Dark Wine and Scary Movies: How to Netflix and Kill this Halloween

It’s the end of October, which means it’s time for some guts, gore, and potential topless scenes in scary movies. Sometimes the crowds and house parties are a bit stressful, so why not cuddle up with someone in the dark over a bottle of blood-red wine and watch a few “scary” movies on your favorite steaming service. I teamed up with Apothic Dark wines to recommend a few scary flicks for Halloween.

  1. Children of the Corn – A bunch of kids in a cult start killing everyone over 18 in their small town.
  2. A Nightmare on Elm’s Street – Don’t go to sleep because a burned, fedora-wearing man with a vintage sweater with kill you in your dreams.
  3. Hellraiser – After losing his body to demons, a sexually deviant man opens a portal to hell when he tampers with a box he bought while abroad and quickly recognizes a pinhead man has plans for us all.
  4. Dead Silence – Love those vintage dolls your grandmother has around the house? Well this movie will make you want to burn them all.
  5. Vampire in Brooklyn – Before dressing up in fat suits, Eddie Murphy came out with this horror movie about a suave, charismatic vampire who you wouldn’t mind biting the sh*t out of you.


This special edition Apothic Dark comes from the Californian wine company, Apothic. This is a seasonal release just in time for Halloween. Intense in chocolate, blueberry, blackberry, and cedar, this wine has a powerful aroma and spicy taste. The blackberry, blueberry, plum and chocolate flavors gives the wine an enjoyable fruity velvety aftertaste. It is a fun and easy going wine for those spooky occasions like the holiday ahead.
