It’s mid-October, so obviously the world is already decked out in Christmas bullshit and seasonal food that goes out of date in November. Christmas coming early is obviously ridiculous, but the real tragedy behind it is that Hallowe’en – king of all the fatuous seasonal holidays – gets left behind, struggling to be heard under the mountains of chocolate Santa Claus’ and reams of low-quality, pound-land wrapping paper. Well bollocks to that! Stick two-fingers up to Christmas and get terrifyingly drunk with our Classic Horror Movies Drinking Game!
Competition closed. Winners: P Celments, S Klee, C Dempster
