Legendary Horror Host Joe Bob Briggs and Black Vortex Cinema Team to Bring an Interactive & Immersive Haunt & Horror Film Festival to Southern California This October

Los Angeles is a Halloween town and the spooky holiday is far from canceled this year. This status has been reinforced with the announcement of “Joe Bob’s Haunted Drive-In”. Legendary Horror Host Joe Bob Briggs and Los Angeles-based Black Vortex Cinema have announced today their partnership on “Joe Bob’s Haunted Drive-In,” a brand new, one-of-a-kind, COVID-conscious haunt experience/short horror film festival now being curated, and coming to drive-ins in Southern California this October.

Featuring a mix of live actors and curated short films and prerecorded appearances, the event aims blend the nostalgia of watching a drive-in fright film festival with a live, interactive haunt. As you and your friends watch Joe Bob, Darcy, and Felissa onscreen in the “Joe Bob’s Haunted Drive-in” film fest from the safety of your own car, the drive-in itself will become overrun by flesh-hungry ghouls fresh from a Halloween party, eager to terrorize you! Keep your hands and arms inside the vehicle kids!

“I’m excited to bring the best short horror films you submit to drive-ins, but I take no responsibility for any zombie attacks,” added horror icon Joe Bob Briggs, who will act as the pre-recorded Master of Ceremonies of “Joe Bob’s Haunted Drive-In,” along with his “The Last Drive-In” sidekick Darcy the Mail Girl, and scream queen & actress Felissa Rose.

“During these troubling times, we’ve seen many of our favorite seasonal Halloween events being forced to close, so we wanted to provide a safe, exciting, and scary new way to celebrate our favorite season from the comfort of our own cars,” said Black Vortex Cinema founder Christian Ackerman. “And we couldn’t be more happy to join forces with Joe Bob on this. His wicked humor onscreen is the perfect counterbalance to the live scares that’ll be happening throughout!”

Tickets for “Joe Bob’s Haunted Drive-In” start at $99 per car. For more information, including soon-to-be-announced screening dates, special event packages, possible live appearances by Joe Bob, Darcy, Felissa and more, sign up for the email list at www.JoeBobsHauntedDriveIn.com now.
