Review Big fans of Psycho-style wackiness will probably enjoy this movie, but as a thriller, it's rather tepid and excruciatingly slow, there being only about an hour's worth of dialogue and a half hour of mystery stretched out to ninety minutes. Just what is this woman keeping locked in her freezer? If you've seen a few horror films, you can guess, and the climactic revelations won't be all that climactic.The movie has many of the usual problems of Italian horrors, some of which have to do with low budgets. Macabre allegedly takes place in New Orleans and while the reliance on indoor sets might, in more experienced hands, give the movie a claustrophobic feel, here it seems merely limiting. Bava follows the Italian practice of shooting silent and dubbing in all sound later; in this film, a ghost story badly in need of creepy sound effects, there's a flat uninteresting soundtrack featuring some unconvincing southern accents.

Review This is an unassuming and decent little film. It could almost be an episode of The Twilight Zone that has been spun out to feature length. The story is a one-twist tale - everything depends on the revelation of its central surprise, it hasn't been designed with a second act. At times it does seem a little padded, but for the most part Bava does a fine job of building the mystery up about who it is that Bernice Stegers spends all her time in the upstairs apartment and exactly what it is that she keeps locked in the icebox...The telling of the story in terms of the horror and suspense genres tends to mitigate against its believability - they seem too artificial for real life. And the twist ending where the severed head comes to life and turns and bites Molnar makes such claims seem ever more ludicrous, not to mention spoils a good deal of the mood build-up by going for a sensationalistic shock effect.
