Martha Stewart's Favorite Halloween Movie Is A Foodie Nightmare

What kind of horror flick do you think Martha Stewart would like? On the holiday special "Snoop & Martha's Very Tasty Halloween," which premiered on Peacock last week, Snoop Dogg shared that his favorite scary movie features the infamous Jason Vorhees. The third installment of the "Friday the 13th" franchise in particular caught Snoop's attention: "Part 3 in 3D."

"When Jason shot that thing across the room and it came directly in the camera to my eyes, I was so shook," Snoop said. "Friday the 13th" wasn't Stewart's cup of tea, however. Given her area of expertise, maybe Martha would like something with a foodie theme. Something in the zombie genre, perhaps, given the undead's well-known hunger for human brains (via Today I Found Out)? Nah, zombies wouldn't know how to begin to set a table properly for a formal dinner party. Hannibal Lecter, on the other hand — there's a horror villain Stewart can relate to. "I like really scary movies that are realistic, like Hannibal Lecter," she told Snoop Dogg on "Snoop and Martha's Very Tasty Halloween."

What would Hannibal Lecter serve Martha Stewart for dinner?

"Hannibal Lecter" doesn't refer to one movie in particular, since no film has that exact title. But it does describe a franchise with a very specific theme that's not completely unrelated to Martha Stewart's body of work: a highly cultured gourmet who, oh by the way, happens to be a cannibal. In the most acclaimed movie in the Hannibal Lecter series, "Silence of the Lambs," Anthony Hopkins' Hannibal describes one of most widely recognized dishes in horror cinema: "I ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice Chianti" (via Independent).

The Hannibal universe hit the foodie sweet spot when Lecter got his own TV series, NBC's "Hannibal." Ranker called it "as much a cooking show as anything on the Food Network." The show hired a professional food designer who came up with dishes that would probably appeal even to ultimate dinner host Martha Stewart: clay-roasted meat wrapped in prosciutto and lotus leaves, mushroom and spinach-stuffed heart, and ossobuco with a certain veal substitute.

Hannibal Lecter should be warned if he ever decides to have Martha Stewart over for dinner (as a guest, of course). Her website reports that Stewart eats a lot less meat these days. Has anyone tried the Impossible Liver?
