I had never heard of this movie until a few years ago and I’m so glad I did. It’s a murder mystery, and it really keeps you guessing until the very end. It’s written by Anthony Perkins, a favorite of mine, and he weaves a great web. The story starts with Sheila getting killed in a hit and run accident and we spend the rest of the movie trying to figure out whodunit. The suspects are asked on a yacht trip hosted by Sheila’s husband, where he plays a serious of games to get the guilty party to admit their wrong doing.

And of course what happens along the way is crazy! Not to mention the great 70’s outfits and sets, with Raquel Welch looking mega-babely…

It’s definitely worth checking out, it’s one of the few movies I’ve seen where you really don’t know what is going to happen until the very end!
