Who knew Lake Placid is actually a pretty decent creature feature? Made in the bloated ’90s, this gratuitous tale of a monster gator (or is it a monster croc?) with a cult following has a gator eating a bear, a gator beheading a man and Betty White. Cheers!
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.
S = 1 shot of the hard stuff. I honestly can’t remember what it was. Maybe Jim Beam?
As usual, our rules call for 1 drink at every death, sex scene and boob sighting.
Every gratuitous aerial tracking shot — D
The sheriff is eating a Twinkie? Must have the munchies — H
Every dive to the coral reef wreck…or whatever that creepy underwater thing is — D
Every jump scare. And there are oodles — D
Every time scientist Kelly Scott (aka Bridget friggin Fonda) mopes or whines or otherwise bitches — D
Every time Bridget friggin Fonda gets dumped in the lake — D
Hey, gratuitous campout party scene — 2 drinks
Hey, gratuitously bad flirt scene with Bridget friggin Fonda and Jack Wells (aka Bill “Spaceballs” Pullman) — D
When the gator takes a dude’s fucking head off — S
When the gator eats a goddamn grizzly bear, because come on — S
When you’re Betty White, the gator eats your sacrificial cow — 2 drinks (1 for you, 1 for the cow)
Hey, gratuitous helicopter crash — D
Baby gator attacks!! Or is it a baby croc? — Finish your beer
