It's easy to fall back on your fifth Hocus Pocus Halloween party in a row, but this year, ditch witches for other horror and sci-fi fun. To help narrow down the genre's options, we've picked five TV shows for inspiration. How about a Stranger Things-themed bash featuring Eleven's favorite food — waffles , pictured above, that you can make in less than 30 minutes — or a Walking Dead party where you serve a zombie cocktail?
Check out more Halloween recipes and ideas below.

The X-Files: Mini Pizzas
