Storyline

Patrick Davenant con alcuni familiari e amici si reca, dopo una festa, a visitare un vecchio teatro di proprietà della famiglia, mai usato ma tenuto sempre in ordine. I rapporti tra di loro non sono dei migliori. Arrivati vengono accolti da un uomo misterioso che, si scopre in seguito, nessuno conosce. Patrick deve sposare Kim in seconde nozze; con loro c'è anche Vivian che doveva sposare un anno prima. Sul teatro grava una maledizione da secoli secondo la quale ogni cento anni diventerà una bara per tutti coloro che vi si troveranno. Ed in effetti le porte non si aprono, il telefono non funziona e un attentato alla vita di Patrick non ha successo. Ma in seguito? Written by Baldinotto da Pistoia

Great fun!
8 February 2013 | by (Greenwich - London) – See all my reviews

Great fun! Indeed, great title, great poster, great costumes for all the ladies and great how easily they just slip off. Actually, the poster is a heavily censored and cropped impression of what really happens in the film. There are many and varied kills but the one depicted here was by far the most extreme. Saddled with the hoary old Ten Little Indians plot, we have, of course, a whole bunch of people we are not interested in and who cannot be fully explained to retain the possibility that any one of them could have killed the rest. Possibly needlessly, on top of this we have a concurrent supernatural plot suggestion, that doesn't particularly improve things. But never mind, the theatre is a wonderful setting giving endless nook and crannies, corridors and overhead and subterranean spaces for the victims to be chased and caught and spectacularly killed. The chit chat gets a bit tedious but the sudden clinches and arch performances a hoot. Must have been as much fun to make as it is to watch.
