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 (behind the Piazza, next to North Shore Pool Club), we have decided to share some of our spooky film foods inspired by our favorite Halloween movies!
Today we pay homage to the slasher king – Wes Craven and his 2006 action horror film The Hills Have Eyes.
Synopsis: A family is taking a cross-country road trip when their trailer breaks down, leaving them stranded in the desert of New Mexico. There, they find themselves under attack by the savage “hill people,” who were deformed by radiation during nuclear testing.
-Pepperidge Farms soft baked sugar cookies OR Anna’s ginger crisps
-Vanilla ice cream
-Pumpkin pie spice
Let ice cream soften. Mix in pumpkin pie spice to taste. Spread ice cream on cookies and freeze immediately until hard (about an hour).
Interesting Movie Facts:
1. This movie is a remake of Wes Craven‘s 1977 film The Hills Have Eyes.
2. Originally, the film was given an X-rating which would have relegated it to the porno circuit and severely hurt the box-office returns. Wes Craven cut the film enough to secure an R rating. The original director’s cut is thought to be no longer in existence.
3. For the scene where the feral family is eating Bob, the actors were actually eating a leg of lamb roast (yum).
4. Body count: 17
