We received a review copy of The Strangers: Prey At Night to help with creating our Total Eclipse Cookies.
It has been a hot minute since we’ve shared a new horror recipe with you! To be honest, most of them are going into our upcomnge-book cookbook, Nightmares and Noms: The Unofficial Horror Cookbook. However, when we were asked to create a new recipe for The Strangers: Prey at Night we just had to say yes! If you haven’t seen the film, our Total Eclipse Cookies may be a little confusing but rest assured, they totally make sense!
In The Strangers: Prey at Night, “a family’s road trip takes a dangerous turn when they arrive at a secluded mobile home park to stay with relatives and find it mysteriously deserted. Under the cover of darkness, three masked psychopaths pay them a visit to test the family’s every limit as they struggle to survive. Johannes Roberts, whose shark diving thriller 47 Meters Down was a smash hit, directs this horror film featuring Christina Hendricks (“Mad Men”), Bailee Madison (Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark), Martin Henderson (The Ring), and Lewis Pullman (Battle of the Sexes).”
