BGH Thirsty Thursdays - "There's Nothing Out There" 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, every first Thursday of the month 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 mimimum age requirement for drinking in whatever god forsaken hellhole you live in.


March is upon us, friends! As the mercury finally starts to creep back up after a long and cold winter. It's time for spring break, y'all - and all things that brings with it - mainly, young people drinking copious amounts of alcohol and making bad decisions. Naturally, we had to pick a spring break horror movie for this month's Thirsty Thursday.

I first heard about There's Nothing Out There about a week ago when a friend of mine went to a midnight screening in LA. He described the movie like this, "It was shot in '89 on virtually no budget, and showed a group of teens in a cabin in the woods weekend getaway, unaware that a mutant alien frog creature is stalking them." If that isn't enough to get you on board, I don't know what would be! This movie also features a horror fan character (a la Scream's Randy, before Jamie Kennedy made the trope famous) who no one believes and is chock full of meta horror that is sure to appeal to everyone with a soft spot for practical effects gore and a penchant for homage.

Rules:

  • Take a sip for every horror homage or reference
  • Drink for the rules!
  • Drink whenever anyone mentions flashlights
  • Sip in solidarity whenever the normies shit on horror
  • Drink for the killer frog POV shots
  • Raise a glass for that good old practical effects magic
  • Finish your drink when Mike finally realizes they can escape in the car...only to realize they can't
