Hi there, I just stumbled upon your site after visiting The Dreamin’ Demon, and I am so glad I found you, perhaps you can help me figure out what movie it was that traumatized me as a kid. It’s a movie about a cannibalistic family living in the suburbs. It was made in the ’80s, possibly early ’90s, and it was a horror/comedy type movie. If memory serves me right the dad wore a pair of thick black horn-rimmed glasses.
The scene in the movie that freaked me out was when the family was all sitting down at the table sharing a meal, and one of the kids got into an argument with the dad, and the kid stabbed the dad in the leg (or hand) with a fork (or butter knife). I remember seeing this movie as a young child, and I am 27 years old now. This scene still sticks with me, and for the life of me I cannot remember the title of the movie. Can you help me??
Thanks so much!

UNK SEZ: AUNT JOHN got this one right off the bat! The horn-rimmed glasses and cannibal parents made him think of 1989’s PARENTS. Check out the trailer HERE and below I found a classic clip of SISKEL & EBERT discussing and disagreeing about the film! Thanks Lauren and thanks to DREAMIN’ DEMON for sending you our way!
