Now, as much as I love DEMONS, I think Lamberto Bava's first film, MACABRE, is easily his best, and a true gem of the Italian horror genre at that. Some claim it is boring, while others claim that it's "ridiculous shock ending" ruins the whole film, but I have to disagree completely. I find it quite captivating, and while the end is rather cheesy once you think about it, I actually sorta like it, and think it works despite going against the rest of the film. Anyhow, this film is very suspenseful, and a bit creepy in an oddly disturbing way. Bava's direction is top notch here, and he strikes a perfect balance in the mood. I never thought it bordered on camp. It's his most polished work in my opinion. The storyline itself is really intriguing to me, and Bava plays it out wonderfully. The little bitch of a girl is also a character you just love to hate. She's a great addition to this film, and a big part of why it works so well. This film is quite underrated, and it deserves better. Anyone who hasn't seen it should check it out. Now, to those who have seen it, what do you think?
