Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Michael Costello
Paul Bartel's black comedy about a middle-class couple who want to open a restaurant has become a cult classic. Bartel and Mary Woronov play a staid couple who formulate a plan to murder and rob "swingers" to finance their dream of opening a gourmet restaurant. Bartel, who dealt in black comedy long before it became fashionable, has created an oddly affectionate satire of this Moral Majority couple, whose righteousness is concealed behind anonymous polyester surfaces, and are literally dubbed the Blands. Although they believe that the "swingers," i.e. anyone single who is having sex, deserve to die for their terrible transgressions, they're so humane toward their victims that they evoke especially unctuous undertakers. Mary Woronov, a fixture of Warhol's Factory in the '60s, and someone whose mien always suggested the unspeakable, is a witty choice as the homicidal wife, and Bartel adopts the role of tract-house suburbanite with eerie aplomb.

    This is a magnificent work by Paul Bartel. It's hard to believe

    This is a magnificent work by Paul Bartel. It's hard to believe that another viewed was bored by the method of killing (the frying pan), and would have liked it better "if Paul killed the victims in different ways." As if the method of murder had anything to do with the black comedy itself.
    "Eating Raoul" is a thinking-person's satire.
    If the "method" of killing is your main concern, you should be watching "Friday the 13th" rip-offs.

    Not very good

    This is a movie that is very boring to watch. It was very painful for me to get through the entire film, but somehow, I got through it. I think the only thing that got me through it was the thought of something interesting actually happening. I got my hopes us and they were shot down. This is a boring movie about a couple who's hunger for money to run a high-class restaurant drives them to killing kinky people and robbing them of everything they have. I thought the concept of the movie was pretty interesting, but the repetitiveness of the movie drags its potential way down. It would have been nice if Paul killed the victims in different ways than just clocking them in the head with a frying pan. The first time he does it, it's kinda funny; the next million times he kills people with a hit to the head with a frying pan is just too repetitive and uninteresting. I was actually relieved to see Raoul strangle someone with a chain to add some variety, but that's the only thing different about the deaths, the other deaths are with the frying pan.
