The Best Mumbo-Jumbo Hollywood Has Ever Cooked Up!
Taking Agatha Christie's "Ten Little Indians", and giving it a satanic twist, really livens up the original story about a bunch of people who end up at a mansion, in this case to inherit the legacy of the owner. Katharine Ross and Sam Elliott star as an interior decorator and her husband hired to go to England to redesign a house. Upon arriving they rent a Motorcycle and sidecar and are almost killed when a rolls royce almost collides with them. The owner of the car invites them to his mansion for tea while the cycle is repaired. Little do they know this is the same man that has brought them to England. The next morning 5 people land by helicopter on the estate lawn. Each wears the same ring on their finger. When one of the newcomers a championship swimmer, drowns in the pool, something isn't right. Later that night Katharine Ross is summoned upstairs to receive the "blessing of the ring", by the very man who invited them to come and is now dying upstairs and looks to be much older when involved in the accident the day before. Now they are trapped in the house, each of the guests dies one by one. Each has sold his sold to the devil and only one can inherit the "Legacy". The best mumbo jumbo Hollywood has ever served up. Not dated at all, and the theme song by Kikki Dee is terrific! DON'T MISS THIS ONE!
