Movie Info

In this film, John Carradine plays a crotchety millionaire who wills his fortune to his estranged children. There is, of course, a proviso. His children must spend a week in Carradine's estate. Naturally, this leads to a lot of petty spitefulness, which in turn leads to murder.

Audience Reviews for Legacy of Blood

Not to be confused with "The Legacy" starring Katharine Ross, it still has a very similar plot involving guests staying in an old house where they are getting murdered one by one.
Of course, here it's so low-budget that you don't actually see the murders except with shadows and a few blood splatters. There are a couple of exceptions but they really aren't all that exciting.
There isn't much action at all as it's really just a lot of talk. The dialogue itself is woeful too and the delivery is very poor.
I have a bad feeling that this film was supposed to be a comedy but how could that be when there is nothing remotely funny in it either?

One of the most "intelligent" film ever made.
