HORROR V. OCTORBOR: Alien vs. Predator (2004) w/Grant of History Honeys and Chip & Ironicus

Alien v Predator

This week, Grant of History Honeys and Chip & Ironicus joins us once more for Horror V. Octorbor, continuing our month-long breakdown of ‘versus’ movies with Alien v Predator! Paul W.S. Anderson’s limp, ill-advised match-up movie combining Fox’s biggest sci-fi monsters forgets what made the other two series good in the first place, basically remaking Resident Evil in an ancient Mayan-Aztec-Antarctican(?) temple, complete with paper-thin characters and dated effects. Still, we have a good time with our custom cocktail and drinking rules!

  2. Pour into cocktail class and top with creme de cassis, and serve.

  1. Whenever someone picks up or brandishes a different weapon
  2. Any time Sebastian (Raoul Bova) spouts off pseudo-archaeological bullshit
  3. Every time you see Alien or Predator blood

FINISH YOUR DRINK WHEN:

Lex growls, “You are one ugly motherf–” (can’t say those no-no words, we’re shooting for a PG-13!)
