Murder By Death

The world's greatest detectives have been invited to dinner. But when murder is on the menu, who will make it to dessert? The isolated mansion of eccentric millionaire Lionel Twain is the setting for this twisted puzzler. Twain informs his guests that one of them will be murdered at the stroke of midnight. The pay-off: $1 million to whoever lives through the night. An hilarious whodunit that pokes fun at the murder/mystery and some of the most popular super sleuths to have left their fingerprints on the silver screen. Written by Neil Simon and boasting a stellar cast.
