Directed by Kimo Stamboel and Timo Tjahjanto, Macabre, an Indonesian horror film, will leave you emotionally scarred.

It all begins when five friends meet Maya (Imelda Therinne), a strange woman, and offer her a ride home. Once they reach Maya’s incredibly creepy home, she pushes them to come in and meet her mother, Dara (Shareefa Daanish). After eating Dara’s poisoned dinner and being hauled away to the torture basement, the friends have to fight for their very lives.

And yes, Macabre is a slasher because there were guts and blood in every single scene! Most of the characters are either cut with knives or ripped apart with a chainsaw. (To be honest, this movie could have had more creative “gore” methods.)

All of the characters were pretty stupid; however, Ladya (Julie Estelle), Jimmy (Daniel Mananta), and Eko (Dendy Subangil) take the cake. In one scene, these three characters just stare at Maya, who is loading her crossbow, instead of running away! Seriously? Why would you just sit and stare at a murderous woman? Run away!

And Dara, the insane mother, will crawl under your skin and stay there, and after a while, yes, you will begin to hate her. Ugh, I just hate her, and she never dies! (This character ruined the entire movie for me.)


Overall, it is incredibly difficult to watch Macabre.
