It's been a year since Joan's (Jessica Graham) husband Neil has died,
and now she and her best friend/maybe lover Michael (Christopher Soren
Kelly) have invited Neil's closest friends to commemorate the occasion and
also cheer up Joan. The first one around is elderly Marcus, with whom the
the discussion turns heated only occasionally - until he topples over,
dead ... and neither Joan and Michael are surprised, as it turns out
they've poisoned him. The other guests (Emilia Richeson, Daniel Ahearn,
Sheila Cutchlow) don't fare much better, and it eventually becomes clear
Joan and Michael somehow want to avenge Neil, as Joan feels all of his
closest friends have somehow wronged him. But once they're all gone, Joan
and Michael turn on one another. And when a police officer (Paul A. Rose
jr) turns up the situation gets completely out of hands - but not in the
way you might suspect ...
Murder Made Easy is a fun film
ideed, playing a nice riff on the classic murder mystery (even if it gives
away the killers early and only keeps you guessing about their motives),
combining (like the best films of the genre) murder and drama with a fair
helping of comedy, and treating the whole thing as light-footed as can be.
Plus, despite being confined to just one set mostly, dynamic enough
direction and camerawork keep the movie from ever seeming stagey. And a
bunch of fun characters played by a solid cast really rounds out a fun
piece of genre cinema.
