DAYS UNTIL HALLOWEEN:

8

DRINK:

Berry Scary Martini

1 cup Ice
1 ounce Black vodka
2 ounces Cherry juice
Fresh raspberries and blueberries, for garnish

Combine ice, vodka and cherry juice in a cocktail shaker; shake vigorously. Pour into a martini glass. Thread raspberries and blueberries onto a cocktail skewer and place in drink. Serve immediately.

EAT:

I Scream Sandwitches

This rich, dark chocolate cookie recipe is combined with green chocolate mint chip ice cream for a homemade Halloween dessert. With a little bit of extra skill and help from Martha Stewart, the cookies are twisted while hot to create little witches hats that top the ice cream sandwich.

GO:

Home. And watch scary movies. I know all of you took my advice yesterday, went out immediately to catch 30 Days of Night, and now you’re totally hooked on watching scary movies every night until Halloween. And really, what else is there to do on a Tuesday night besides curl up on the couch with a bunch of movies? My personal top 10 favorite horror films are: The Shining, Amityville Horror, The Ring, Blair Witch Project, The Mothman Prophesies, The Sixth Sense, Gothika, Stir of Echoes, The Exorcist, Poltergeist and Pet Cemetery. What are some of yours?

    Gothika? Really?

    Really?

    Not The Omen? or Alien? or Jaws? Or even Ju-on or the original Japanese Dark Water? John Carpenter’s The Thing?

    Yep. Gothika genuinely scared me. I created my list by what actually scared me, which is different for everybody. Most lists I see are “classics.” There are a lot more “classics” I could have added to my list, but they didn’t scare me. For instance Alien–I don’t find alien movies very scary–Jaws didn’t do much for me either. The Omen I thought was incredibly, incredibly stupid, if you’re talking about the remake. I haven’t seen the original. Nor The Thing nor the Japanese Dark Water.
    But, these will be good horror-movie additions to my October. Thanks John!

    Why would I talk about the remake of The Omen? Why ruin a perfectly good film? =)

    Alien was possibly the best horror movie I ever saw. The sequels, while good, were more sci-fi action. Alien was just… well, I guess it’d be cross-genre.

    Jaws is a subtle form of a horror movie, I think. Up there with Rosemary’s Baby, another good one.
