Being Halloween time,

what was that movie where the farmer planted stranded traveler's in the ground?
Then made sausage out of them.

Vacerator, the movie you’re thinking of is Motel Hell (1980).  It’s mediocre camp with an overlay of weird horror and organic, locally sourced cannibalism.  It’s like a drag-queen version of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974), but it falls far short of the mark. 




The last line of the movie about sums it up: “I’m the biggest hypocrite of them all.  My meats... I used preservatives."

Thats it Mikael!

Slipped my mind. Was there another film that is similar with Chevy Chase and Ady McDowell? They were driving in an early 80's BMW 735i. Slightly better movie.
The farm or old coal mine owner had junk appliances and such on the property.

Got it;

"Nothing but trouble" 1991. Demi Moore, Dan Akroyd, Chevy Chase captured by Baron Von Valkenheiser while driving back from Atlantic city.

I avoid Demi Moore films at all cost, so I can honestly say I missed that little gem.  IMDB ranks Motel Hell a lot higher, which is kind of sad.

Those were tough machines. This can do much more than grind. It should take any size #12 attachment (same as what hooks up to the mixers/buffalo choppers). We use the slicing and shredding attachment all the time on our mixers at work.

My Dad's Uncle Fred's grocery store had one like that. However, I think it ran on 240 volts. He also had a Hobart slicer.

Well, it's a southern dish, but I'll pass on souse. The grinder would understandably easily grind anything.
