SYNOPSIS

'The set-up is simple and yet needlessly convoluted: six characters gather at a posh mansion after receiving a mysterious invitation. They have been given aliases like Colonel Mustard (Martin Mull) and Professor Plum (Christopher Lloyd) by their ostensible host for the evening, the forebodingly named Mr. Boddy (Lee Ving). It's slowly revealed by eccentric butler Wadsworth (Tim Curry) that he has instead assembled the group there to confront them, as Mr. Boddy is the man who's been blackmailing each of them for various indiscretions. They are handed those infamous murder weapons and when the lights go out and Boddy ends up dead, it doesn't take Agatha Christie to figure out that all of them had a pretty good motive.' Exclaim
