Allow Us To Explain
Are you hungry? Couldn’t you go for a nice, juicy, bodily organ right about now? Maybe raw? No? Huh. That’s weird, because everyone in this week’s power grid did just that. Some did it for fun, some for pleasure, some because they thought it would make them strong, and others, because they were just looking for a good meal. And no, these organs weren’t always of the animal variety.
While we included some non-human organ eating scenarios in our list, the majority are straight up cannibalism. One would hope that eating anything that belonged to a human would be left strictly to zombies but alas, in pop-culture, that’s just not the case. Heck, it’s not even the case in the real world. Survival scenarios have sadly resulted in cannibalism in the past but the act was also prevalent in many cultures throughout history. And yes, serial killers have done it too.
We’re going through a period of pop culture right now where zombies and flesh eating are commonplace, but there’s just something different about flesh eating and cannibalism when you make it specific to one vital body part, or remove the supernatural element from the motivation. Then you’ve just got somebody choking down a pretty specific and vital body part because they’ve got no choice.
We’ve left the real, scary cannibals at home, and are here to discuss some of the most fantastic instances of organ consumption in fiction. If you’re hungry well, you won’t be after this. Things will get very, very graphic from here on out. You have been warned.
