Three Cases of Murder Reviews

  • Nov 05, 2015

    The murder-horror stories are not that interesting, although the best one comes first so it's as strong as start as the film can get. Orson Welles in the last story is also good value with his character.

    Three various witty and entertaining tales of mystery: two supernatural cases and one classic "whodunit". The first story is the best of all three, taking place inside of an art museum, and then in the paintings themselves. A macabre ghost story involving antiques, antiquarians, and murderous taxidermists. The other two stories are unable to carry the weight of the first, however they are entertaining enough, considering their short length. An interesting Hitchcock-esque introduction with guest narration by Orson Welles. Three different stories, three different directors, harmoniously interwoven into one hundred minutes of suspense.

    Cult 50s three story anthology. The final story features Orson Welles and is a fine adaption of a Somerset Maugham short story whilst the first segment is bizarre and unsettling in a kind of "Dead of Night" way. Every now and then, Brit cinema throws up these weird little vignettes that totally go against what they were producing at the time. Anyone with an interest in supernatural cinema should pick this one up as it is a forgotten classic.
