For the second day of October, I present a list of some truly disgusting meals in horror movies. By the way, as I’m limiting myself to ten things in these lists I know I’m missing things out. So if you have a personal favourite that hasn’t been mentioned, let me know what it is in the comments!
10 dinners you would want no part of
I’ve rhapsodised about this film before – the image of the rabbit Carole and her sister were supposed to have for dinner slowly decaying over the course of the film perfectly reflects Carole’s crumbling psyche. And it’s super gross. Ever been stuck in a room where something is rotting? Yeah.
2. The Texas Chainsaw Massacre
4. Spider Baby
The Hannibal Lecter guide to seduction: drug your date, then serve up some freshly cooked brains. Really fresh. In fact, the owner of the brain is still alive and also invited to dinner. Oh, and don’t forget to feed some to him as well – it’s only fair.
6. The Lost Boys
In an incredibly elaborate hazing ritual, David gives Michael wine spiked with vamp blood that makes him completely trip out and see all sorts of fun creepy-crawlies masquerading as his Chinese takeout. Maggots, Michael. You’re eating maggots. How do they taste?
7. What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?
8. Theatre of Blood
Possibly the grossest on the list (and that’s saying something), Aunt Mei’s secret to prolonged youth comes in the form of her special home-made dumplings, which have human fetuses as the secret ingredient.
