*Maybe a little spoiler-ish*
I just finished watching Macabre, and I suspect that hearing so many people talk about it made me raise my expectations a little too high.
For the most part it’s your typical crazy cannibal family living out in the woods slasher flick. Complete with stupid cops and victims that do all of the wrong things. Why would you go back into a lunatic’s house if you’ve already gotten out once? Why? And seriously people, you know they’re never dead the first time.
That’s not to say that it doesn’t have some great scenes, and some fun Raimi-esque shots that were really cool. I also liked the supernatural element of the film, and wish they’d have explored it a bit more.
If you’ve been meaning to watch it, definitely still do, Just keep in mind that if you’re a horror movie buff, it may not be anything very new to you.
