What to watch if you like ‘Stabs in the back: The Mystery of the Glass Onion’: 3 fun movies with mysterious murders that you can enjoy streaming

For some time now we are checking a Rise in the number of murder-themed movies, investigation and mysteries to solve. A phenomenon that we can attribute to the success of ‘daggers in the back‘, who faces it in a fun and even self-conscious way to maintain a necessary freshness apart from a well-developed intrigue.

A film of this type always goes well, especially if it is shot with pleasure, and that is why there was such a desire to see it’Daggers in the Back: The Glass Onion Mystery‘. For this reason, in order not to lose enthusiasm, we rescued three films from murder mysteries with a particularly funny note that can be found streaming. Tapes from all eras with doses of guaranteed enjoyment.

‘The new case of inspector Clouseau’ (‘A Shot in the Dark’, 1964)

Direction:Blake Edwards. Distribution: Peter Sellers, Elke Sommer, Herbert Lom, George Sanders, Tracy Reed.

After the success of ‘The Pink Panther’, Blake Edwards was given the chance to make a sequel. But he not only decided to ignore the aforementioned “panther” in favor of making a new mystery around Inspector Clouseau, but he the film was not originally written for the detective. Instead, he adapts a French play with a murder at its center.

This changes the setting and the mystery to be solved for Clouseau, making a less crime film and more gruesome, with the inspector investigating the possible guilt of a young woman who may have killed her lover. The film manages to be fresher as well as darker than its predecessor, as well as devilishly funny thanks to an excellent Peter Sellers. A wonderful adventure.

‘A corpse for desserts’ (‘Murder by Death’, 1976)

A Corpse To Desserts 1976 Peter Falk

Direction:Robert Moore. Distribution: Alec Guinness, David Niven, Peter Sellers, Peter Falk, Eileen Brennan, Truman Capote.

Probably few films have marked Johnson more when it comes to making his own whodunit than ‘A corpse for desserts’, capable of making its parody of this kind of movie and at the same time work perfectly as a. Creating fabulous pastiches of different memorable fictional investigators, he creates an interesting constellation of detectives for a wild case.

A true cult film, with a taste for the grotesque and great intelligence in everything it claims. Neil Simon’s script is delicious, and Robert Moore finds the best way to make it work. It ends up being rounded off thanks to a great cast that is completely delivered to the proposal, as delicious as twisted.

‘The game of suspicion (Cluedo)’ (‘Clue’, 1985)

The Suspicion Game Clue 1985

Direction: Jonathan Lynn. Distribution: Eileen Brennan, Tim Curry, Madeline Kahn, Christopher Lloyd, Lesley Ann Warren.

They are no longer so peculiar about mounting movies around such particular intellectual properties as board games, but it was quite remarkable to mount one around ‘Cluedo’. But, in part, it had the perfect basis to be a movieplaying with the keys to the Agatha Christie brand mystery with its multiple plot twists and twisted and perfectly suspicious characters (after all, it takes elements from ‘Ten little blacks’).

Sharing script duties with John Landis, Jonathan Lynn creates a fun post-dessert entertainment session. With an excellent, well-cast cast and parodic ambitions, he picks up on the chaotic and accusatory nature of the game while continuing to make a fabulous intrigue that sustains the whole. Totally cute from start to finish.
