    Name of this movie?

    Anyone know the name of a movie made in the late 80s: it was a satire on US middle class life/gluttony etc. and had scenes where people were eating each other (like a dinner) - consuming each others naked flesh - all very gross and plenty of latex effects.

    It was not exactly a horror movie and not exactly popular the box office IIRC.

    IMDB is excellent for finding that elusive flick. Not sure which keywords you'd use for this one.

    Casper, I've seen that movie. I believe you're right, although I think it was only one person being eaten.

    Yeah, it was only one person, and I also believe it had a British tone to it. If it is another movie we are talking about, I will have to scour my feeble brain for the answer...after the Red Sox beat the Rays tonight of course!!

    I thought of that (The Cook, the Thief, his Wife and her Lover). It is a movie most famous in my mind for Helen Mirren's sex scenes and full frontal nudity. Extremely hot - and she must have been into her 50's by then.

    But it doesn't really fit the OP's description. Like, only in a very indirect way. They did cook one guy - the "lover" - but this never happened:

    "had scenes where people were eating each other (like a dinner)."

    But maybe OP was remembering the details wrong. It had a fair bit of other gross stuff like when the wife and her lover are hiding in a truck full of rotting meat and fish.

    Definitely British. Directed by Peter Greenaway. Starred Mirren and Michael Gambon and Tim Roth.

    i guess you are the same "lindapret0186" on forums.greekcity.com.au and "solenoid" on digitalspy.co.uk, cause both of those posters had the exact same question posted on those forums.

    was it not "Society" that was mentioned on one of those forums?
