Scary Movie Night
By: Reader's Digest
Invite guests to share a spooky flick to celebrate.
One person's “scary” is another person's “silly,” so it's impossible to
rank movies by their scariness. That said, there are certain movies
that stand the test of time as truly ghastly, shocking, or amusingly
weird. Here are several to consider:
Classics: Dracula, Rosemary's Baby, The Birds, Psycho, The Raven, The Shining, The Omen, The Phantom of the Opera, Invasion of the Body Snatchers, Swamp Thing
Science fiction: Alien, Interview With the Vampire, The Terminator
Contemporary: The Ring, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Halloween, The Blair Witch Project, The Fly, Friday the Thirteenth
Comedy: Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Scary Movie, Ghostbusters, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, An American Werewolf in London, Beetle Juice
The Bride of Frankenstein, Creature from the Black Lagoon, It,
Carrie, Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?, Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde,
Nosferatu, War of the Worlds, The Blob, Abbott and Costello
Meet the Mummy, The Sixth Sense, The Exorcist, Poltergeist
Plan to serve popcorn and beer or sodas with the film and a buffet dinner afterward.
List film possibilities on the invitation and let guests vote for their favorite when they RSVP.
What You'll Need
* A large-screen TV and a DVD player
* Comfortable chairs for all the guests in
the TV room
* A rented or purchased DVD of the top
* Appetizers and Snacks
Decide on whether you intend serious movie viewing, or whether it is all right for people to joke and comment during the viewing. If you think your partygoers might be split on this, then show the same movie in two different rooms and designate one for serious viewers only.
Make sure you have plenty of hot popcorn for the movie. (If it's a big party, you can rent a popcorn cart that keeps hot popcorn coming.) You can buy popcorn bags or boxes from a party store. Let guests add melted butter and/or salt themselves. Provide plenty of napkins.
Keep drinks cold in buckets full of ice or a cooler, so guests can help themselves.
Have a buffet that can be made ahead.
Provide tables and chairs where guests can easily eat their dinner (it's hard to balance a plate in costume).
