Prom Night is a scream queen slasher at its finest. There’s a ballroom full of bitchy high schoolers (a faux L.A. dance club in the 2008 version), a killer with overtly boring motives and plenty of screeching. The remake replaces Jamie Lee Curtis with Brittany Snow, so we went with the modern scream queen lineup for the drinking game. We love you, Jamie Lee, but we’re not so big on ’80s perms.
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. It’s prom, so go wild. Just no Hpnotiq.
As usual, our rules call for 1 drink at every:
– sex scene
– boob sighting
– jump scare
