B movies galore!
27 January 2013 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

I watched "Monstervision" every week while it was on TV. I learned a ton about the movies, and sometimes learned about movies for the first time. Half of the fun was watching archetypal Texan host Joe Bob Briggs rattle off the trivia and the Drive-In Totals (18 dead bodies, two tons of twisted metal, 10 breasts, shotgun fu, chainsaw fu, we'll give it two stars).

I can definitely say that it's thanks to Briggs, as well as Elvira and all the folks at "Mystery Science Theater 3000", that I know a lot of the B movies that I know. Both the movies and the shows running them are just fun to watch. You're sure to love "Monstervision" if you can ever find an episode of it.
