  • Macabre (2009)

    (Just found out about this movie)

    This movie is also know as Dara and not to be confused with Darah perawan bulan madu (2009) which is not the same movie.

    Plot: Two newly weds Adjie and Astrid, along with 3 of their best friends decided to have an interstate road trip as a last attempt to reconcile Adjie with his estranged little sister Ladya. Their trip is however abruptly interrupted when they run into Maya, a strange girl out of nowhere, who wanders aimlessly into their path. "I've been robbed" is all she has to say. The friends unanimously decided to give her a ride to her isolated house by the end of the woods. Maya introduces Adjie and friends to her blue-blooded mother Dara, a woman of ageless enigma and few spoken words.

    Yup, I saw it. Didn't think it was that great. Give it a go though, we all have to decide for ourselves.

        Yep, I couldn't agree with you more, man. Just an extremely cliche ridden Texas Chainsaw Massacre/Inside retread from beginning to end. It was very middle of the road. Very meh to me. I will say two things about it, though.

        1. To all of those gore-hounds on these boards, this is the movie for you. It is absolutely bloody as hell.

        2. I would like give kudos to whoever it was that played the mother, because her character was extremely unsettling. Her character, though, is almost an exact copy of Beatrice Dalle's performance in Inside, starting off eerily calm and ending up extremely psychotic.

              Her name is Shareefa Danesh. She is actually a comedian.


              She isn't a scream queen for nothing, right?

                    Yes! I finally got to see this after a UK release, although it's not quite the masterpiece the trailer would suggest it's still hardcore horror fun! Full of thrills and spills. However has anyone else got the UK version and found the transfer incredibly blotchy with blacks appearing more greyish-blue? I found it really annoying and off-putting! Anyway, great film!

                    8/10

                      I saw this a few years ago at a horror film festival. My memory isn't great but I remember it as just decent, very cliched etc. but if you like this kinda thing and gore its worth a watch.

                      And yeah although my memory is poor I do remember the lead villain, she put in a good performance.

                        I brought the UK version last year and it looks fine, this film gets an easy 10/10 from me!

                          They were SUPPOSED to, they acquired the rights, but that was in 2011. Maybe BD is taking the Weinstein Company path and buying up rights to awesome flicks then sitting on them for way too many years. Im beginning to think ill never see Livid because the Weinsteins acquired the rights for U.S. distribution. COME ON BD GIVE US A RELEASE!

                            You could always hack your DVD player to make it region free. That's what I did when Inside wasn't released in the UK. It's easier than you think, you just Google your DVD player make and model and add something like "region hack" and lots of websites give you instructions on how to hack it. Although, not all players are able to do it.

                              I have a region-free player and at one time I found a legit release with proper subs, but they went the way of the wind on the few sites I found it on. So if you, or anyone else, know where I can get one (im not big on torrenting or pirating) - let me know please. But it still doesn't excuse the fact that these awesome flicks have been acquired for U.S. distribution, but theyre just sitting in some backroom collecting dust. I can understand certain wait periods with smaller distributors like BD's company, but theres not really any excuse for bigger companies like the Weinsteins. Theyre just A-Typical rich Hollywood bigwigs who only care about pushing something out when it will earn them massive profit. They don't care about the fanbase. That's why theyre still cobbing Kill Bill: The Whole Bloody Affair. Theres dozens more that suffered this fate. (I maybe wrong but wasn't Mandy Lane a victim of the Weinsteins as well?)



                              I apologize for driving this thread off topic. My rant is over.
