Jane (Bernice Stegers) has a wonderful life, a nice husband, Leslie (Fernando Pannullo), 2 nice kids, and a big house in the green ... but she also has an affair with Fred (Roberto Posse), with whom she regularly meets in an appartment she has rented from blind Robert (Stanko Molnar), who is secretly in love with her ...

Thing is, her daughter Lucy (Veronica Zinny) one day finds out she is having an affair and finds out where Jane and her lover meet - so one day when mummy's out shagging again, she drowns her little brother, then calls her mother and tells her about the horrible accident. When Fred drives Jane home in a rush, they have a terrible car accident, in which Fred is decapitated. All this is too much for Jane and she goes mental ...

One year later: Jane is finally released from the asylum, but instead of returning to her family, she moves into the appartment she shared with Fred at Robert's place. And since she never got over losing Fred, she has his head stored away in her freezer and frequently makes love to it (!).

Occasionally, Jane's daughter Lucy comes for a visit, who still hasn't forgiven her mother for cheating on her father, and she frequently reminds mummy of her dead son, just to torture her a bit. Meanwhile, even blind Robert has grown a tad suspicious about his tenant, the woman he loves ... and one day he finds Fred's head in her freezer - and somehow Lucy gets wind of it and finds a perfect way of getting revenge on her mother - by making her a soup with Fred's ear as a special ingredience ... and then, when mommy is beyond breaking point after just having eaten her lover's ear, she tells her that it was actually her, Lucy, who killed her little brother ... which causes Jane to drown Lucy in the bathtub, just like Lucy drowned her brother. After that, Jane attacks Robert too, but with the help of a skewer and the turned-on oven, he manages to kill her in self-defense.

But just as you think everything is over, Robert is bitten in the neck by Fred's (severed) head (?!) ...

The film's title probably sums up the film's plot best: Macabre. And as the title as such might sggest, the movie is not so much genuine horror but a trip to the dark side, where little girls kill their even smaller brothers, women keep their lovers' heads and have sex with them and everything simply must end in murder. So much for the film's plot anyways, unfortunately director Lamberto Bava (whose first solo-assignement as a director this was) proves he's not really up to his brilliant script: To qualify as an art film Macabre would have deserved to be, Bava's direction is much too conventional, unimaginative and unsubtle, while the film is also too slowly-paced and at times too boring to work as a genuine horror thriller.

That said, the film is still quite interesting for its script alone, just don't expect too much and you won't be disappointed.
