The Theatre Bizarre
Down a seedy city street, a young woman is obsessed with what appears to be a long abandoned theatre. One night, she sees the front door slightly ajar and impulsively decides to sneak inside. But there in the vast, eerie auditorium, a show unlike any other unfolds before her eyes. Its host is an odd marionette-like man who will introduce her to six tales of the truly bizarre: A couple traveling in a remote part of the French Pyrenees crosses paths with a lustful witch; A paranoid lover faces the wrath of a partner who has been pushed to her limit; The Freudian dreams of an unfaithful husband… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"These elements may be shocking and even bizarre. But, like a lot of midnight-movie provocations, they soon turn predictable."
‑ Mark Jenkins, Washington Post
"As with most anthology efforts, only a few of the segments truly shine, yet the production as a whole carries itself confidently and shares a few scattered pleasures."
‑ Brian Orndorf, BrianOrndorf.com
"Several of the segments make up for their lack of polish with a clear relish for their genre."
‑ John Hazelton, Screen International
"An impressively good hit-to-miss ratio ... Entirely worth a horror fan's time, but is probably too erratic and violent a film for the casual enthusiast."
‑ William Bibbiani, CraveOnline
"Absent anything scary or even shocking, the only question is why Enola sticks around for all six shorts. Or why the filmmakers think we would."
‑ Chris Hewitt (St. Paul), St. Paul Pioneer Press
"The Theatre Bizarre is a delicious horror buffet with some gore-geous treats and gruesome confections."
‑ Beth Accomando, KPBS.org
"A macabre horror anthology that suffers from a couple weak entries weighing it down, but still compares relatively favorably to the qualitative mean established by Anchor Bay's 'Masters of Horror' series a few years back."
‑ Brent Simon, Shockya.com
