Halloween Movie Marathon Massacre

Live blogging from the 2nd Annual Halloween Movie Marathon Massacre. This event has gotten a little out of control. As of this moment we’ve watched 12 movies straight, starting at around 8 pm last night. It’s now past 6 pm. We’re getting close to 24 hours of Halloween movie madness. So I’m not going to write much because, well, I’m rather sleep deprived and whatever I write will probably sound ridiculous (disclaimer: I have actually slept through part of at least a few movies). Instead I’m just going to show you a few of the treats I made for the event. Above you can see some vanilla cupcakes with orange frosting.

I also made cookies and cream cupcakes and decorated them with crumbled Newman’s O’s. I had intended to put little graham cracker headstones on each but I totally burnt them. They looked even more awesome burnt but were not at all edible.

My favorite treat that I got to make was caramel corn. I used the recipe from The Joy of Vegan Baking. It’s amazing. I can really only make this stuff for special events because I will eat the entire batch.

We also had a veggie hot dog station inspired by The Franken Stand. Sometimes if you can’t get the real thing you just have to make your own. Luckily, they have been at some great events this month, so we get to enjoy them somewhat frequently.

We’re down to five movie watchers, including myself. It’s amazing. The plan is to head to the Cinefamily and catch the double feature of Victims and Don’t Go In the House to finish the extravaganza. I’ll keep you posted.

Movies so far:
Labyrinth
The Brood
I Spit on Your Grave
Poltergeist
Friday the 13th part 4
Sleepaway Camp
Dawn of the Dead (original)
Shaun of the Dead
Lost Boys
Ringu
Necromantic
Suspiria

UPDATE

I finished with:

Victims
Don’t Go in the House

I think that the remaining three watched Close Encounters after that.

So many hours of horror!

    this sounds like the most amazing time EVER!!!!!! 🙂

  2. Everything you guys have put in my mouth tonight has been delicious, Especially the cookies & cream cupcakes. Thanks for not feeding me eyeballs. We are insane.

  3. i think it’s SO RAD that you are live blogging from this event! damn, it sounds like i missed an awesome party. i got home ‘late’ last night just went to bed…however if i would have come to your place, i would have been ‘early’, considering you guys are STILL GOING!

    your treats look delicious…and you write VERY well, considering you have been up for well over 24 hours. holidays rule.

  4. Thanks for the awesome movie party, even though I was only there for a movie and a half plus part of one that we didn’t watch all the way through. You guys are my heros for making it through 24+ hours straight of films. I didn’t try any of the treats (dinner food coma), but they certainly did look cute and delicious!

  5. I don’t know what is more amazing – your marathon, or the cupcakes in the first picture!! Wow, wow, wow. Wow!

  7. I love watching movies. And horror movies, yay!

  11. I think if I watched movies for 24 hours straight I would go insane, yet I oddly want to do it after reading this. Your treats look beautiful and so yummy!
