A VERY poor film.
22 May 2000 | by (S. Bound Brook, NJ) – See all my reviews

This is a VERY confusing murder-mystery of the early 30's. I've watched it a couple of times, and it just doesn't make much sense in spots.

btw.....I dunno where they got the name for this film -- there is NO "shadow" and NO ONE laughs!

YOU won't, either!
