The Theatre Bizarre (2011) Review:
The Theatre Bizarre is a compilation of short stories directed by six different directors and wrapped around a backbone story, typically in the vein of Creepshow or the recent V/H/S. The film is actually quite similar to the latter, but the stories are here much better than in V/H/S. Despite the fact that they are absolutely not related together…they are diverse and very original.
The first one about a witch/monster is basic and predictable, but there is a nice work done on the disgusting texture that makes it quite interesting to watch. An interesting textural display is also to be found in the last story, which is by far the best one to me. There is a lot of very graphic scenes combining food and gore which tend to shock the eye.
The story in which the woman steals the memory of homeless people to write a book is also really innovative and clever, with a brilliant ending.
The other stories are more “conventional”. Still, none of them are “bad”. There are no dead time and, even if the backbone story is irrelevant, the overall compilation remains super entertaining. If you like a compilation of short horror stories such as V/H/S, you’re in for a treat, this is a very good film.
