Have you heard the one about a sleepy college town ravaged by a bloody, brainless slasher flick, a film so ’90s it stars goth sex and Pop Rocks and Tara Reid? No? Then The Macabre Bros. propose a drinking game to Urban Legend, an enjoyable Scream copycat and, oddly enough, a time capsule from our youth. No wonder we turned out like this.
The only thing better than watching horror films? Watching horror films and drinking beers. Drinking lots of beers. The Macabre Bros. give the Internet what it so desperately wants with The Drinking Games, an ongoing series of liver-testing games tailor-made for horror films. Be warned: The rules occasionally give away twists, plot points and other spoilers, so we recommend seeing the films first. Now, let’s get rowdy.
H = Take a hit.
D = 1 drink of beer. And trust us, with all the death going around you’ll want to take polite drinks.
C = Play the game “categories” by naming or quickly describing urban legends. (Hint: It’s more than fair to use legends from the film.) Loser of the game finishes their beer.
X = Strikeout. Combination of the above substances (H then S then D, then blow the hit out).
As usual, our rules call for 1 drink at every sex scene, death and boob sighting.
When you hear a shitty version of the timeless classic “Total Eclipse of the Heart” – H
Any reference to a legit, well-known urban legend (the film’s frat massacre is up for debate…) – D
Jump scare – D
Hey ’90s kids, show love when nostalgia hits you the hardest – D
At the start of every party. After all, this is college – D
Freddy’s the prof! – D
When the adorable white puppy gets, um, dried off – X
When the real killer is revealed – C
