This week on Alcohollywood, we’re headed back to the 1980s with the Stephen King-written werewolf flick Silver Bullet, starring Gary Busey as alcoholic uncle Red, who helps handicapped Corey Haim track down a werewolf that’s killing the increasingly-simpleminded denizens of his small Maine town. Luckily, they’ve got the help of their spunky sister, a bunch of unfounded assumptions, and Corey’s flipping-sweet motorized wheelchair, the “Silver Bullet”!
Keep a look out for other actors who probably shouldn’t be here, including Terry O’Quinn as the well-meaning town sheriff, Everett McGill as a preacher with a terrible secret (SPOILER: he’s the werewolf), and Lawrence Tierney as the town bartender. Bite into our custom cocktail and drinking rules for Silver Bullet!
