This film was made and first released about five years after its source novel of the same name by Richard Condon was first published in 1974. The film, like the novel, parallels the real life assassination of American President John F. Kennedy and its surrounding conspiracy theories. See more »

An assassinated president's younger brother tumbles into an Alice in Wonderland world as he searches for the real killer.
Winter Kills is a wild, breakneck ride, impossible not to enjoy if you can muster up a two hour attention. Dullards who like to browse or half-watch will be quickly mystified and thus bored, but this film rewards those who make the investment. An excellent, creepy movie--funny and insightful, particularly relevant in these strange and disturbing days. John Huston gives a great over-the-top performance that seems more like a cartoon version of himself than the Joe Kennedy caricature he is meant to be. Tony Perkins is the embodiment of everyone's paranoid suspicions about who really runs things. Karl Rove must have sat spellbound in the theater as a young homunculus, taking notes as he ate his popcorn. Bizarre cameos and way inside references provide the icing on the cake.
