Poor, hungry peasant Macario longs for just one good meal on the Day of the Dead. After his wife cooks a turkey for him, he meets three apparitions, the Devil, God, and Death. Each asks him to share his turkey, but he refuses all except Death. In return, Death gives him a bottle of water which will heal any illness. Soon, Macario is more wealthy than the village doctor, which draws the attention of the feared Inquisition.

IMDb

 

Whitney gives a special treat to the Classic Era Grue-Crew with Macario as her pick for this episode. She tells of watching Macario with her father and her emotional response to the film. For her, it’s a beautiful movie about a character taking care of people, who must decide who to trust, and the consequences his choice brings. Chad identifies Macario as a fable, one of his favorite types of movie. In the case of Macario, the story of a good and honest man who is trying to care for his family but still desires something just for himself captures his heart. The importance of celebrating death in this culture appeals to Daphne. She loves the openness and honesty of the title character and his intriguing interactions with death as a character. Jeff also loves Macario. In particular, he is fascinated with the constant presence of hunger, Macario’s relationship with his wife, his interactions with Dios, el Diablo, and la Muerte. 

The Decades of Horror Classic Era Grue-Crew highly recommends Macario, a film with a great look and visuals in the telling of an emotional, supernatural fable. As of this writing, the only streaming available can be found on YouTube: Macario (1960) Roberto Gavaldón - English subtitles.

Gruesome Magazine’s Decades of Horror: The Classic Era records a new episode every two weeks. Up next on their very flexible schedule is one chosen by Chad: The Valley of Gwangi (1968). Ray Harryhausen, James Franciscus, Richard Carlson, Gustavo Rojo, Freda Jackson, and Gila Golan for the win! You will not want to miss that one!
