Often overrated version of Agatha Christie's play in which a group of people with no discernible connections are invited to a remote island mansion by an unknown host, only to be murdered one by one. The macabre humour is the best thing about the movie, with the suspense rarely tightening the screws and some of the performances (Fitzgerald in particular) tending towards cartoonish caricature. Enjoyable, though, which is more than can be said for the 1965 (as Ten Little Indians) and 1974 remakes.

A nifty little whodunit that will be enjoyed by viewers who are comfortable with black and white movies. Many of the plot devices have become cliches, but don't blame the original. Near perfect for those of us who like British mysteries. If you gotta have special effects, go to the multiplex.

This movie is so awful and nothing like the book. I would not recommend it; you will be bored to death with thinking how terrible the 'visual effects' are, and how bad the acting is.
