Happy Halloween: Films for Jackrabbits and Scaredy Cats

I'm a lightweight when it comes to horror. I just saw "The Others" (Nicole Kidman, as a mother of two children allergic to sunlight in a big house in the country) and was legitimately scared just about the whole movie.

Below are my lesser-known horror movie picks for the jackrabbits, scaredy cats and cowardly lions like me.

Repulsion, Roman Polanski, 1965


Rebecca, Alfred Hitchcock, 1941


The Innocents, Jack Clayton, 1961


And just for fun.... the re-cut trailer for the classic "horror" film "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory".


Jackrabbit Sidecar
1 1/2 oz Applejack
3/4 oz Grand Marnier
3/4 oz Lemon
1/2 oz Allspice Syrup
1 oz Apple Cider

Combine all ingredients in a shaker and garnish with aromatic or orange bitters.

Make the Allspice Syrup: use one cup water, one cup sugar and a handful of crushed allspice berries. Bring to a simmer for 5-10 minutes. Let cool and strain.

Scaredy Cat, Looney Tunes, 1948

I have a friend in Sylvester the Cat: "a yellow dog of a cowardy cat"


Happy Halloween!
