Have you ever watched the film Scream? If you haven’t, I highly suggest you do! If you have, think back to that scene where the group of teenagers are talking about the “rules” of scary movies. The guidelines include abstaining from sexual activity, not drinking or abusing drugs, and never, ever, saying “I’ll be right back.” If you break any of these rules, you’ll probably be murdered in the next scene by the masked killer. Although this scene was a humorous moment in the film, it highlights something interesting about slasher films: there is a formula.
I am not the first person to write about this. In fact, there are actual books on the subject, such as this one. And even if the formula is not exact, audiences can make some solid predictions about what will happen, who the final girl will be, and which jock is going to be the killer’s first victim. With that being said, I present to you all The Slasher Movie Drinking Game!
- You must be at least 21 to play, and please drink responsibly. Also, have a ride home!
- Pour a drink and read through the drinking game.
- If any of the events happen as explained in the game list, take a sip of your drink. Play till the end of the film, or until you’ve had enough.
- Have fun and enjoy!
- *Please note: this game is meant for traditional slasher films. If you need some suggestions, this blog post features some slasher films. Halloween, Scream, Prom Night, Happy Death Day, and A Nightmare on Elm Street are also some other ones to check out!
