The 10 Most Gut Wrenching Meals Eaten In Movies


Since it’s right upon us, I thought it might be fun to completely ruin your Thanksgiving this year.

With no further introduction, here are the most disgusting meals consumed by human people in movies. Enjoy!

10. The Live Octopus in Oldboy

Live octopus is actually something people eat, which is why it sort of gets a pass. On the other hand: gross, dude. That shit is alive and wiggling. In fact, why do people eat seafood at all? It’s just big ocean insects living in the world’s piss.

What really drives this scene home is the fact that Choi Min-sik, a Buddhist, actually ate four of those things to get the scene right – praying for each squirmy life he took in the process.


9. Giant Turkey in Honey I Shrunk The Kids


You might be wondering what’s so gross about a giant turkey, but that’s because you haven’t thought it through. It’s not going to be more meat – it’s going to be oddly large meat. Giant bones, large strands of weird texture stringing off of gobs of fat – none of which would make you want to eat the thing.

In fact, imagine eating anything enlarged. You’d get to see all the imperfections that come with it – all the weird textures, blown up. Maybe I’m just a freak, but that sounds like the most disgusting thing ever.


8. Pretty Much Anything Served At The Pressman Hotel in Fight Club


Look, while drinking Brad Pitt’s urine is definitely a life moment very few people can say they have achieved – that’s probably not enough motivation to actually do it. Especially considering that you’d actually be drinking Edward Norton’s – and who wants to do that?

Really, as the film progresses and “Fight Club” swells into “Project Mayhem,” there’s pretty much no eatery in the country that people should be sitting down at. After all, Edward Norton’s pee might be bad – but that’s nothing compared to whatever the lead singer of Live put into that clam chowder.


7. Alien Vomit in Bad Taste

In fairness, we have no idea what alien vomit tastes like. It was green, so maybe it’s actually like that sour apple Squeeze Pop shit that gave us all diabetes as kids. What I’m saying is, never knock something until you try it – and that goes double for anything Peter Jackson vomits out. After all, The Lovely Bones made a shit load of money.
