Audience Reviews for What a Carve Up! (No Place Like Homicide!)

A horror-comedy from the UK about a guy who is down-on-his luck only to be listed in the will of a wealthy recently deceased uncle. He travels with his roommate to the will reading (they have a British Abbott and Costello thing going on). In typical fashion, the will is to be read in an isolated mansion with a group of folks who all look to benefit if their are fewer inheritors. One woman is bequeathed all the dead man's drugs, pills, serums, and hypodermic needles! The guests start to drop and the remaining ones attempt to figure out the mystery of who is commiting the murders. Very typical story (formulatic "old dark house"), done with a good amount of British humor make this one memorable. (An earlier British film, Universal horror-styled The Ghoul from 1933, was apparently based on the same story, but done with minimal humor.)


This movie has an overly used plot, but it's very funny, so I enjoyed it anyway.
