You have to wonder why Paul Rudd never did more horror. In Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers — the best of the post-Carpenter sequels — Rudd plays a grown-up version of Tommy Doyle, the young boy who watched Mikey chase his babysitter with a butcher knife in the original. That set-up alone is worth a drink, but add a legitimately creepy performance from comedy stud Rudd and it’s worth a hangover.
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. Let’s go with Breckenridge bourbon this time.
X = Strikeout. Do all three of the above, then blow the hit out.
C = Categories. Go around the group and name Paul Rudd movies. First person to blank a movie drinks.
As usual, our rules call for 1 drink at every death, sex scene and boob sighting.
