About the Movie
A social gathering is rocked to its core when host Jack accuses his best friend's wife of infidelity. But as the allegations start flying, it soon emerges that far more sinister intentions may be at play. A retro suspense thriller, the film is built primarily on well-constructed dialogue as well as proper positioning and skillful directing of actors. Paying homage to Alfred Hitchcock's Rope and Dial M for Murder with its sinister main character and single-location setting, Candlestick is a stylish throwback to vintage 1950s cinema with a contemporary relevancy.
I'll start by saying that I may very well be partial to this films style in general. The trailer sucked me in from the very beginning. It's well shot, well acted and tightly directed. Given the genre they were playing in I was especially fond of the score as well
As i'm sure many will tell you, any Clue (or murder mystery) fans will most definitely enjoy the ride. It's smart and well crafted. I'll be curious to see what other works the filmmakers have on hand or coming up.
Give it a go and see what you think for yourself. I'm sure you'll enjoy it as well.
I have to say I loved this movie!
This movie was retro yet refreshing! Great direction and performances. Felt a little like a play but in a good way. Reminded me of films like Clue.
