BGH Thirsty Thursdays "The Babysitter" Drinking Game

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.


As is sometimes the case here at Bloody Good Horror, our rules are made to be broken! Those of you who follow our Thirsday Thursday games every month have surely noticed that sometimes we choose movies that are nothing sort of magnificent. And what makes a bad movie, anyway? It's all so monstrously subjective.

And this month is brings you what is surely one of our rule-breaking movies. Netflix's The Babysitter immediately garnered attention, and so we just had to take it on. Just about all of us probably had babysitters growing up, and I would wager that not a one of them was like this! 

 

Rules:

1. Drink for every archetype that comes your way (hint: we've got 'em all!) 

2. Chug whenever this movie gives you flashbacks to your own bad babysitter

3. Arachnophobia!! Drink every time you see a spider and think, "tarantulas don't spin webs"!

4. Take a swig for every great kill

5. Sympathy sip whenever you see Bella Thorne, Amityville: The Awakening may be a flop, but she'll always have The Babysitter
