Trivia

The film was one of a number of pictures, mostly comedies, made and released between the mid-1970s and mid-1980s, that revived the old dark house mansion movie. The films include Clue (1985), Haunted Honeymoon (1986), Neil Simon's Murder by Death (1976), The Spiral Staircase (1975), The Cat and the Canary (1978), House of the Long Shadows (1983) and Kenny Everett's Bloodbath at the House of Death (1984).

Goofs

When Aunt Kate slides down the banister of the grand stairs in the foyer, they creak as if wood, however the banisters are clearly marble. One may, however, assume this to be artistic licence for the benefit of humour. See more »

Just brilliant!
22 March 2001 | by (Annalong, N. Ireland) – See all my reviews

Another film which no-one else seems to like, but which I find enjoyable. I think some people should give this picture a second chance. Gene Wilder plays a neurotic radio star called Larry Abbott, and on the eve of his wedding to co-star Vicky Pearle (the late Mrs. Wilder, Gilda Radner) his memories of a childhood trauma cause him to experience bizarre mood swings. His psychiatrist uncle arranges for him to spend the weekend at his aunt's Gothic mansion. The whole bizarre family gathers and a series of madcap events occur as a mysterious killer tries to bump Wilder off to get the family fortune. Wilder is not as funny as he usually is. He only really shines with the 'legs' joke in the cellar, but his co-stars generate a lot of smiles, especially the dragged-up Dom DeLuise as Great Aunt Kate, Bryan Pringle as the alcoholic butler Pfister and Gilda Radner herself raises mucho smiles. A young Jonathan Pryce is suitably hissable as bad guy Charlie. John Morris' music score is as excellent as ever as are the sets by Terence Marsh (THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION) who also co-wrote the script with Wilder. Just give it a chance.
