Star-laden dud on a TV-movie budget...
20 December 2008 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

The trailer for this comedic scare flick was much more successful than the actual movie; delineating sort of a "Ten Little Indians" scenario, it quickly highlighted a passel of imaginative deaths, such as two kissing lovers crushed to death in a shower stall. Unfortunately, this tacky turkey with name-players hasn't the snap (or brevity) of its own coming attraction. The recipients of a deceased millionaire's will die one by one in colorful ways, with Roddy McDowall's comeuppance--squeezed to death in a purple velvet suit--being the most ridiculous. Produced on a TV-movie budget, with stars Stella Stevens, Farley Granger, Jamie Farr, Victor Buono, and McDowell looking properly embarrassed. The only cast member who gets to shine a bit is Elsa Lanchester, hamming it up as dead Arnold's sister. * from ****
