You say the latest mainstream romantic blockbuster is not going to suit your home-theater hunger this evening? You say you want a movie that depicts humans eating other humans? Yes, you did. I heard you! Look no further than here. Our expert panel of film critics, screenwriters, and anthropophagi has assembled the top choices in the genre for your reference.

1. Still Alive- Because We Eat People (60)

Some said a sequel to Alive could not be undertaken since the stranded party was rescued at the end of the first movie. But what happens when people with a taste for human flesh return to society? Well, it turns out that they live, thrive and survive-still alive, and still eating other people. First they pretend they're still stranded: One character locks herself in her own car with a colleague, and eats him. Another character reverts to cannibalism in a grocery store line. Later, they all just come out of the "cannibal closet," and chow down on a high-school wrestling team. (Shouldn't this one also be listed under "Most Reprehensible Comedies"?)

And when you get through watching those, try: How Tasty Was My Little Frenchman, Parents, Delicatessen, I Dismember Mama, The Donner Party Parties Down! and Cannibal! The Musical.
