Movies' Most Dangerous Buildings | Delicatessen (1991)
Delicatessen (1991)

Address: Post-apocalyptic Paris

The Upside Following the total breakdown of civilisation, the destruction of much of the world’s resources and the disappearance of much of the population, the survival of this classic French apartment block and delicatessen is something to celebrate. Here, amid the destruction, a sliver of France lives on, a defiantly eccentric group of individuals heroically making ends meet despite the chaos.

The Downside Well, take the wrong job or rent the wrong room and you might end up on the communal menu. So that’s a risk. The walls are also paper-thin, making it ideal for the nosy or voyeurs but less-than-awesome for everyone else.

Survival techniques One technique would be not to answer that job advert in the first place. If you must take a place here, then you’ll need crazy butchering skills and extreme friendliness to win the residents over to your side as far as possible, and ultimately you should try to befriend underground vegetarian rebels.

Chances of survival Statistically low. Try to avoid post-apocalyptic France.

How about that place from Resident Evil, what's it called, The Hive? There's zombies (naturally) and there's that room with the lasers that slice you up. Might count as dangerous, no? More
