Martha Stewart. And you've read the opening hype in New York. But you've never seen Mission Chinese Food quite like this. Hey, you know you've hit the big time when someone makes a slasher movie devoted to you.
As far we can tell, this creepy short film shot on location at Danny Bowien's cult Formica palace (aka Lung Shan Restaurant) is only tangentially related to cooking, but it does have a few great lines, such as, "Suppose a tortured animal tastes better." Our favorite, though (and the only one in English), is in the post-massacre scene when the blood-soaked girlfriend fingers the dull blunt knife and asks nonchalantly, "So do you prefer cook or chef?"
Warning: this is movie is no Eat, Drink, Man, Woman. Expect graphic images not appropriate for children. Click past the jump to watch.
