Watch the 1982 theatrical trailer of “Halloween III: Season of the Witch”
starring Tom Atkins and Stacey Nelkin
Opening night, July 8th 2022 is the “Halloween III Throwdown” with the cast and crew of the 1982 film showing up for a 40th anniversary reunion and confronting festival founder Joe Bob Briggs over his long standing opposition to the only movie in the Halloween franchise that departs from the iconic Michael Myers narrative.
The Friday-night event will consist of a screening of the movie, interrupted several times for commentary and debate, followed by a one-hour Q&A with all involved “to determine, once and for all, whether Halloween III belongs in the franchise.” The issue will be settled by an audience vote.
The Saturday night program on July 9th will feature two cult movies presented in the format of The Last Drive-In with Joe Bob Briggs, and in keeping with the show’s tradition, guests and titles will not be announced in advance.
Sunday night, July 10, brings The World Drive-In Movie Festival to the Malco Summer Drive-In honoring filmmakers who work outside the traditional financing systems of Los Angeles, New York and London.
Joe Bob will introduce the ten winning films and will present the filmmakers with the coveted Hubbie Award, engraved on a Chevy hubcap.
Submissions for the World Drive-In Movie Festival open at 1pm Eastern on April 11, 2022 and close at 11:59pm Eastern on May 11, 2022.
