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.
This month's Thirsty Thursday movie is brought to you by good old nostalgia. As a burgeoning horror fan, I convinvced a group of my sorority and fraternatiy friends to attend a matinee screening of Sorority Row back in 2009 so that I wouldn't have to go see it alone. And before you ask, yes I was in college in 2009, and yes I am a baby.
Sorority Row is one of many early 2000's remakes or reboots of horror movies from the 70's and 80's that were maybe just one tier below classic; think Prom Night and My Bloody Valentine 3D. Sorority Row stands out among the group, though, as one of the few that I would qualify as successful. This movie is just about as rote as you can get, but it's one hell of a ride! So grab some pals and some cold ones, we're going back to school!
