The trailer for “The Menu” was a surprising black comedy and horror mash-up that was hard to read. It was tough to tell if it was a genuinely smart satire, a corny genre exercise, or a potential guilty pleasure. Maybe a little of all. But I really did like what I saw, and the early reaction from its premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival have made it sound even more tasty. Now Searchlight Pictures has released the new poster which is as odd as the movie sounds. It’s also just as alluring. What do you think?

I hope this is good. I’m always up for some Ralph Fiennes
I liked Anya Taylor-Joy in The Queen’s Gambit, but that frozen flat affect with doe eyes is starting to grate on me bigtime. I’ll give it a watch when it’s released to DVD/streaming.
Fiennes is the big attraction for me. I’ve always enjoyed his work.
His brother is a good actor also. I am in the middle of S4 of The Handmaid’s Tale and he’s a central figure in it.
He sure is.
Yeah, I might see this. I love Anya Taylor-Joy and Ralph Fiennes.
Fiennes is always good. He looks….maniacal in this one.
