I remember one of the original controversies of Nightbreed was that it took the issue of racism and dealt with it straight to its face. That might be why the establishment chopped the movie to pieces. This is a great way to end season 4. Joe Bob also gave a great diatride about why we should get off the internet. Keep the Drive-In alive, it's the reason weirdos like us who never fit in growing up are still around.
Love Nightbreed Joe Bob & Darcy! As a BISEXUAL Aspie I imediately related to Clive’s labor of lob
Yall complain too much. Joe Bob wouldn't like you. If you don't watch live, you ain't a true mutant.
I'm always sad when the season is over because besides loving the movies and Joe Bob's stories/pontifications, theres a spirit of comradery that is in every episode with the "mail" segments, hearing other people say some of the exact same things I've thought and felt about these movies and Joe Bob since I started watching in the TNT days. I'm relieved to hear there's another season ahead of us, and I hope The Last Drive In remains a part of Shudder for years to come.
