The Theatre Bizarre (2011)

After taking a week or so off, it was time to get back into the swing of things. Of course, there were some good points to being away from the blog. I got to hang-out with my younger brother and enjoy an awesome show headlined by Flogging Molly. Then, I got to watch one of the daughters score their first goal in soccer as her team prepares for the playoffs next weekend. Not to mention, hanging out and enjoying Mother’s Day with Brenda, my mother and my grandmother... Yet, it was time to get back at it with an interesting flick, one Brenda picked out, The Theatre Bizarre from 2011.

Plot/ Down a seedy city street in her neighborhood, young Enola Penny is obsessed with what appears to be a long abandoned theatre. One night, she sees that the front door is slightly ajar and impulsively decides to sneak inside. Little did she know that in the dark, decrepit auditorium, a show unlike any other would unfold before her eyes.

I am a huge fan of anthologies, especially ones that are a bit strange and non-linear. This flick, much like Little Deaths definitely, walks to its own vision. Yes, there are some issues, which keep it from being one of the best as it lacks some coherent scripting, natural flow, characterization and as usual, some pieces are much better than others are. Fortunately, there is something in each one that delivers some entertainment (some mare warped than most), and in the end keeps it entertaining. Yes, this flick is not for everyone, and people who do not like gore, blood, darkness or madness should stay far away, but if you do, check it out! It is an entertaining way to spend a couple hours.
