If there’s one thing R.J. MacReady likes, it’s a stiff drink before battling the tentacled, shape-shifted terror sent to reap paranoia in The Thing. While stationed in Antarctica, MacReady (Sir badass Kurt Russel) and his merry band of men smoke pot, get hammered and light just about everything on fire in search of the thing. I remember my first drink.

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.

The Legend
H = Take a hit.
D = 1 drink of beer.
S = 1 shot of the hard stuff. And you know that MacReady would drink nothing but J&B Scotch.
As usual, our rules call for 1 drink at every death, sex scene and boob sighting. Too bad this one is a complete and utter sausage fest.
