Nothing beats a thrilling horror film when the focus is on food, mystery and gore. There are timeless classics and more recent releases featuring grotesque dinner parties, but all involve guests who are subject to more than they bargained for. A good way to enjoy these thrillers is with a few friends, an abundance of comfort food and dimmed lighting. Or, if you are brave enough, flick one on alone, but you might go to bed with one eye open.
10. THE INVITATION
Released in early 2016 and directed by Karyn Kusama, The Invitation stars Logan Marshall-Green as Will, and Emayatzy Corinealdi as his girlfriend, Kira. The two attend a dinner party hosted by Will’s ex-wife, Eden, after she and husband, David return from a trip to Mexico. The guests provide an eerie sense of fear, and the pinnacle of the evening takes place when the hosts bring out a video memoir of their Mexican adventure. It is filled with action right through dinner being served.
