The Glassed Coffin
28 March 2009 | by See all my reviews

When the exotic millionaire Charles Braling (Dan O'Herlihy) a.k.a. Robot Man brings all his savings to his manor and builds a glassed coffin, his greedy brother Richard Braling (Denholm Elliott) mocks him. Charles dies and in the will, Richard may have the mansion and all his savings if he finds where it is hidden. Richard seeks the money in the coffin and finds a tragic surprise.

"The Coffin" is quite silly but entertains. The surprise that the ambitious and mean Richard Braling finds in the coffin is darkly funny. My vote is eight.
