Welcome to the The Best Party Horror Movies where we name the BEST horror movies to watch with a couple of drinks and some friends in tow, even if it’s a “watch party”. So movies that are intentionally or unintentionally funny, extreme, fast-paced, goofy, and raunchy – the fun times in the house! Movies you can watch or have in the background. We even threw a party game in there, one tailored to each episode’s selection, including suggested “dosages” for toasting (or roasting) her all the sleaze, cheese, guts and gore you can cram into your cranium. So come in here and be crazy… ‘cuz it’s an awesome party!
