We hosted our annual Halloween fun this weekend. This year, instead of a costume party, we had a scary movie festival. I especially hate horror flicks, but i use Halloween as a time to challenge myself. Not that i have to get used to heads getting chopped off, and litres of blood flying through the air, but i see it as a chance to 'get tough'. And, we can't have a movie night without the appropriate snacks - chips, dips, and pretzels. We also bought way too much candy and had that readily available, and of course as party favours to take home.
Another great way to sooth the soul during these movies is to have a good hard drink. Ours was this punch that i created:
Creme de Cacoa
1) Pour the spritzer and juice into a punch bowl. Add the liquor and ice.
2) Take about 8 litchees and drop them in the bowl - they serve as good 'eyes' that float in the punch.
Amityville Horror - the original
Evil Dead 2
