Drink Some Blood and Beer with the ‘Dark Shadows’ Drinking Game

Drinking Games

Fans of the original Dark Shadows television series may not have been wild about the Tim Burton big-screen adaptation of the story, but those who like Burton’s many collaborations with Johnny Depp should be interested.

Depp plays the legendary Barnabas Collins, who was turned into a vampire by a scorned witch. After returning home to his family home of Collinwood after being asleep for almost 200 years, he faces a new world of 1972 and his old adversary… in color!

This vampire comedy hits Blu-ray and DVD this week, so you can check it out for better or for worse. At least you’ll be seeing it in the appropriately-themed month of October, rather than when it hit theaters in May.

And now, to cover our butts… This game is only for people over the age of 21. Please drink responsibly, and don’t reject the love of a witch and keep her around as a servant.

Suggested drink: Sap Vampire Maple Lager… or the blood of someone who has been drinking heavily
