Howl at the Moon (or just have a party)
October 27, 2009 Bill Crotty
Did you know that today is National Howl at the Moon Night? In honor of this unique holiday, grab a few friends and host a classic werewolf movie marathon. (Actual howling is optional.)
This special occasion also marks the perfect opportunity to begin celebrating Halloween a little early. Put up some party decorations and let the fun begin!
Have everyone prep their Netflix lists to include classics like An American Werewolf in Paris, Teen Wolf and Van Helsing, or go with less well known titles like Silver Bullet (based on the Stephen King novella Cycle of the Werewolf) or The Company of Wolves, a 1984 gothic-horror classic. For some gore and surprising plot twists, consider the French horror flick The Brotherhood of the Wolf.
What to serve at a werewolf marathon? Half-moon cookies would make the perfect snack. Or, put some hair on your guests' chests with a werewolf cocktail. Mix equal parts drambouie and whiskey and shake with ice. Strain before serving. Of course, you could always hunt up some old-school moonshine for a spot-on drink.
