10 Best Food Scenes in Halloween Movies (Slideshow)


10. Killer Tomatoes

Attack of the Killer Tomatoes, a mock horror film, is the ultimate war on food. When life-size tomatoes attack an unsuspecting town, the city streets will run red with... ketchup?

9. Bubbling Brews

It doesn’t get any more classic than The Witch Who Turned Pink. With singing jack-o-lanterns, talking owls, and outdated animation, this amazing cartoon has it all. We especially love the scene when Jennifer the witch is trying to turn herself green again with the help of a food-filled spell.

8. The Stuff

Forget ghosts and ax murders. What you fear could be in your freezer! The Stuff, a cheesy horror movie, explores what happens when ice cream attacks

7. Sleepy Hollow Eats

In the Disney version of the terrifying story of the Headless Horseman, Ichabod Crane must overcome his fears to protect the woman he loves. Though old Ichabod may not be the bravest of men, we do know that the way to his heart is through his stomach. He certainly isn’t shameful when it comes to taking advantage of all his students’ parents by eating their tasty dinners when offered. 

6. Rat Lunch

In the classic film Whatever Happened to Baby Jane, poor Blanche will lose her appetite for lunch for forever. Her evil caretaker serves her a dead rat on a silver platter for her afternoon snack, and Blanche isn’t too happy about it to say the least!

5. Haunted Steak

Watch Poltergeist just once and you will never late-night snack again. When a raw steak comes alive, crawls across your counter, and somehow manages to vomit up its own insides, you’ll consider veganism before you can say boo!

4. Frog’s Breath

In the cult classic The Nightmare Before Christmas, rebel scarecrow doll Sally has one "weapon" to escape from her master: frog’s breath. She spikes his soup with it so he will drift off to sleep, leaving her with the chance to run out and explore her Halloween Town.

3. Hocus Pocus

When the Sanderson sisters are brought back to life by virginal Max lighting the black-flamed candle, havoc is wreaked across Salem. But not without a few laughs and food scenes along the way. Who could forget the embarrassing scene when Max’s little sister Dani calls her brother out at his crush’s house over a "jackpot" of candy? Or when Mary thinks a Clark Bar is the finger of a man named Clark? 

2. Brain on the Brain

In Silence of the Lambs, we follow maniac and brilliant cannibal Hannibal Lecter as he devours his way through victims. Who could ever forget the most gruesome eating scene where Lecter forces his victim to eat his own brain? 

1. The Great Pumpkin

We probably don’t need to re-hash the details of this Halloween special. After all, it is as iconic as the holiday itself — from the gang trick-or-treating to Linus and Sally spending the whole night in a pumpkin patch waiting for The Great Pumpkin, this Halloween special is one we’ll remember forever.
