Discovering good movies, one bad movie at a time

Top 5 Murder Mysteries

The new adaptation of Murder on the Orient Express concerns – avert your eyes, if you’re spoilerphobic – a murder that is committed on the Orient Express, the famed luxury train. If you want to know whodunnit, or why they dunnit, you’ll just have to go see the movie – or watch the Oscar-winning 1974 adaptation, or read Agatha Christie’s original novel – but we reveal a different kind of secret on this episode: our favorite cinematic murder mysteries of all time. It’s wall to wall shifty butlers, untraceable poisons, and well-timed thunderstorms.
