In Halloween II, Rob Zombie tests the boundaries of cinematic violence by unleashing a stab-happy Mike Myers on hospitals, strip clubs and Laurie Strode’s fucked-up psyche. Call it brutal, call it offensive, call it one hell of a statement – either way, your liver ain’t coming away unscathed.
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.
Note: This film is not for everyone, but then again, neither is a 40 of Olde English. Why not pair the two for a night you’ll never forget, even if you desperately want to? Here’s how it works: Don’t open your 40 until the first death. From there, you have until Laurie learns about her, uh, bizarre family tree to drain it completely. If you don’t, chug what remains and take a shot. If you do, congratulations and keep drinking.
H = Take a hit.
D = 1 drink of beer.
S = 1 shot of the hard stuff. We kept it cheap and dirty with Evan Williams.
X = Strikeout. Combination H and D, then blow the hit out. Believe us, you’ll want to skip the S with this film.
As usual, our rules call for 1 drink at every death, sex scene and boob sighting.
