For some time we have been doing an investigation Increase in the number of murder-themed films, to investigate and solve mysteries. A phenomenon to which we can attribute the success of ‘Punales por el Espalda’, which tackles it in a funny and self-conscious way to maintain an essential freshness in addition to a well-developed intrigue.
This kind of movie always goes well, especially if it’s fun to shoot and that’s why there was so much desire to see ‘Knives in the Back: The Mystery of the Glass Onion’. For this reason, in order not to lose enthusiasm, we rescued from three films Murder Mysteries With One Particularly Strange Note Which can be found streaming. Tapes for all ages with guaranteed enjoyment.
‘The New Case of Inspector Clouseau’ (‘A Shot in the Dark’, 1964)
direction: Blake Edwards. Department: Peter Sellers, Elke Sommer, Herbert Lom, George Sanders, Tracy Reid.

A true cult film, with a taste for the strange and great intelligence in everything it claims. Neil Simon’s screenplay is delicious, and Robert Moore seems to find the best way to make it work. It ends up being great thanks to a great cast that is perfectly delivered on offer, as delicious as twisted,
‘The Game of Suspicion (Cludo)’ (‘Clue’, 1985)
direction: Jonathan Lin. Department: Eileen Brennan, Tim Curry, Madeline Kahn, Christopher Lloyd, Leslie Ann Warren.
They’re not so wimpy about making movies around particular intellectual properties like board games anymore, but mounting one around ‘Cludo’ was remarkable enough. But, in part, it was the perfect basis for being a moviePlaying with the keys to the Agatha Christie brand mystery, with its many plot twists and turns and thoroughly questionable characters (after all, it does take elements from ‘Ten Little Blacks’).
Sharing script duties with John Landis, Jonathan Lynn makes for a fun post-dessert entertainment session. With a good cast and parodic ambitions, it taps into the chaotic and accusatory nature of the game, while continuing to make a film out of it. a brilliant intrigue that maintains the whole, Absolutely adorable from start to finish.
