***Spoilers***

Strange, surly and menacing looking man turns up in town, the two stingy old gits at the hunting lodge disappear and he takes over. No-one really notices - not even the maid at the lodge - which about sums this film up.

Eventually (once someone finally thinks they might have been murdered, and the locals get into a lather and go to lynch him) the stingy old gits turn up safe and well having been on holiday (somewhere different to normal, which confused the locals) and spent oodles of money. The potential killer is (I think) a seemingly small time hoodlum who is their Nephew. Oh, and he falls for the maid too. Yep, only seen it a million times before. But done better every time...

Thus, a completely formulaic stodgy fare with woodworm-riddled acting, this is a film to be avoided at all costs. It's an only an hour long for good reason!

2/10
