The Menu: Anya Taylor-Joy’s New Horror Movie Is A Perfect Recipe Of Comedy And Horror

ytsfreeSeptember 12, 2022

It’s a great time to be a horror fan. The genre has been thriving for a number of years now, resulting in some of the best horror movies returning to theaters. But the genre is also known for innovation, and one highly anticipated upcoming movie is Mark Mylod’s The Menu, starring The Queen’s Gambit actress Anya Taylor-Joy. And the new horror movie is a perfect recipe of comedy and horror.

While the horror genre is known for blood and guts, some of my favorite entries also feature moments of levity. This includes classics like Scream and recent additions like Ready or Not. The Menu continues this tradition, and ends up being a fun, wild ride. I had the privilege of seeing an advanced screening at the Toronto International Film Festival, and it has quickly become one of my favorite projects I’ve seen at this year’s fest.
