Week four of season four of The Last Drive-In with Joe Bob Briggs had some interesting hints. The hints were first movie being an anniversary tribute celebration and the second movie was a tribute to someone else’s tribute. This was another week that I couldn’t have thought of any guesses, which meant I didn’t even try it. The movies ended up being interesting. The first movie was Nosferatu and the second movie was Nosferatu: The Vampyre. This week was a break from me not having seen both movies.
Nosferatu was the first movie and I had actually seen this movie before, though it was a different version. I had seen the version that was backed by the band Type O Negative. This was the version with an orchestral score. Joe Bob’s background info for this movie was so incredibly interesting. He gave all sorts of info not only about the movie but also the people that made it. He even went into the mess that came from Bram Stoker’s widow being alive and the stink she raised for this movie. The transfer of the film that was shown was excellent and looked beautiful. The final segment ended with several amazingly bad vampire jokes.
The second movie was Nosferatu: The Vampyre which I had wanted to see for a long time but just had never gotten around to doing so. Joe Bob’s info about the movie was so much fun, which comes from talking about Werner Herzog and Klaus Kinski. I personally enjoy hearing the stories about the volatile relationship between those two. Seeing the changes that were made to the story between the two movies is really interesting. Herzog’s movie is more of a reimagining of the original movie. There was even mention of the four other Dracula movies released the same year as this movie. I’ll mention the mail bag for this movie because it had to do with a roleplaying game, which I’m a fan of. The episode ended with a joke that got an actual laugh from Darcy.
The Last Drive-In with Joe Bob Briggs week four of season four is another week of fun with the rest of the Mutant Fam. Darcy tweeted out that there would be ten episodes this season, which will have us until the start of July. Next week is the halfway point which feels weird because it basically just started. You’ll be able to catch the episode once its uploaded on Sunday on Shudder, Amazon Prime, and AMC Plus. I give week four of season four of The Last Drive-In with Joe Bob Briggs 10 stars out of 10.
