American-style whodunit - made in England!
11 April 2013 | by (Nottingham, UK) – See all my reviews

Don't let the misleading title fool you into thinking this is a horror movie or even in an old-dark-house mystery - it's actually a rather light-hearted whodunnit in a hotel. On New Year's Eve, a guest who has recently come into money is murdered (initially diagnosed as suicide) and a vacationing American gangster (Noah Beery) turns detective to solve the case.

The murder comes well over the halfway mark but there's plenty of interesting characters and American-style fast-talk humour to keep you entertained before then. Surprisingly pacey for a 1930s British film and quite entertaining, even if it's far from ground-breaking. It's available for download for free at the Internet Movie Archive.
