What to Watch After…The Menu

The Menu - So The Theory Goes

Like other socially aware horror comedies before it, The Menu offers its audience a brilliantly twisted attack on the elite of society. If you enjoyed the thrills, dark humour, and culinary artistry of Mark Mylod‘s The Menu, then read on… This article will highlight other film treats you might like:

The Invitation

The Invitation is a good next choice if you like the suspense elements of The Menu. Inspired by the film starring Anna Taylor-Joy, The Invitation follows the events leading up to and including a dinner party that ends in murder. This time, Will (Logan Marshall-Green) and his ex-wife (Tammy Blanchard) is hosting dinner. After their son’s death, Will and Eden quickly divorce, and the audience learns of this fact. The Invitation, directed by Karyn Kusama, is an unnerving, nail-biting experience.

Fresh

The 2022 blockbuster Fresh follows a couple who meet cute at a grocery shop before the woman discovers that he is a dangerous stalker. Like many of the audience members, Noa (Daisy Edgar-Jones) is sick of thinking about dating apps and doesn’t want to go on another boring date. Steve (Sebastian Stan) appears to be a ray of hope, but there is more to the story.

Director Fruit Chen and writer Lilian Lee Pik-Wah teamed up to create the short film Dumplings for Three…Extremes, and now they’ve published a feature-length adaptation of the tragic story. Mrs. Li, portrayed by Miriam Chin Wah Yeung, is an old actress who desperately wants her philandering husband (Tony Leung Ka Fai) to find her beautiful. Mrs. Li stumbles onto a dumpling business run by Aunt Mei (Bai Ling), a former gynaecologist whose dumplings have the reputation of reviving the owner’s youthful appearance. Mrs. Li’s fixation with regaining her youth is fascinating to observe.
