The Menu is a horror comedy starring Anya Taylor-Joy, Nicholas Hoult, and Ralph Fiennes. In the film, a young couple travel to a remote island to eat at an exclusive restaurant where the chef has prepared a lavish menu … with some shocking surprises. The Menu is another prime example of prestige horror’s new wave with an undercurrent of social satire. Horror used to be frowned on in film as either camp or ghoulish exploitation. Now, with mainstream movies becoming increasingly “palatable,” horror has become the zone for serious and subversive storytelling.
