Title - Clue 

Year of release - 1985

Genre - Drama/Thriller

Length - 1 hour 35 minutes

Rating - PG

Director - Jonathan Lynn

Writer(s) - John Landis, Jonathan Lynn and Anthony E Pratt

Who is in it? - Tim Curry as Wadsworth, Eileen Brennan as Mrs Peacock, Madeline Khan as Mrs White, Christopher Lloyd as Professor Plum and Colleen Camp as Yvette to name a few

What's it about? - Six strangers who are being balck mailed are brought together at a dinner party where the host who funny enough is also the blackmailer is mysteriously murdered followed by the murder of the cook. The group along with the butler and the maid are forced to search the house to uncover who has killed, what implement was used to kill them and also in what room. A suspense and mystery filled film version of the classic game of Clue/Cluedo.

Is it any good? - This is a very mysterious film full of thrills and suspense. It is very well made for its time and the acting by all cannot be faulted. My only gripe with this film is it is filmed in a lot of darkened rooms which does aid the suspense but doesn't enhance the viewing pleasure.

Why should I watch it? - Is a good watch to pass over an hour an a half on a rainy day.

How do you rate it overall? - 6/10
