To kick-off the scariest week of the year and to gear up for our 1st ever, BigBite Halloween Bash on November 2nd at Board Walk Bar, we have decided to share some of our spooky film foods inspired by our favorite Halloween movies!
Today we pay homage to Steven Spielberg’s 1980’s horror film classic – Poltergeist. “It’s here”… the PoltergICED TEA!
Synopsis: In her family’s suburban home, ghosts begin communicating with five-year-old Carol Anne through a dead channel on the television. At first seeming like harmless ghosts, they play tricks and amuse the family. It is not for long when the mysterious beings use the television as their portal to enter the house and finally abduct Carol Anne. As her desperate family tries to rescue the little girl, they are terrorized by the ghosts and their demonic leader.
-Wave Vodka – yup, Wave Vodka
-Arizona Iced Tea
Mix equal portions of Wave Vodka and Arizona Iced Tea. Add a splash of Aperol. Serve over polter-ice.
1. The Poltergeist franchise is believed to be cursed due to the premature deaths of several people associated with the film. The production used real human skeletons when filming the swimming pool scene which led many to believe the “curse” on the film series was because of using those skeletons.
2. Drew Barrymore took part in the audition for Annes role, then she got the role of Gertie in the E.T.
3. The roaring of the MGM lion was originally the sound of the poltergeist that attacked the home of the main heroes.
4. Spielberg worked on E.T. and Poltergeist at the same time.
5. In the scene where the clown was trying to strangle Robbie – the boy really couldn’t breathe, but the filming crew thought that he was acting. After his face became blue, Spielberg realized that it was real and saved him from death.
5. Body Count: 0
Best Food Scene: The infamous kitchen scene with the possessed t-bone steak!
