BGH Thirsty Thursdays - The Purge: Election Year

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.

New year, new you, same us! It's January and with the holidays all wrapped up, we're getting back at it and back to our franchise! We are halfway through the Purge franchise, and quickly closing on the film that many consider to be the strongest in the series. No, sorry, not this one.

Just in time for the midterms...wait, those were in Novemnber? You mean we could have planned this better? Damn it. 

Anyway, this is another one of those Purge movies. You get the idea. Once a year, all crime is legal, blah blah blah. This time, there is an election involved, and some pretty damn fine set pieces, including a pretty dope bit with christmas lights, a hybrid car, and "Party in the USA." So without further ado, here are your drinking game rules!



1. Drink for every ominous shot of people prepping for the Purge.

2. Gulp whenever Frank Grillo does something badass.

3. Chug for "Party in the USA."

4. Drink whenever characters make a bad decision.

5. Take a sip whenever the politics feel too real...



Sophie's introduction into the magic that is the horror genre was watching Halloween at a party in high school, and since then she's never looked back. She may be the wimpiest horror fan you have ever met, but she won't ever let that stop her!
