Temple of Doom was one of the most scarring movies of my childhood. It was from an era that didn’t have PG-13 ratings, so my parents were tricked into letting me watch it when I was young, when the most violence I’d been previously exposed to was Tom and Jerry almost murdering each other on a constant basis.
Surprisingly, it wasn’t the ripping out of the still-beating heart that got me. It was the dinner scene where Indy is offered monkey brains as a delicacy. As a picky eater then (and now), it was the ultimate gross-out moment for me, and now I can relive it all over again with this Monkey Brain Cake from Bubble and Sweet (via Geekologie).
More pictures below including both the original, and a reenactment of the scene.
