Nerdie Foodie: Classic Horror Edition

Editor’s Note (October 2020): This post has been updated with working links. All previous recipes that were originally included in this post that currently are not available for viewing have been removed and replaced with new recipes.

Hello Foodies! And welcome to another horror-filled post as we wrap up Classic Horror week here at NC. Now I must admit, I am not a horror/thriller movie fan, so this week I had to have some help from the rest of the NC gals (thank you ladies!). But I hope you all enjoy what I have dug up from the graves. Let’s get started!

Freddy Kruger

Nightmare on Elm St is a horror movie I have never seen, but I have seen the character Freddy Kruger in pictures. See? Iconic. Even to the non-horror movie fan. Geeks Who Eat (one of our favourite go-to nerd-inspired recipe developer blogs here on Nerdie Foodie) created this boozy appetizer pairing for those Freddy Kruger fans! Check out the recipes for both the cocktail and appy here! It will keep you up all night long.

Jason Voorhees

Of course, how can you have Freddy but not Jason (from “Friday the 13th)? We are still on the booze train with this tasty cocktail! Secret of the Booze (from Agressive Comix) share with us this delightful cocktail drink called Camp Crystal Lake that requires a little bit of theatrics! Check out the mixology tutorial below!



Pinhead from Hellraiser is probably one of the iconic horror characters that I didn’t know about until this week. This slightly creepy, yet super simple pizza recipe is from none other than Geeks Who Eat! Check out their recipe here and see how you can add the chains for that extra creep factor!

Pennywise the Clown

And how can we not include Pennywise the Clown from the movie “IT”? Horrifyingly creepy, these artistic cupcakes by Jen (from A Magical Mess) are awe-inspiring! If you are the creative type, this cupcake tutorial is for you!  Check out the recipe and tutorial here!

Swamp Thing

Now it’s hard to find actual food sculptures of Swamp Thing (although I’m sure they’re out there somewhere). So this time around, it’s more of the inspiration of the Swamp Thing by Sheryl (from Lady Behind the Curtain). Check out this awesome swampified cupcake here – swamp scum and all!

Frankenstein and Bride of Frankenstein

And finally to round things off, of course, as always, we’re back to the drinks! You should always have that nice balance between dessert and drinks. So to celebrate the icon of Frankenstein and his bride, I have found a few that I could not decide on which one to leave out. So you get to see all of them!

Franken Frappuccino

First up is for all the Starbucks lovers out there! Straight from the Starbucks Secret Menu, check out the Franken Frappuccino this Halloween! For the ordering directions, check it out here!

The Frankenstein Drink

This delightfully green cocktail is constructed with apple and melon liquors. If you love a fruity drink, Nellie (from Brooklyn Active Mama) shares with us her recipe here!

PS: You can also make this drink for Frankenstein Day (the last Friday of October).

The Bride of Frankenstein

And last but not least, the Bride of Frankenstein. A vanilla blackberry champagne creation by Shanna (from Pineapple and Coconut), that you can make with or without dry ice for that extra touch of classy spooky. Check out the recipe here!

There you have it! Appies, cupcakes, pizza and drinks – who could ask for more?

Till next time,

Happy Friday!
