Endless Night Reviews
A British chauffeur falls in love with an American heiress. They get married awfully fast and get the keys to the 'ideal house of tomorrow'. All does not seem right though. Murder doesn't happen until the last 15 minutes. Some old lady, though, doesn't like them on the property.
The acting is decent. There are a few jolts in the film, mainly due to weird noises in the score and some experimental visuals. That house is a lavishly decorated manor, with lovely scenery, neat little features, and the classy feel. British comfort here, which is supposed to build up tension amidst the subtly sinister tone. Riiiiiiiiiight???
But it is devoid of any suspense. The plot's pretty confusing due to its knack to jump timelines, and this may require multiple viewings. The twist was crazy and weird though I never quite understood it. Not to mention, the pace was sloooooooooooooooooow. I suppose if more energy were put into it, then it'd be a better movie.
This one is pretty dated and would appeal to a certain cult. However, I think this one needs a remake that can manage to tell Agatha Christie's tale, but without the confusion. Ok movie, but it needs some work.
