A top-notch "Old House" mystery!
3 April 2000 | by (S. Bound Brook, NJ) – See all my reviews

This film is the concluding episode of a radio mystery, wherein listeners were to try to figure out who the murder is.

In a unique plot twist, the head of a gang (Ricardo Cortez) becomes a "detective" to find the "real killer" before the

police arrive and accuse HIM.

The reviewer who wrote that the "ending makes no sense at all" should watch it more carefully; it makes COMPLETE sense, and shows how the movie "steers you" into thinking that the reason for the murder is one thing, while the ACTUAL reason is something totally different! (I can't say any more without spoiling the ending).

By ALL MEANS, see it! Norm
