Movie Info

Writer/director Larry Blamire (The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra, Trail of the Screaming Forehead) returns to the helm with this parody of 1930s-era old dark house films, presented in glorious black and white, and featuring every character stereotype and story cliché that kitsch fans have come to associate with these estate-bound frighteners.

An amazing tribute to the "old dark house" films of the early years of Hollywood (eg. The Bat Whispers, The Cat and the Canary, The Old Dark House, etc - all of which I've reviewed). Many people who don't know one another show up for a nighttime reading of a will in a large mansion. Some of them start to die as suspicion is is cast on the different remaining hopeful beneficiaries of the will. Definitely lovingly made as the creators (cast and crew from Lost Skeleton of Cadavara) sure knew the source material well! (Clue and Murder by Death are other film examples which use this trope.)

Hilarious and entertaining. Pokes fun at classic dark house movies while it becomes a classic its self. Very humorous and enjoyable.

Blamire and Co. return for yet another old movie spoof. It seems that their style has been firmly grounded in the comedy in an old style, as opposed to the more straight comedy by scenario and dialogue than by the joke oriented scripts they've begun to produce. I don't think thats an entirely bad thing, as the jokes tend to be pretty funny. I just enjoyed the comedy in Trail of the Screaming Head and Lost Skeleton of Cadavra a little more. The style is great, and the movie is a pretty solid comedy for the fan of cinema.
