Macabre Directed by William Castle

  • mjgildea's rating of the film Macabre

    Macabre has a horrifically great premise that falls prey to a sloppy plot and is ultimately wasted. The soap opera schlock mucked things up but by the time the twist rolled around I was already kind of out to lunch despite being reasonably impressed. The stupid animated end title sequence didn't help but at the end of the day, Macabre is just your standard William Castle movie -- entertaining but not that great.
