Fanciful Murder Mystery
12 February 2003 | by (Newfoundland, Canada) – See all my reviews

I've got to admit my initial attraction to this movie was the fact that Bela Lugosi was in it...going in for that reason, this film will prove a disappointment as Bela's role is a relatively short one.

Despite this, I have to admit to enjoying this somewhat fanciful murder mystery which has the detective writer as the hero and ultimately a more competent detective than the real thing. This story about a murder on a movie set still feels more like a movie than real life..but the murder mystery does keep you guessing and interested which means it's certainly worth a watch.
