Alien Drinking Game


“What are my chances?”
“No chance. No chance in hell.”

I approach new releases in the theater like most technologies: wait until a newer, updated version comes out, then cash in on previous damn good products at a bargain price.  That’s why I’m waiting until The Dark Knight Rises comes out to watch Promethus.  Far fewer movie goers, easy pickens’ for good seats, and really shitty nachos.  Hence, I have to while to wait, so I figured I’d catch up on some Ridley Scott lore with a solid Alien rental from the fantastic local Waterfront Video store.

Alien made me jump out of my chest a few times for sure.  A fantastic thriller that for the most part stands the test of time.  I’ve heard it argued that Aliens 2 is the better film.  If so, it would join the level of LOTR:TTT and Evil Dead 2 in Esteban’s movie judgement system.  If not, it would join Jurassic Park 2, Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights, and the Karate Kid featuring the chick as being effing terrible.

Without further ado, here are your drinking rules:

Drink every time:

  • A non-human appears on screen
  • Someone talks to mother, or goes inside mother (get your mind out of the gutter)
  • A CRT monitor turns on, or turns off
  • A crew member makes a dumb decision
  • A crew member is lost


Drink every time vapor is expelled.
