Storyline

A group is invited, under false pretenses, to an isolated hotel in the Iranian desert. After dinner, a cassette tape accuses them all of crimes that they have gotten away with. One by one they begin to die, in accordance to the Ten Little Indians nursery rhyme. After a search is made of the hotel, they realize that the murderer is one of them. A few members of the group attempt to trust each other, but the question still remains, who can one trust? And who will leave the hotel alive? Written by Nick Johansen

Trivia

The scenes from the Spanish-version subplot, while entirely extraneous to the plot, feature stunning indoor and outdoor vistas of landmark architecture and landscapes in Iran, as well as musical motifs by Bruno Nicolas that do not appear elsewhere in the film. See more »

Goofs

Large parts of the dialogue are lifted, whole and entire, from the original version - but not all of them. In the original, Blore advises Vera to go to her room and stay there, then later scolds her for not doing so. In this version, the second half of their exchange is repeated - but the first half isn't. So when Blore yells, "Ms. Clyde! I told you to stay in your room!", he is referencing a conversation that didn't happen. See more »

Quotes

Judge Arthur Cannon: Listen. If you are the killer, please tell me, I won't tell a soul.

Pretty good mystery
18 June 2001 | by See all my reviews

This is a pretty good one,in my opinion certainly as good as the other 3,maybe even better.Filmed in both Spain and Iran,this version takes place in the vast expanse of the desert.Perhaps because it's so 1970's,I kind of favor it.The music in this in my opinion is expertly ominous,fitting in perfectly with the various scenes which keep the viewer guessing and in a state of intrigue.People seem to judge this one negatively alongside the standards they reserved for the 1966 version,but in my opinion this '74 one more than holds its own.All I can say is that Richard Attenborough is WONDERFUL!!! Oliver Reed and Elke Sommer give stellar performances,but Attenborough takes the prize and cake in this.
