Here at Bloody Good Horror we spend much of our time talking about good movies and bad movies alike, and picking apart the things that place titles in either category. In horror specifically, there is a beautiful gradient, comprised of everything from "so bad it's good" to "just plain bad." For many movies in this grey area, the viewing experience itself - who you watch it with and how - can be as important as the movie itself. In that tradition, monthly on a Thursday we'll fondly recall one of those kinds of movies that seem made for the loud and alcohol-fueled viewing party, and give you the framework to host a screening of your very own, complete with imbibing instructions!
Note: BGH reminds you to respect the minimum age requirement for drinking in whatever god forsaken hellhole you live in.
It's been a week of upsets! First the Eagles won the Super Bowl for the first time in franchise history and now the crew at Bloody Good Horror is doing something truly unprecedented! We are bringing you a drinking game about a horror movie about a kid who is afraid to fall asleep because his dreams are real that DOESN'T involve Freddy Krueger.
Slated for release in 2015, Mike Flanagan's Before I Wake recently dropped on Netflix and we decided we just couldn't leave you hanging. Flanagan has brought us a lot of pretty dang good genre fare, plus this one stars a scraggly Thomas Jane and the kid from Room, so you know it's going to be decent (we hope!). Don't let the delayed release get you down, and if it does, just crack open a cold one and we'll get ya through it!
1. Drink for the moths. Not to be confused with the butterflies.
2. Sip every time you see those dead-eyed dream people.
3. Fisnish your drink if you recognize director Mike Flanagan in his cameo!
4. Quaff (see how fancy we are?) for the eventual explanation of why this poor little boy has these scar dreams.
5. Take a swig every time he falls asleep. Don't fall asleep!
