Here at Bloody Good Horror we spend much of our time talking about good movies and bad movies alike, picking apart the things that place titles in either category. In horror specifically (and 90s nostalgia trips), 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 sort 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 summer vacation gang and you know what that means! No school! No parents!
Ok, so let's be real. We're all grown and our school days are likely behind us, but that doesn't mean we can't still love summertime! Summer is a season that is built for nostalgia. From the kids running to the ice cream trucks on their routes, to the abysmal heat and sweatiness, there really is no time quite like summer. In honor of that nostalgia (and our dear friend and colleague, Andrew) our Thirsty Thursday this month concerns the 1995 film, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie.
So grab your favorite drink, whether it's a cocktail or a Yoo Hoo, and your buddies, because it's drinkin' time!
1. Cheers to nostalgia - drink for 90's slang that was already out of date in 1995.
2. Swig every time the CG effects hurt hour eyes and your soul.
3. Drink whenever the Bulk and Skull theme plays.
4. Sip every time you remember that Ivan Ooze was in Raiders of the Lost Ark.
5. Chug whenever Alpha Five says "Ayayay."
