Horror Night #1

It's the season for freaky films and pumpkin spice!  I'm going to share some of my favorite horror films and the food I'm eating.  Why not, right?  Get yourself into the season.

Bison-Pumpkin Chili

1 can Pumpkin
1 can Tomatoes, diced
1 tsp Cumin
2-3 tsp Chili Powder
1 tsp Garlic
1 tsp Cayenne Pepper (more or less for spiciness)
1lb Ground Bison
1/2 Yellow Onion, small

1. Turn your crockpot onto high and add in the pumpkin, tomatoes, cumin, chili powder, and cayenne pepper.  Let this warm up as you get your meat ready.
2. In a frying pan, break up your ground bison into small pieces and begin to brown the meat.
3. Dice up the onion and add this to your meat.  Also, add in the garlic.  Occasionally stir until the meat is browned.
4. When the meat is fully cooked, add it to the crockpot.  Let this cook for 2-4 hours.

Note: Want to add something else to it?  Try adding beans, leeks, turnip cubes, carrot rounds, diced bell pepper, or diced chilis.  I make this chili all the time, but I can't have sweet potato or beans.


5 Movies




1. In The Mouth of Madness
This is a Lovecraft-inspired movie starring Sam Neill.  Need I say more?  Sure.  Remember "Ghostbusters 2" and the bad guy Viggo?  He makes an appearance in the film too.  This is a twisted story about an insurance fraud agent looking for a missing author.  I love this film and I just can't bring myself to really spoil it for anyone.


2. 28 Days Later
A zombie movie that doesn't use the term zombie.  I remember that being a big deal when the film came out.  It's a virus called "rage".  I like the tension in the film and the cast.


3. Mary Reilly
If you like horror-dramas and Victorian settings, then this is a film for you.  It's a Jekyll and Hyde story, but from the housemaid's perspective.  Stars Julia Roberts and John Malkovich.  It's based on the novel of the same title.

4. Invasion of The Body Snatchers (1978)
 Space seeds come to Earth and end up taking over the planet - in a nutshell.  This version of this film stars Donald Sutherland, Jeff Goldblum, Brooke Adams, Veronica Cartwright, and Leonard Nimoy.  It's way better than the cheesier 1950s version.


5.  A Stir of Echoes
Did you know that this is based on a novel written by Richard Matheson from 1958?  Yeah.  I haven't read the novel yet, but I have it in my library.  I'm finishing some books right now, then I'll get to it.  This film stars Kevin Bacon.  Basically, an average guy is hypnotized by his sister-in-law at a party and is told to "have an open mind".  He starts seeing this ghost in his house.  What does he do?  Ends up trying to figure out what the heck this ghost is doing there.  It's really good and the film was absolutely made in the 90s.  LOL  Seriously, some of the clothes *face palm*
