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.
Global warming might be trying to trick us, but unseasonably high temperatures can't hide the fact that the happiest time of year has arrived. The spooky season has come, friends, and it's time to do what we nerds do best, consume tons of creepy media! Whether you have tried and true October traditions, or you are wracking your brain to think of things to watch, the Bloody Good Horror team is here for you.
This month's Thirsty Thursday will be dedicated to the found-footage film, The Houses October Built, about a friend of mildly obnoxious friends who are on a quest to find the most extreme haunt. We've all been there, right? So pick your favorite pumpkin-flavored beverage and tune in. Stay spooky my friends!
1. Drink the pain away every time you spot an old found footage trope.
2. Sip for every sighting of the creepy doll.
3. Take a swig if they make ya jump.
4. Tap out - Finish your drink when you would have been out of there!
