Genre: Horror, Thriller & Dark Comedy

Where To Watch: Fubo &  DirecTV

In the movie “Ready Or Not,” Grace Le Domas can tell you that sometimes marrying into a wealthy family can become a life risk and having to go through many obstacles.

Still, this thought never came into her mind that she could be forced to play an unexpected game after her reception gets over, a game of hide and seek where every family member would hunt her.

The movie also creates an atmosphere that is too confusing as Grace doesn’t know whether to trust her newly married husband.

This movie will primarily attract the fans of “The Menu” as both films showcase that the main characters are brought somewhere unusual by the person they love. In both cases, the dinner or wedding turns into something more horrible than they have ever expected.

Genre: Horror, Comedy, Slasher, Comedy Horror, Dark Comedy & Thriller

Where To Watch: Amazon Prime Video

It is a movie in which a group of wealthy friends (20-something) plans a party in a remote mansion in the countryside, “Bodies Bodies Bodies” is a comedy murder mystery that looks into the fact that whether this social group does like each other or not.

As one person dies, the rest try to figure out who did it by scrambling. All the people start insulting each other and share their innermost and darkest thoughts, which they usually keep to themselves.

Just as “The Menu” becomes a horrific disaster, similarly “Bodies Bodies Bodies” turns out to be a fight for survival at a regular friends party.

The two movies try to maintain a sense of humor and have many words for people with wealth and privilege.

Director Name: Lee Haven Jones

Genre: Horror & Fantasy

Where To Watch: Hulu

This movie is known to be one of the best horror movies, which came in 2021 though it didn’t get as much attention from the audience as others. “The Feast” occurs at a gorgeous mansion located in Wales.

Two people are invited for dinner by a wealthy family, and before the main event happens, each family member starts acting strangely.

Like “The Menu,” “The Feast” is also a very surprising movie, and its ending is extremely dark as the characters are not the person they seem to be.

The movie, on its own, is portrayed in a very beautiful place, and after the audience finishes watching the movie, the characters can haunt them. Especially this movie will attract horror fans who want a film with an unexpected ending.

Director: Jonathan Levine

Genre: Horror, Slasher, Mystery & Thriller

Where To Watch: RedBox

Plenty of slasher movies on parties, social politics, and popularity are present in high school. 

While they can fuse, All The Boys Love Mandy Lane shows the main character as going to a pool party planned by a classmate, and it has a brilliant storyline that is difficult to predict.

In this movie, the characters don’t even know what is going on, and the movie also has an ending with a twist. It’s just like Margot in The Menu attending the meal in a fancy restaurant and doesn’t know what’s going on.

With plenty of slashers having a similar storyline and ending up similarly, it’s quite interesting to see a movie that takes a different approach.

Would You Rather (2012)

Director: David Guy Levy

Genre:  Horror & Thriller

Where To Watch: AMC+ & Tubi

In the film “Would You Rather,” the character Iris wants to pay for Raleigh’s (her brother’s) cancer treatment.

To earn money, she plays a fearful game by attending a gathering with the hopes of winning a lot of cash to help her brother. It is a breathtaking film, and other than any horror movie characters, Iris has even more at stake.

The movie is filled with plenty of tense moments, and it’s too difficult for the audience to assume whether Iris will be able to go through it, as the game is not for people with weak hearts, and it is much more horrible than she would have ever expected.

Secondly, “Would You Rather” is too much more emotional than “ The Menu,” and it’s horrific to watch what Iris is going to do.
