The Most Horrifying Dinner Parties, From 'Hannibal' to 'Beetlejuice,' ...

The Invitation, The Feast, and The Menu have satiated our craving for more hearty dinner movie with memorable dinner party scenes. However, you're bound to find something here to tantalise those taste buds, whether it's cannibalism, multiple murder, monkey brains, or fetuses in baked goods.

Hannibal (2001)

Clarice Starling, who is now played by Julianne Moore, has become a pariah with the FBI following the killing of a mob mother with a Mac 10 in one hand and a baby in the other, as well as removing the top of Krendlers skull, cutting into the sack that sheathes the brain, and eating small pieces to Hannibal. He pleads with Hannibal to stop what he is doing. Paul is pushed into an adjacent room and covers his

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974)

Marilyn Burns, a poor girl, cannot get a break. On a hot Texas day in 1974, Sally Hardesty (Burns) and a group of friends pick up a hitchhiker. The guy becomes unhinged and begins to behave erratically and violently towards the group. They throw him out, believing this is a form of strangeness that ends the day. It all begins with a chainsaw tragedy, girls strung up on meat hooks, wild chases through

The Last Supper (1995)

A group of leftist house-sharing lefties plans to murder people with right-wing beliefs such as homophobes, racists, and antisemites. At the end of the film, Norman Arbuthnot (Ron Perlman) appears. Not only do they not hate him, but he starts swaying a few of them around to his way of thinking. What they do not know is that he has poisoned their wine, killing them all.

You're Next (2011)

Youre Next, Adam Wingard's underrated 2011 home invasion film, has yet another family sat down to dinner. When pretentious filmmaker Tariq (Ti West) goes to the window to investigate a strange noise, he is skewered with an arrow, right in the eye socket.


Dumplings, a Hong Kong extreme entry film, is adapted loosely from the short film Three...Extremes. Unfortunately, it is a particularly worrisome method of reversing her beauty decline: fetuses in baked goods!

The Celebration (1998)

When a young man of color watches, one of the most horrifying displays of cruelty in The Celebration is when the dinner party starts singing a racist song.


After Kane is released from quarantine, the entire crew is gathered around, bashing, and laughing until he begins to have some sort of seizure. He ends up on the table where a parasitic alien pokes its way straight through his ribcage, covering an already hysterical Veronica Cartwright with blood and gore.

Hereditary (2018)

Before the Ari Asters family's occult horror Hereditary family gathers to eat an uncomfortably passive-aggressive middle-class meal. Son Peter (Alex Woolf) wonders if his mom Annie (Toni Collette) has something on her mind. Annie unleashes all of his pent-up anger and rage, accusing him for his sisters' deaths. Outstanding.

Beetlejuice (1988)

In the afterlife, it's all games and fun until you summon Beetlejuice, and then it's just games. The dinner scene with Delia, Charles Deetz, and their yuppie city pals briefly possessed and performing "Day-O (The Banana Boat)" against their will might be the most family-friendly dinner party on this list.

Killer Joe (2011)

Matthew McConaughey'svolatile character Killer Joe asks the people gathered around the table if they want to say grace. The sly Dottie (Juno Temple)eagerly offers to say it. Joe proposes to Dottie, which her brother Chris opposes, and attacks Joe who beats him without mercy until Dottie pulls out a pistol, accidentally killing Chris. The film abruptly ends.

Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (1984)

Due of the dinner party content, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom were temporarily banned in India. Monkey brains, eyeball soup, and baby snakes slithering out of a knife wound in the belly of their deceased mother. Yuck!

Seven (1995)

The scene where Brad Pitt and Morgan Freeman discover Gluttony at a dinner party is a little optimistic. Readers with a sensitive sense (or anyone who isn't John Wayne Gacy) should carefully examine this crime scene through the wooly veneer of a tranquilizer. John Doe is a serial murderer who murders people who have committed one of the Seven Deadly Sins.

Nightmare on Elm Street Part Five (1989)

Greta's (Erika Anderson) imaginative death is the highlight of Nightmare on Elm Street Part 5: The Dream Child. Greta's snobbish mother has organized a soiree and spared no expense, and she demands that Greta behave herself and at least try eating something. Freddy Krueger (Robert Englund) shows up the second Greta slips off, and he starts dissecting the doll and force-feeding Gre
