Writer Will Tracy, who counts shows like “Last Week Tonight” and “Succession” among his credits on IMDB, was on his honeymoon in Norway when he started exploring the best options for dinner as a certified foodie. What he discovered was a private dining location on an island where a boat was required to pick you up and drop you off for a five-hour experience where the chef and staff prepared an elaborate meal for an exclusive set of clientele. That was all the inspiration Tracy needed to return to New York and seek out his friend Seth Reiss to explore transforming this idea into an actual film that dissected the elite world of overpriced gourmet food. During the writing process, Tracy and Reiss actually started imagining Ralph Fiennes in the lead role as the eccentric chef that sits at the center of their dark-horror comedy but the pair were even more stunned when the actor actually agreed to do the part. The finished product centers around a group of 1-percenters who pay to have the ultimate eating experience on a private island with a world class chef but they soon find out that what they're being fed is far more bitter than any dish that's being served…In the latest episode of Rewind of the Living Dead, we're going to clear our palettes and try to figure out the theme for the evening as we review the 2022 film “The Menu”…
