Completely forgotten and overlooked, this is a murder-mystery par excellence.
Not generally a favourite genre of mine, I stumbled across this movie on TV late one night years ago and never forgot it. I then managed to track it down on an ancient VHS quite recently and watched it again. It was every bit as good as I remembered.
No special effects, no overblown budgets. Just a cracking script, superb performances, tight and efficient direction and one of the best twists ever.
An absolute masterclass in small budget movie-making.
