Weekly DVD Drinking Game: The Thing (2011)

Drinking Games

The rumored-about, questioned and criticized prequel to John Carpenter’s classic 1982 horror flick The Thing has come and gone. Now, it’s coming again, this week to DVD and Blu-ray. The flick tells the story behind the Norwegian outpost in Antarctica, chronicling the first people to dig the Thing out of the ice.

Fans of the Carpenter classic will complain about the overuse of CGI and the pointlessness of the new film, but they may also find some likeable moments if they look hard enough. If not, they can always play this game and knock back a few glasses of Ringnes beer or whatever else they drink in Norway.

And now, to cover our butts… This game is only for people over the age of 21. Please drink responsibly, and don’t dig up any mysterious aliens.

  • The Thing transforms
  • Something explodes or is set on fire
  • Someone is introduced to someone else
  • The dialogue changes from Norwegian to English or English to Norwegian

TAKE A DRINK WHEN YOU SEE…
