Horror omnibus snimljen u ko-produkciji Amerike, Francuske i Kanade koji se sastoji od 6 različitih priča koje je režiralo šest različitih redatelja – Douglas Buck (segment “The Accident”), Buddy Giovinazzo (segment “I Love You”), David Gregory (segment “Sweets”), Karim Hussain (segment “Vision Stains”), Tom Savini (segment “Wet Dreams”), i Richard Stanley (segment “The Mother Of Toads”). Jeda od redatelja, ujedno i stručnjak za make up, Tom Savini, ujedno i glumi u svom segmentu, a od poznatijih faca tu je još i Udo Kier. The Theatre Bizarre će premijerno biti prikaza 16. srpnja na Fantasia International Film Festivalu, a nakon toga i na Film4 FrightFestu.
The Theatre Bizarre is an anthology horror film set in an old, disused theatre wherein six twisted tales play out over the course of one night. Each tale, inspired by the term “Grand Guignol”, is the work of a different director: Buddy Giovinazzo (Combat Shock), Douglas Buck (Sisters), David Gregory (Plague Town), Karim Hussain (Subconscious Cruelty), Jeremy Kasten (Wizard of Gore), Tom Savini (Night of the Living Dead) and Richard Stanley (Hardware). The individual plots, tones and styles are as dissimilar from one another as could be possible. Stanley’s THE MOTHER OF TOADS is an atmospheric and perverse Lovecraftian chiller shot in France starring Lucio Fulci vet Catriona MacColl. Buck’s THE ACCIDENT is a peacefully disquieting meditation on death that evokes Malick over mayhem. Shot in Berlin, Giovinazzo’s ominously titled I LOVE YOU details the psychosexual agony of a bad romantic pairing taking a turn for the worst, starring ANTIBODIES’ André Hennicke. Savini’s WET DREAMS showcases Debbie Rochon as a housewife getting wise to her cheating husband’s ways and features grisly FX by Toetag Pictures (AUGUST UNDERGROUND). Hussain’s gruesome Montreal-lensed VISION STAINS is a surrealistic nightmare starring THE WILD HUNT’s Kaniehtiio Horn in a tour-de-force performance as a special kind of writer with a work methodology that will shock your senses – along with hers. Gregory’s stylish SWEETS is a theatrically comic, Burtonesque gorefest of bad love, worse eating habits and very distasteful social practices.
