Comedy Thriller thats neither funny nor thrilling
11 October 2014 | by (london) – See all my reviews

Penniless brother and sister go down to an isolated country house that they have inherited.They are joined by the sisters fiances.They do not know that a gang of jewel thieves are using it for the location of the secret place where they keep their haul.The brother and sister decided with the journalist that the sister should hide in a hole in the cellar.Her boyfriend ,who is a journalist will firstly headline her disappearance and then get a scoop when he finds her.Unfortunately she is hiding where the loot is located.There are a couple of murders and a predictable ending.Even the introduction of Noah Beery into the proceedings cannot get the proceedings going.It is just too predictable and no cliché is let unturned.
