Horror Night #2

Today one of the dogs was put down and I feel terrible.  It's also the 13th of the month which means that it's Labyrinth Watching Day for all of us Labyrinth-dorks.  Despite this, I'm posting another horror night post.

RIP Neit.  You were a good dog.  He passed at 13 years old.

Since I can't have pie crust...#paleo

Makes 1 10oz ramekin serving

3 Egg Yolks
1 Egg White
1/4 cup Coconut Milk, canned
1 TBSP Honey or Agave
1/2 tsp Vanilla
1.33 oz box Raisins
1-2 TBSP Walnuts, chopped
Spices: Ginger, Cinnamon, Clove, Allspice

1. Preheat oven to 350F.
2. In a bowl, whisk the egg yolks, egg white, coconut milk, honey, and vanilla.  Add in your Raisins, Walnuts, and spices.  Your spices should equal approximately 1/2 to 1 tsp of total spice.
3. Pour your mixture into a 10oz ramekin.
4. Bake for 30 minutes.

This isn't a very sweet custard because the raisins give you a burst of sweetness.  Eat it hot.  Goes well with strong tea or coffee.

5 Horror Movies

1. Bram Stoker's Dracula
When I wrote my history thesis (on Vlad Dracula) I watched this film SOOOOO many times.  I love it.  If you want a sexy Dracula film with a killer score, awesome actors (with a "good try" for Keanu), and incredible costumes, this is it.  Hands down.  Romantic horror.

2. The Fog
This is a great film about a haunted fog.  I recommend the original version, but the newer version is just as good.  I guess it just depends on which actors you prefer.  A little coastal town with a black spot in the town history gets a little payback from some spooky fog.

3. The Wolfman (2010)
I love it when the classics are remade well.  This film got lost in the theaters when it was released, but it is a gem! Benicio del Toro as Lawrence Talbot and Anthony Hopkins as his father.  If you have passed this film over, give it a watch.

4. The Last Man on Earth (1964)
The handsome Vincent Price stars in this film.  A virus infects humanity, changing people into...something else.  Not a zombie film.  This has been remade a bunch of times with titles like 'Omega Man' and 'I Am Legend' (which is the title of the novel by Richard Matheson).

5. Crimson Peak
Okay Hiddle-boners, this one is for you.  Crimson Peak is a delightful horror film set in the Victorian era.  It involves a psychic girl, some ghosts, and even some cold blooded murder.  The design work for this film is excellent!
