Intresting DebutBy JAMIOUSE (49 reviews) from PILMOOR, YORK , 06 Jul 2009
[Highly rated reviewer]Macbre is Lamberto Bava's debut film as director, he has the mission of following in his fathers foot steps. Mario Bava was the master of Italian Gothic Horror and the creator of the Giallo, Italian Thrillers.
Macabre is a strange film to review without giving away the plot. Basically two lovers are involved in a car accident and the women doesn't take the death of her male lover too well, leading to a gruesome discovery in the fridge.
Macabre is one of Arrow Films first releases on there Masters Of Giallo label, it's a good clean well presented print and audio is fine. The extras are well presented and all in all altough the film might not be to everyones tastes the extras are worth watching.

Should be listed under ComedyBy Soosal (20 reviews) , 29 Jul 2013Why should I be surprised though. Old seventies (or whatever) 'horror' if you can call it that and supposedly based on true events. Watch it if you're bored (which I was) and get off on fake sex noises (she is bloody awful) made me laugh anyway :-D
Not badBy a customer , 24 Jul 2013An interesting little horror flick. I kind of already guessed early on what the shock ending would be. I found the movie watchable at least once,its worth watching for the beginning and ending scene.
Predictable but enjoyable. Perverse indeed.By Pale (94 reviews) from LONDON , 09 Jun 2013This is a well presented number with strong characterisation and good performances imo.
Not a very demanding or intricate plot, though and very predictable (especially if you watch a lot of these giallo type things).
Good fun, though.
A bit of a 'Marmite' ending, eh?
Two Heads are Better than One!By Catonflix (2 reviews) , 10 Dec 2012A curious horror film from 1979 that follows the stylistic eccentricities and formulae of the master, Mario Bava except it is by his son, Lamberto's, being first feature film. A deranged mother spurns her children to indulge in endless heated passion with her soon to be decapitated ear ringed lover. On learning that her spiteful daughter has drowned her son in the bath in order to get attention, she suffers a car accident and her lover's head is sliced off. She spends time in an asylum and returns to the creepy New Orleans mansion, where she lives with a blind landlord, called Robert and creates a shrine to her lover's memory, which she adorns and worships in a bizarre and fetishistic manner. She keeps her lover's severed head in the freezer and takes it out nightly to caress and cavort with it. Heavy on weird atmosphere, maggots, and the discordant synthesizer music typical of the time. Entertaining and yet ridiculous. Worth watching if only for the hammy acting and fashions of the late 70's. Badly dubbed in impossible sounding Southern accents.

Nice endingBy SteveEmmett (40 reviews) from Malton , 05 Nov 2012At one point I thought I might not get to the end. I like the nasty little girl. It gets a bit slow then, and I had to make myself keep going. It seemed predictable - but the end is worth the wait.
