The air is crisp, the leaves are turning, and pumpkin spice is back - it's time for a cozy fall movie night at home...

Things look different this year but that doesn't mean that we can't embrace the season we're in and have some fun. What says fall more than a good movie, fresh baked goods, cooler weather, and an early sunset? In this blog, you'll find everything that you need to have the perfect fall movie night at home.

Troll 2

With Halloween right around the corner, how would you like to enjoy a semi-scary movie that stars a Lake Martin local?

Alexander City resident George Hardy starred in Troll 2, a PG-13 campy film about, you guessed it, trolls. The film has become a cult classic in cinema circles as a “so bad it’s good” type of movie. 

In fact, it was even the subject of a documentary, “Best Worst Movie.” 

George didn’t quit his day job. He is a dentist by day and a really nice guy. He’s even been invited to some conferences!

So sit back and enjoy!


That smell and taste like fall

Setting the Scene

The cozier the better

Make a Blanket Fort

There's nothing cozier than piling up all of your blankets into the ultimate blanket fort. Grab the dining room chairs, use your couch cushions, and even hang some string lights inside to create the perfect atmosphere to settle in and watch your favorite fall movie. 

Dust-Off the Fireplace

We know that your fireplace hasn't gotten much use since the winter but now is the perfect time to dust it off and grab some firewood. If the temperature is still a bit high, you may want to turn down the thermostat for the evening and settle in.

Pumpkin Carving

Take your fall movie night to the next level and carve some pumpkins first. You won't be able to avoid the fall feeling when there's a candle flickering in your pumpkin and there's homemade pumpkin crisp baking in the oven. 

Fruit Picking

Finding fun activities to do outside is more important than ever so why not find a local place to pick fruit? If you're picking apples, bring them home and make those apple butter pancakes, but if you're picking another type of fruit simply Google a recipe to include those fresh-picked goods!
