ENTERLINE MEDIA Q&A #3- JOE BOB BRIGGS

ENTERLINE MEDIA: What is the first movie you saw at the drive-in?

JOE BOB BRIGGS:  Well, I don't recall because I was probably about two or three years old. It was probably some lame Technicolor sex farce that my parents wanted to see, with Paul Lynde as the wacky neighbor.

EM: What is the best movie you seen at a drive-in theater?

JBB: "The Texas Chain Saw Massacre." Mission Drive-in, San Antonio. The original.

EM: How many drive-in theaters have you been to?

JBB:  I've probably been to about 100.

EM: When was the last time you been to the drive-in?

JBB:  Labor Day weekend. I was the host of Drive-Invasion at the Starlight Drive-In in Atlanta--three days of cult movies, rock and roll, and motorcycle shows.

EM: What are your Favorite movies?

JBB:  The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, Night of the Living Dead, Hellraiser, Suspiria, Black Sunday--those would be at the top of the list.

EM: Favorite TV shows?

JBB:  The Investigators, City Confidential, Cold Case Files, Forensic Files.

EM: Favorite Horror movies (and favorite horror movies on DVD)?

JBB:  Same ones I listed earlier. MOST of my favorites are horror.

EM:  What is the last DVD you watched?

JBB:  "Curse of Her Flesh"

EM: What is the most disappointing movie of the year (or last 12 months)?

JBB:  The Grudge.

EM: Why did MonsterVision end?

JBB:  TNT was "re-positioning" itself to have less of a male audience and more of a female audience, and they felt like my show was just too low-class and male-oriented.

EM: Do you wish MonsterVision could return to TV?

JBB:  Yes, I wish I had some kind of show on TV. Maybe not MonsterVision, but something similar.

EM:  What do you think of Hunter S. Thompson and what you do think Hunter will write about this year's presidental election?

JBB:  I've been in loose contact with Hunter for years. He used to send me pictures of stuff he exploded on his ranch. I didn't see any of his stuff on the presidential election, but I did like his quote at one of the rallies. Something to the effect of "Four years ago we had a country that was rich and at peace. Now we have a country that's poor and constantly at war."

EM: Have you seen the movie DOUBLE VISION (aka Shaun tong), it's a great thriller/horror movie that came out on DVD last year in the USA (I reviewed the DVD last year and it was recently repriced in the last few weeks)?

JBB:  Sorry, I missed that one. Shame on me.

EM:  Getting back to drive-in mvoie theaters, why do you think some of the last few have held on and some still do great business (the Midway Drive-In has always turned a profit even though Signature Theaters has been trying to sell it for commercial development for at least 3 years)?

JBB:  Most drive-ins make money. They just don't make as much money as the value of the raw land they sit on.

EM: What is the weirdest thing that happened to you while you were on the road travelling?

JBB:  I was in San Francisco performing at the Great American Music Hall, which is right next door to the Mitchell Brothers porno emporium, and the Mitchell Brothers sent over a giant box of porn and offered me free VIP privileges in the champagne room, whatever THAT meant. I never found out.

EM:  What year featured the best Halloween?

JBB:  The first one: 1978.

EM: What are the best (or favorite) Horror related web sites?

JBB:  There's not a good one, in terms of a comprehensive one that is error-free and original.

EM: Last question (I hope as long as I don't have any questions coming out of your answers to these questions)- what's next for Joe Bob Briggs?

JBB:  I don't know what I'm doing next week, much less next year. I'm sure I'll be doing more DVD commentaries, more books, and the occasional film.
