There are some real crazy people out there, and this movie proves it. I had predicted the surprise at the climax about earlier than half way in, though, so it wasn't a surprise for me. Most of the movie is predictable, but what was a surprise was the very end of the movie, which is the only real punch this movie takes at the audience. Overall, this movie was creepy and full of crazy yet realistic characters, but it was also very predictable, and it could have been a lot better.
"Macabro" is a very strange film and quite disturbing which is the theatrical debut of Lamberto Bava.This film isn't gory, it is all about the athmosphere and creepy mood and though it has a slow pacing it keep you interested and it never turns boring.
Italian horror flicks have the market cornered on the art of absurd, fantastical facial expressions. This movie is no different. The main character played by Bernice Stegers pops an outrageous lunacy laced mug in almost every scene she's in. I don't care for child actors generally but the daughter in this turns in a performance creepy enough to win a standing ovation from a audience of pedophile priests. The story in this is less than typical - which is an asset - it takes a long time to build though so if patience for you is not a virtue I wouldn't recommend this.
