Movie Info

Down a seedy city street, a young woman is obsessed with what appears to be a long abandoned theatre. One night, she sees the front door slightly ajar and impulsively decides to sneak inside. But there in the vast, eerie auditorium, a show unlike any other unfolds before her eyes.

Critic Reviews for The Theatre Bizarre

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (2)

These elements may be shocking and even bizarre. But, like a lot of midnight-movie provocations, they soon turn predictable.

An impressively good hit-to-miss ratio ... Entirely worth a horror fan's time, but is probably too erratic and violent a film for the casual enthusiast.

The Theatre Bizarre is a delicious horror buffet with some gore-geous treats and gruesome confections.

As with most anthology efforts, only a few of the segments truly shine, yet the production as a whole carries itself confidently and shares a few scattered pleasures.

Absent anything scary or even shocking, the only question is why Enola sticks around for all six shorts. Or why the filmmakers think we would.

Audience Reviews for The Theatre Bizarre

Grotesque, dark, creepy and (living up to its title) very bizarre indeed. Some stories felt vapid, yes, while some were interesting and bizarre enough to satisfy every horror fan as myself. The gores were over-the-top and very painful to watch that it felt uncomfortably good. The Theater Bizarre has made me stand to my seat and scream for an encore.

An engaging horror anthology film that brings together some of the most daring film directors today; A young woman wanders inside a old, decrepit theatre where a bizarre puppet hosts six acts of the dark, grotesque, and sexually perverse.

Surprisingly solid anthology. While the frame for presenting these stories is fairly mediocre, the actual short films range between "better than expected" and "whoa, holy cow that was much better than i expected." Even the low end of the spectrum managed to engage me as a viewer, even when the storyline was ridiculous, absurd, and downright gruesome. The story hooked me and I couldn't wait to see how they ended it. And that's pretty good. But the two standout stories (The Accident, Vision Stains) are what take this up a few grand notches. The Accident is a poetic exploration of a defining moment in a young girl's life. A number of the scenes in that are shot in a way that made it feel like it was taken out of a Lars Von Trier film. Vision Stains has one of the most beautifully ambitious sci-fi plot I've seen in a long time. It should be made into a full length, though it stands fairly well as-is.
