Popcorn obviously makes a good side dish for turkey.

Two food-themed horror entries–both in their second weekend–performed well at the domestic box office this long Thanksgiving weekend, according to a report on Deadline.

The Menu–directed by Mark Mylod from a screenplay by Seth Reiss and Will Tracy–placed fifth with a five-day total of $7.4 million, playing in 3,300 theaters across the country.

The film—which follows a young couple who travels to a remote island where the chef has prepared a lavish menu with some shocking surprises–boasts an ensemble cast of Ralph Fiennes, Anya Taylor-Joy, Nicholas Hoult, Judith Light and John Leguizamo.

And Bones and All–from director Luca Guadagnino and screenwriter David Kajganich–cracked the Top 10 with a sixth-place finish and a five-day total of $3.5 million, as it played in 2,700 theaters.

The film follows a pair of young cannibalistic lovers–played by Taylor Russell and Timothee Chalamet–who flee together on a road trip across the country.
