Storyline

A group is invited, under false pretenses, to an isolated hotel in the Iranian desert. After dinner, a cassette tape accuses them all of crimes that they have gotten away with. One by one they begin to die, in accordance to the Ten Little Indians nursery rhyme. After a search is made of the hotel, they realize that the murderer is one of them. A few members of the group attempt to trust each other, but the question still remains, who can one trust? And who will leave the hotel alive? Written by Nick Johansen

Quotes

Michel Raven: Well I don't know about the rest of you, but that tape didn't say any lies about me. I was coming home from a party. Late. Drunk. And I was driving fast. FAST. Two people in the road ahead. I ran over them. William and Louisa Stern. Two years married. Very sad.
Judge Arthur Cannon: Were you not charged?
Michel Raven: I had a little influence. As you know, that can help. But they punished me. They took my driving license away.

Michel Raven: Good night.

Standing up for movie
30 August 2004 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

I just wanted to stand up for this version of the movie. I've read the book 'Ten little indians' and while it's set on an island and this 1974 movie is set in a desert, I feel that it is the closest to the feel of the book out of the four (?) versions I've seen. The 1945 and the 1960's movies were too light-hearted, too fluffy. This is a scary situation, with people trapped somewhere they can't leave, and one of them is taking a perverse delight in murdering them one by one. There is no room for humour in a movie like this. The 1974 movie is dark, with no needless humour injected, and this makes it feel a lot like the book did. My only grievance with the movie, is that, like all the others, it doesn't finish in the same way as the book. I'd really like to see a version that does. Oh, and Elke Sommers clothing is hideous, but that's the passage of time, more than anything. :)
