Nightmare on Elm Street Rules

So we have been re-watching these movies over the last couple of months with some friends and, eventually, we will be putting up an appropriate blog. However for now, here are some drinking rules for movie #1. Drink: Whenever someone falls asleep Whenever we see Freddy When we hear Freddy’s claws scraping When someone gets slashed When […]
