Fascinating Murder Mystery
17 March 2002 | by (San Gabriel, California) – See all my reviews

Very 70's film, but a very, very clever murder puzzle mystery. Familiar cast of faces, and lots of clues, games, questions, and red herrings. Like James Coburn says in the movie, you will be able to figure it out if you just stay put.

Fashions by Joel Schumacher too!!

An excellent choice for murder mystery fans.
