26 Of The Best Halloween Movies Of All Tim(And What To Drink While Watching Them) ; halloween splc

1. Movie: Rosemary’s Baby (1968)
Cocktail: Rosemary Punch

Possibly the best horror film ever made, Rosemary’s Baby is a chilling tale of what can happen when you procreate. Sip this herbalicious punch while watching, and be glad there’s no bun in your oven.

2. Movie: The Wolf Man (1941)
Cocktail: The Blue Moon

It’s the strange moon thats triggers the Wolf Man’s transformation, so what better beverage to sip while it happens than the violet-hued Blue Moon?

4. Movie: Dracula
Cocktail: Dracula’s Kiss

Many have tried to rival Bela Lugosi’s iconic portrayal of the ultimate vampire, but none have succeeded. Revel in the black and white creepiness with this blood red vodka cocktail.

5. Movie: Tales from the Crypt (Season 1)
Cocktail: Black Cat Martini

There are multiple seasons of HBO’s “Tales from the Crypt” all of which are excellent Halloween diversions. But episode three of season one (called Dig That Cat… He’s Real Gone) is one of our favorites. Hence, the two-ingredient Black Cat Martini.

6. Movie: Bride of Frankenstein (1935)
Cocktail: Bubbling Cocktails

Every mad scientist has tables and shelves full of mysterious bubbling concoctions. Your living room can join in the fun with this mint and kiwi flavored libation from Martha Stewart.

7. Movie: Creature from the Black Lagoon (1954)
Cocktail: Black Lagoon

Celebrate the creature’s emergence from the murky depths with this spooktacular drink that features black licorice ice cubes.

10. Movie: Trick ‘r Treat
Cocktail: Candy Corn Martini

Candy corn is TRADITION, which is why we recommend sipping the grown up version while you watch Sam the burlap-clad murderer go about his grisly business. Sam doesn’t like it when people break tradition…

11. Movie: House of 1000 Corpses
Cocktail: Morgue-a-Rita

There are few morgues big enough to handle what happens in Rob Zombie’s horrific directorial debut, but sipping this gruesome tequila cocktail will help you cope with the body count.

12. Movie: Night of the Living Dead (1968)
Cocktail: The Zombie

George A. Romero was freaking people out with zombies LONG before they were the stuff of prime time TV. You’ll feel like a zombie yourself after sipping this 4-liquor cocktail from the 1930s.

13. Movie: Saw I (2004)
Cocktail: Black Cloud

Say what you will about Saw II through VI, but the first one (celebrating its 10th anniversary this year) was a genre-defining fright fest. The spiraled licorice garnish on this organic and mint flavored cocktail is the perfect nod to Billy the Puppet’s freaky cheeks.

14. Movie: Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974)
Cocktail: Angry Fireball

“The cinnamon whiskey’s bite could make Leatherface cringe,” says Hayley Jensen, beer sommelier of N.Y.C.’s Taproom No. 307. That, combined with Campari and hard cider, leaves a “crisp, refreshing and memorable taste of its own” – one that’s sure to chill you to the bone!

16. Movie: Pet Sematary (1989)
Cocktail: Cemetery Slime Punch

Celebrate the reanimated corpse of Fluffy the Cat with this worm-filled punch. It’s billed as non-alcoholic, but that’s nothing a little vodka can’t fix.

17. Movie: Poltergeist (1982)
Cocktail: Black Magic

Everyone knows that if you mess around with black magic, you’re likely to end up with a house full of naughty spirits. Play it safe by making this deliciously layered cocktail instead.

18. Movie: It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown
Cocktail: Pumpkin Punch

Not every Halloween classic is hell bent on making you pee your pants. Enjoy the timeless adventures of Charlie Brown and the gang while you sip this sweet-and-spicy libation.

19. Movie: The Blair Witch Project (1999)
Cocktail: Triple Black Martini

This freaky film jumpstarted the found footage genre. Almost 100% of the suspense comes from the lighting (or lack thereof), which is why we chose to pair it with the triple black martini.

20. Movie: The Crazies (2010)
Cocktail: Bloody Hot Chocolate

This is one of those rare times that a remake of a Romero movie improves upon the original. Plus you get to gaze upon Timothy Olyphant. Embrace the bloodbath with this twisted hot cocoa.

21. Movie: The Hills Have Eyes (2006)
Cocktail: Death In The Afternoon

It doesn’t matter what time of day it is, the mutants in this remake of Wes Craven’s 1977 film will make you wish for death. Simulate it with this potent two-ingredient cocktail that’s rumored to have been invented by Ernest Hemingway.

22. Movie: Hellraiser (1987)
Cocktail: Rusty Nail

What better way to celebrate a demon/hero with nails in his face than to put one in your own?

23. Movie: Nightmare on Elm Street (1984)
Cocktail: Nightmare on Juniper Street

Complete with a blade-brandishing garnish, we think even Freddy would pause for a sip of this clever gin cocktail.

24. Movie: The Ring (2002)
Cocktail: Black Widow Martini

Never before in human history did badly combed hair seem so terrifying. We think the dangling garnish of this black cocktail mimics the look quite nicely.

25. Movie: The Nightmare Before Christmas
Cocktail: The Oogie Boogie

You could argue that this is a Christmas movie, not a Halloween movie…but then you’d have to wait an extra month to try this delicious drink.

26. Movie: The Shining
Cocktail: The Suffering Bastard
