Horror Movies on a Stormy Night
Do you have a stormy night? Or do you have a strobe that imitates lightning? Well, you might want to set the atmosphere for an evening of stormy horror movies. Here's my recommendations -
Start the atmosphere with candles and consider a few cheap pumpkin lightning lights in areas of the room to give a creepy effect. If you have tall shelves, put them up high so they flash on the ceiling.
I think either sherry or port is a great accompaniment to the movie watching of this genre, perhaps even some little tea sandwiches.
Use some pumpernickel or white bread for the sandwiches, remove the crusts, cut into triangles.
Cucumber thin slices with ranch dressing.
Deviled Ham spread and cream cheese.
Pimento cheese spread.
Cream cheese with chives and smoked salmon
