Hi, Bryan Here….

Since the release of the ‘Project X’ film; there have been several reports of real parties that have inspired some real teens across the country to do the same thing with tragic consequences.  There has been reports and stories of teens breaking into vacant homes and throwing these wild parties and most recently, one party turned deadly for one teenager.

ABC reports that a spring break rave in a Houston mansion that was meant to emulate a movie turned deadly early Wednesday morning after several attendees fired guns, killing one person as police tried to break up the party.  The party, which attracted between 500 and 1,000 guests, was meant to copy the party thrown in “Project X”.  The unidentified male victim suffered multiple gunshot wounds and died at Ben Taub General Hospital.


Daniel Menjivara, a 22-year-old college student, said “Project X” and the fact it was spring break were the reasons he and many others attended the Houston house party. Menjivara said he was “the exception” at the party and was surprised to find the crowd was mostly composed of teenagers. “The house got pretty full. You could barely move around,” he said.

Trash cans full of spiked punch were set out for partygoers. Wet foam blanketed the floor. Women who wore bathing suits were granted free entry to the party, according to the flyer. News of the party spread quickly on Facebook and Twitter, attracting a large turnout to the home, which is surrounded by a field. It’s not clear if it is occupied during the day. The nearest neighbor is down the street. Around midnight, police responded to a noise disturbance at the home and shut down the party.


“Kids took to the streets, but the parking lot was overpacked so you couldn’t get out,” Menjivar said. “It was just people in the actual street. They got into arguments and started shooting each other.”  The gunman was just walking, and he pulled out a gun and started shooting, like for no reason,” Armstrong said. “He shot the boy in the back of the head and fell on the ground. He started shooting at the crowds, but then he ran through the field.



There are also instances of this popping up in Florida and Michigan.  This is nothing new people.  Teens have been doing this forever.  While ‘Project X’ might show in an insane party, the characters in the story are terrible.  They are completely not redeemable in any way and unlikable.  Even the parents are horrible people.  It seems from most of these reports of inspired parties from the movie, they all seem to take place in vacant and foreclosed homes.

Movie Quotes

Saving Private Ryan (1998)
Captain Miller:
Well when I think of home, I... I think of something specific. I think of my, my hammock in the backyard or my wife pruning the rosebushes in a pair of my old work gloves.
Private Ryan:
This, this one night, two of my brothers came and woke me up in the middle of the night. And they said they had a surprise for me. So they took me to the barn up in the loft and there was my oldest brother, Dan, with Alice, Alice Jardine. I mean, picture a girl who just took a nosedive from the ugly tree and hit every branch coming down. And... and Dan's got his shirt off and he's working on this bra and he's tryin to get it off and all of a sudden Shawn just screams out, "Danny you're a young man, don't do it!" And so Alice Jardine hears this and she screams and she jumps up and she tries to get running out of the barn but she's still got this shirt over her head. She goes running right into the wall and knocks herself out. So now Danny's just so mad at us. He, he starts coming after us, but... but at the same time Alice is over there unconscious. He's gotta wa... , wake her up. So he grabs her by a leg and he's drag, dragging her. At the same time he picks up a shovel. And he's going after Shawn, and Shawn's saying, "What are you trying to hit me for? I just did you a favor!" And so this makes Dan more angry. He tries to swing this thing, he looses the shovel, goes outta his grasp and hits a kerosene lantern; the thing explodes, the whole barn almost goes up because of this thing. That was it. That was the last, that was, Dan went off to basic the next day. That was the last night the four of us were together. That was two years ago. Tell me about your wife and those rosebushes?
Captain Miller:
No, no that one I save just for me.
