The Most Dangerous Pub Crawl In Cinema
Brawling bars, seedy saloons and an exploding pub

submit to reddit

As US moviegoers are about to discover, The World’s End is a handy reminder that there are worse outcomes to a bar crawl than a questionable doner and a category five hangover. With that lesson in mind, we decided to explore some of the other movie hostelries, well, you really wouldn’t want to explore. The Old West is filled with salons that make that grimy pub you always avoid look like the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, so we’ve decided to start there and head east, tail between our legs, before ending in an old favourite in a galaxy far, far away. Keep your head down and the exit in view.

The Most Dangerous Pub Crawl In Cinema | Titty Twister
Titty Twister

Film: From Dusk Till Dawn (1996)

Location: Mexico
Opening hours: See film title
Clientele: Vampires, mostly
Entertainment: Live music, a selection of hot and cold pussy
Price of a round: Very, very expensive

On the surface, this looks like a fun night out for those of a more, well, open-minded persuasion. There’s a lively crowd enjoying snake-clad performance artiste Santánico Pandemónium (Salma Hayek) to the music of Tito & Tarantula, and, frankly, who wouldn’t enjoy that? (Apart from the snake.) Seth and Richie Gecko (George Clooney and Quentin Tarantino) certainly do. There’s only one minor problem. Everyone else is a vampire and things get bloody, fast. Our advice? Go for lunch.

3 No Karova Milk Bar???
Seriously guys and girls!?!? Where's the Karova Milk Bar, from Kubrick's "A Clockwork Orange"? It's probably the most obvious oversight you've ever made. More

4 Slaughtered lamb
As long as this one was included I'm happy, could have possibly added a pub in lock stock and two smoking barrels. More
