THEY LIVE while we kick back with a cocktail.

It’s not often one gets to kick back and chat with Rowdy Roddy Piper about his movie role in the classic 1988 flick THEY LIVE, in between him piledriving and hammerlocking his compadres. But he did just that with my Terror Team-mate Brian Solomon from The Vault of Horror. In a rare audio clip, Piper discusses how John Carpenter asked him to play the lead role, and also talks about the legendary fight scene.

You can catch They Live, listen to this clip and hang with The Terror Team this Thursday, September 22 at the historic Avon Theatre in Stamford, Connecticut, where we host the Cult Classics series typically twice a month. It all starts at 9 pm!

What better way to celebrate an evil zomBie-alienesque takeover than with a drink that will bend your mind. This one I’m calling OBEY YOUR THIRST and we do it up in the crypt like this:


2 ounces of Midori

1 ounce of apple vodka

1 ounce of Bailey’s

splash of grenadine

Mix all ingredients in a shaker filled with ice, shake like your life depends on it, and then pour into a rocks glass. Enjoy!

I know I’ll be sipping this delightful concoction while comparing the fight scenes from They Live and South Park’s infamous Cripple Fight scene, won’t you join me? Viva la cocktail and bottoms up!

You think they’re people just like you. You’re wrong. Dead wrong.

Green Aliens, Lance Henriksen and The Vault of Horror

In lieu of Lance Henriksens biography Not Bad for a Human, the blogathon, which ended Sunday and The Vault of Horror’s interview with Mr. Henriksen I have decided to share here in CruellasConcoctions the Green Alien cocktail with all you Crypt Creepers! Of course this a dedication to one of his most notable roles as the android Bishop in the Aliens movies. So sit back, pop in one of your favorite Lance movies and imbibe in a little green alcoholic goodness!


Ingredients for a Green Alien

3 oz Midori Melon Liqueur

1 oz Lemon Juice

1 oz Rose’s Lime juice

Top with equal parts of Sprite and Seltzer

Here’s how we do it up in the Crypt:

In a shaker filled with ice pour the Midori, lemon juice and Rose’s lime juice. Shake and pour in a highball glass filled with ice. Fill with equal parts Sprite and seltzer, garnish with a lime wedge and serve to your ghouls! And as always Viva la Liquor and Bottoms up, Kittens!
