The poor residents of Mystic Falls are constantly faced with supernatural drama, death, and destruction. So it’s only natural that they’d want to let loose once in a while with a Night of Illumniation party here a Founder’s Day gala there. And in Season 4 of The Vampire Diaries, Elena, Damon, and Caroline will be continuing tradition when they drop by a nearby college campus (the one where Bonnie’s grandma used to teach and where Aunt Jenna used to study) for a Halloween bash…at a super duper frat party! In fact, the party is hardcore, the theme is actually “Murder House” and attendees dress up like famous serial killers or their victims (if you’re morbid like that). Thus, in honor of the first taste of Greek life on TVD, here are some of our favorite frat party scenes from movies and other television shows:
Buffy Summers' First Frat Party in 'Reptile Boy'This party from Buffy The Vampire Slayer Season 2 was off the chain....as in a bunch of high school girls (including Buffy and Cordelia) found themselves chained up in the basement of a frat house after being roofied by cold-hearted. A fun night out quickly dissolved into scary-ass sacrificial rituals and trying not to get eaten by a slimy monster called forth by greedy fraternity brothers. Luckily, Buffy showed them who's boss! Get it, girl!
Every Single Party Scene in 'Animal House'The movie that inspired the collegiate Greek culture as we know it today. What happens when a misfit group of fraternity members challenge the dean of their conservative university? Keg stands, extreme dance parties, and lots of shenanigans, that's what!
Toga Party on ABC Family's GreekNothing screams "frat party" better than a simple bedsheet fashioned into a toga. The homeboys on ABC Family's series, Greek taught us as much when they decided to pull out the traditional attire (thank you Animal House) -- and they took it a step further by adding laurel wreathes into the mix!
Buffy's Second Frat Party in 'Fear Itself'Beer bad? Technically, there were no spirits of the alcoholic nature served at this party -- just spirits of the demonic variety. When Buffy, Willow, Xander, and Oz hit up Alpha Delta's haunted house -- they get more than just tricks and treats. They get the living daylights scared out of them when Gachnar, a demon with the ability to materialize terror, is accidentally conjured and wreaks havoc on the Halloween party. Luckily, Buffy -- with the help of Giles and his almighty occult book series -- squashes the heck out of the little hellraiser. Out of sight, out of mind.
The Aztec Fiesta in The House BunnyWhat's an Aztec party? It's a rites of passage for young women...really! Here's what goes down: A young, attractive virgin is sacrificed by spiraling down a human-built slide and into a large tub of red wine. The purpose of it is to put the virgin on display so that she will receive plenty of attention from gentlemen callers. If it sounds slutty, trust us, it's not. It's a drunken good time as Anna Farris' character points out throughout the film -- and a hilarious one to witness!
What’s your favorite frat party scene of all time? And if you had to dress up like a famous murderer who would it be? (The Ripper of Monterrey? Shudder!)
