8 Gastro Horror Delights Playing at Chattanooga Film Fest 2024

We’re only a few months away from my favorite time of year! That’s right, it’s time to head back to Cinema Summer Camp aka Chattanooga Film Festival in June! I thought it would be fun to round up some of the programming I’m especially excited about, all of which is virtual!

Cannibal Mukbang

Of course, the programming I am thrilled to share is all gastro horror or gastro horror adjacent. From cannibal mukbangs to James Beard Award-winning chefs, there is something for every palette.

  • Butterscotch A young bully bites off more than he can chew when he messes with the wrong old man in a nursing home.
  • Cannibal Mukbang An introverted nerd finds himself dangerously deep inside the crazy world of mukbanging after he falls head over heels for a mysterious woman.
  • Good Girls Get Fed Held under surveillance, three female strangers are forced to perform twisted challenges for food as failures mount and their secret escape plan is thrust into peril.
  • Gum An obsessive gum chewer works through the night to meet a deadline. As he chews…sinister things begin to happen.
  • Hot Soda Outraged over the approval to double the fracking operations devastating her hometown, a young woman is forced by her sick father to serve the fracking company’s CEO when he dines at their failing restaurant. (this one is less horror but still gastro themed)
  • Madame Hattori’s Izakaya Madame Hattori’s Izakaya is a thriller short film about a renowned chef and the twisted evening of her coveted private dinner.

  • The Thaw In 19th century Vermont, a young woman’s parents drink sleeping tea in order to survive the harsh winter, but an early thaw leads to horrifying results.
  • Two Women Make a Lunch Plans Two women—who have neither seen nor heard from one another in quite some time—run into each other while out and about and make a plan to get lunch sometime in the future.
