BGH Thirsty Thursdays - Halloween III: Season of the Witch

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 the spookiest time of year and, as such, we here at Bloody Good Horror have decided to bless you with not one, but two drinking games this month and two #TweetwithBGHs! We know, we kind of rock!

For our second Thirsty Thursday in Spooky Season, we're tackling perhaps the most contentious installment in the Halloween franchise. At the time, filmgoers flocking to the theaters to see another Michael Myers movie were shocked to find a movie whose central antagonist is a Celtic warlock masquerading as the owner of a local toy manufacturer.

To this day you will find die hard fans of the Halloween films are of two minds about this movie. Some hate it for its lack of continuity and the big Shape spaced hole where Michael should be. Others, meanwhile, love its campy fun and the absurd performance turned in by Tom Atkins. Which side are you on?

 

Rules:

 

1. Drink for every Silver Shamrock commercial jingle.

2. Cheers to spooky season! Have a swig for every costume you see. 

3. Drink every time we meet a new quirky character only for them to be disptched by witches, robots, or lasers (I know, THIS MOVIE ROCKS!)

4. Take a sip to drown your sorrows whenever Tom Atkins is creepy and rude to the women in his life.

5. Chug for bugs!
