Matt Brunson Film Frenzy It's definitely an acquired taste, but those who don't mind its leisurely pace -- or its departure from the traditional murder-mystery template -- will find it a worthwhile endeavor.

Steve D Straightforward and predictable for this kind of thing. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 08/02/23 Full Review Audience Member Tiene un serio problema estructural para un thriller, uno incluso basado en los slowburners de Agatha Christie. Apenas tenemos algo de tension los primeros 15 minutos de peliculas y los 15 ultimos, dejandonos una parte central con una gran deficiencia tonal. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/29/23 Full Review Audience Member Bizarre but very watchable. A couple build their dream home but put their lives in danger as it is on cursed ground Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/10/23 Full Review Audience Member Not identifiably an Agatha Christie adapted story, but it does have enough intrigue and interest to make the sum of its parts worthwhile. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member An interesting romantic mystery for Agatha Christie buffs and old-film enthuasists. Everyone else would groan at how "endless" it is. A British chauffeur falls in love with an American heiress. They get married awfully fast and get the keys to the 'ideal house of tomorrow'. All does not seem right though. Murder doesn't happen until the last 15 minutes. Some old lady, though, doesn't like them on the property. The acting is decent. There are a few jolts in the film, mainly due to weird noises in the score and some experimental visuals. That house is a lavishly decorated manor, with lovely scenery, neat little features, and the classy feel. British comfort here, which is supposed to build up tension amidst the subtly sinister tone. Riiiiiiiiiight??? But it is devoid of any suspense. The plot's pretty confusing due to its knack to jump timelines, and this may require multiple viewings. The twist was crazy and weird though I never quite understood it. Not to mention, the pace was sloooooooooooooooooow. I suppose if more energy were put into it, then it'd be a better movie. This one is pretty dated and would appeal to a certain cult. However, I think this one needs a remake that can manage to tell Agatha Christie's tale, but without the confusion. Ok movie, but it needs some work. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review Audience Member Respectable thriller, good cast. Not the best filming of Agatha Christie but it was interesting. That's quite a house too! It is a little predictable though. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Read all reviews
