Audience Reviews for Macabre


A sort of interesting directorial debut by Lamberto Bava (Mario's son). This movie starts off strongly and ends cool, but it really drags in the middle. The secret becomes rather obvious early on and then the movie just plods along. For better Lamberto Bava, look at A Knife in the Dark or Delirium.

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.

SPOILER ALERT!!! not that you will really care since you will not watch this one ever! SPOILER ALERT!!! Slow moving and somewhat predictable shocker. At first I thought she was just having ghost orgasms with her dead lover. Then I realized the stupid truth when the decapitation was driven home (AAAAAH). Stanko Molnar really tries hard to make blindness compelling by fumbling around ineffectually and staring into the camera at weird angles. The last ten or fifteen minutes of this thing is simply too good to be true. Really. Fantastic stuff.
