Electrifying Climax, 11 March 2010
Author: malcolmgsw from london

I have to say firstly that the sound on my copy was fairly poor.At times i found it very difficult to make out what was being said.However what i will say is that this was a slightly different entry in the Edgar wallace series since the main issue was which of the main protagonists would get to murder the other first.I have to say that i am not a great fan of adding a dominant love interest to these type of films so i have to admit that this was not greatly to my taste.The best bit is the climax.One of the main characters has made the swimming pool in the garden "live".So to touch anything metal is going to electrocute you.All the main characters gather round the swimming pool.Some know that the pool is live others don't know.There is a lot of horseplay and people nearly falling in.Then the inevitable happens.You will have to watch this to find out what happens.However the climax doesn't entirely make up for the dull plot that precedes it.
