Jo Gabriel is the girl behind Monster Girl. She started The Last Drive In, her vintage film and television blog, in 2006. Initially driven by her love of classic horror and sci-fi, The Last Drive In evolved to incorporate film noir, suspense, cult & classic genres diverging in Monster Girl’s well known “cheeky,” “always sincere” style.
The blog’s atmosphere is one of nostalgia for those golden days when Silver Screen met tube with dials overflowing with memorable actors, writers, directors, and visionaries. The Last Drive In is filled with commentary on dramatic, cerebral, cheesy, melodramatic, gothic, cultish, thrilling, distinct, and often innovative films both well known and forgotten.
Jo Gabriel is also an internationally renowned singer/songwriter who derives much of her inspired passion as a recording artist from the stuff that dreams are made of-those very films and early TV shows that she grew up surrounded by.
