The Menu

I wasn’t sure what to expect from “The Menu”. I knew it was about a gourmet meal served by a famous chef, but I had no idea where it would go. It turns out that it is a dark horror/comedy. Ralph Fiennes is the chef and as always he is menacing and charming. Anya Taylor-Joy, as one of the guests, matches his intensity as a guest who was not on the original list. Each course gets more intense. While the guests are bowled over by the food, they get nervous with the accompanying commentary from Fiennes, who everyone just calls “Chef”. His staff are cult-like and totally obedient. The guests are an eclectic group, all who have some connection to the chef, The film kept my interest because I did not know what was going to happen next. The ending is dark and ironic at the same time. Not for everyone’s tastes, this is an adult horror film that will surprise you.
