How can I make my creepy meat themed Hallowe'en party as weird and fantastic as possible?

I want to throw a suspicious-meat Hallowe'en party! I want to dress up as a smiling, well-coiffed butcher with a gleaming white but blood-spattered apron; ideally my partner would wear formal wear and a macabre pig's head mask. I can imagine leaving blood residue and partial handprints in my sinks and bathtub, a bloody meat grinder attached to my bar, and plastic-wrapped "body parts" in the fridge. I don't know where to get an inexpensive meat hook, but I'd love to hang one in the shower. A lot of my friends are into snout-to-tail eating, so serving an assortment of meats (definitely mini sausages and mini meat pies) and charcuterie would be great. Oh, and a bloody-looking punch! What other food / decorations / costumes / etc. go with a grotesque, sort-of-surreal cannibalesque party? Bonus points for anything that evokes the subtle, playful creepiness of Jeunet and Caro's Delicatessen and Burton's Sweeny Todd rather than blatant gore, but all ideas are welcome!
