简介： The film opens with a narrated disclaimer over footage of an opening coffin. The narrator explains that the film's climax is so terrifying that it may kill the viewer, and reassures the audience that if they die of fright while watching the film, they will receive a free burial service, and it closes on the casket which has a card inside reading "Reserved for You." Newlyweds Jenni (Peggy Webber) and Eric (John Hudson) move into Eric's palatial country home. Jenni is Eric's second wife; his first wife Marion died when she accidentally slipped and hit her head on the edge of a decorative pond on the estate. At the home they meet Eric's friends, the Reverend Snow (Russ Conway) and his wife (Toni Johnson), as well as Mickey (Alex Nicol), the developmentally disabled gardener. Eric privately mentions to the Snows that Jenni spent time in an asylum following the sudden death of both her parents, and Mrs. Snow reveals that Jenni is very wealthy. Jenni is disturbed both by Mickey's belief that Marion's ghost wanders the estate and by Marion's self-portrait inside the house, which Jenni believes resembles her mother. When she begins to hear unexplained screaming noises and see skulls around her house, she believes that Marion is haunting her. Though Eric speculates to Jenni that Mickey, who was a childhood friend of Marion and thus dislikes Jenni, may be behind the trickery, Jenni worries that she is going insane. Eric then suggests to remove Marion's self-portrait from the home. Eric and Jenni take the painting outside and burn it. While they clean up the remains of the painting, a skull emerges from the ashes. While Jenni panics at the sight of the skull, Eric denies that the skull is there. Jenni faints and Eric withdraws the skull and hides it, revealing that he was responsible for the trickery all along in an effort to get hold of her wealth. Believing she has finally lost her sanity, Jenni resolves to be committed. She tells Eric that the entire property will be meticulously searched for the skull as a last resort. Before Eric can retrieve it, Mickey secretly steals the skull and brings it to the Reverend, revealing Eric's plans. That night, Eric prepares to murder Jenni and stage it as a suicide. Jenni sees Marion's ghost in Mickey's greenhouse and flees back to the house. When she enters, Eric begins throttling her. The ghost then appears and chases Eric outside and about the property; it finally corners and attacks him, drowning him in the decorative pond. After Jenni regains consciousness, the Snows arrive. Mrs. Snow comforts a hysterical Jenni and the Reverend discovers Eric's body in the pond. Some undisclosed time later, Jenni and the Snows depart from the house. Reverend Snow declares whether or not Marion's death was an accident will remain a mystery.
怪谈晚餐：恐怖故事集 她来到了那个颇有名气的餐厅，大厅中央放着一个扭曲的蜡像，形态奇特，黑暗而森林般的氛围扑面而来。侍者将她引到一间狭小的包房，墙上挂着陈旧的镜子，看不清自己的面容。她扪心自问，为什么一个这么阴森的地方还会有人去用餐呢？ 她独自在桌上等了好一会儿，终于等来了那位带她来的侍者，把菜单递给了她。这里的菜单，竟然只有一样菜品。她疑惑地询问道，“难道这里只有这一道菜吗？” 侍者沉默了一会，开口说道，“其实，这里就是因为这道菜才被众人所知晓的。贵宾，要尝尝吗？”他的语气有些诡异。 她想了想，点了这个菜名。不一会儿，她的餐盘端上来了。满满一盘，她舀起一勺品尝。这一口下肚，她却瞬间感到，自己的喉咙很痒。她大声咳嗽，脖子却像被什么东西勒住了一般。她挣扎着站起身，感到眼前晕眩。侍者看见她的情况，忙拨打了急救电话。 医生打开她的嘴，震惊地发现，在她的舌头上竟然缠绕着一只小蛇。原来，这道著名的菜品，是以蛇为主料调制的。幸好医生及时施救，她终于脱离了危险。她沉默了一会儿，望着几乎咬掉了自己舌头的菜品，心中对这样让人饮鸩止渴的恶意深感震惊。 她走出了餐厅，回头看着那扭曲的蜡像，再一次感叹：人类饮食文化的可怕，尤其是当它有了恶意。
