In the horror movie landscape, there are rare opportunities for victims to just lay back and have a good time. Particularly when a slow-walking murderer or a terrifying creature from another world is stalking their every move. However, victims are people too, and as such, they have a basic need for interaction and mingling. In other words, for getting their PARTY ON!
Not an uncommon theme whatsoever, parties in horror movies are used as a plot device that allows viewers to easily relate to the situation presented on the screen. No matter how convoluted or creepy it ends up being. A party is an everyday occurrence, which can rapidly turn catastrophic when the wrong components are placed together.

Well, let's hope that these party-goers enjoyed themselves while the beers were still nice and cold. Here are 10 horror movie parties we wouldn't want to be invited to.
