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. But there in the dark, decrepit auditorium, a show unlike any other unfolds before her eyes. Its host is an eerie human puppet named Peg Poett who will introduce Penny to six tales of the bizarre: A couple traveling in a remote part of the French Pyrenees cross 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 blur the lines between fantasy and reality; The horrors of the real world are interpreted through the mind of a child; A woman addicted to other people's memories gets her fix through the vitreous fluid of her victims' eyeballs; And a perverse obsession with sweets turns sour for a couple in too deep.

I just saw The Theater Bizarre on DVD and I have to say that it's a shame that great films like this are only seen in the festival circus and don't get wide distribution. It would have been great to see this film on a silver screen in a theater, than seeing it on TV. But as long as Hollywood is flooding us with stupid and uninteresting movies that nobody cares about and that are only made for economic reasons we will have to live with it, that all the good and interesting stuff is condemned to DVD and the small screen. Hopefully one day all the stupid people wake up and are investing their money into movies that are worth seeing and not into worhtless and silly crap that comes out of Hollywood.
