Macabre was released in Italy on April 17, 1980.
The film was released twice on DVD in the United States. The first time in 2001 by Anchor Bay Entertainment. The second DVD release came from Blue Underground in 2007.
Kim Newman (Monthly Film Bulletin) stated that "with only two films, however, Lamberto Bava has established a distinct personality within the genre" noting that Lamberto Bava "favours story-lines as tight and inner-directed as his neurotic characters." Newman noted that Macabre "will probably be remembered as the definitive severed-head-in-the-fridge film."
