Macabre is a 1980 Italian horror film directed by Lamberto Bava.


Jane Baker, a woman living in New Orleans, is carrying on an affair with a man, Fred, behind her husband and children's back. Her adolescent daughter, Lucy, suspects her mother is cheating on her father. Jane carries on trysts with Fred in an apartment she rents in a boarding house owned by Mrs. Duval, whose blind adult son Robert also lives in the building. While Jane is meeting with Fred for sex, Lucy drowns her little brother Michael in the bathtub and stages it as an accident. When she receives news of the death over the phone, Fred offers to drive her home, but crashes into a guardrail en route; Fred is brutally killed in the accident, but Jane survives.
