Since this seems to be a popular feature, let’s have another go at getting blind drunk through a terrible movie (for those of you who drink). This one is built for classic Hammer gothic horror, but will work for just about anything with a castle and some gore in it.

The master will not join you for dinner, for he does not drink… wine.
