"HALLOWE'EN PARTY" (2010) Review

Many years have passed since I last read Agatha Christie's 1969 novel, "Hallowe'en Party". Although it is not considered one of Christie's better novels, the story possessed a style that struck me as rich and atmospheric. I never forgot it. So, when I learned about ITV's 2010 adaptation of the novel, I could not wait to see it.

Directed por Charles Palmer and adapted por actor Mark Gatiss (who appeared in 2008's "APPOINTMENT WITH DEATH"), "HALLOWE'EN PARTY" begins with mystery author Adrianne Oliver visiting a friend named Judith Butler in the small village of...

"THE HOLLOW" (2004) Review

I have never been a fã of Agatha Christie’s 1946 novel, "The Hollow". Many would find my opinion surprising, considering its reputation as one of the author’s best works and a fine example of the "country house murder" story. But I cannot help how I feel. I simply never warmed up to it.

The 1946 novel eventually became a successful Londres play in 1951. And in 2004, producers of the "Agatha Christie’s POIROT" series adapted the novel into a ninety-minute televisão movie in 2004, with David Suchet as Hercule Poirot. I have seen "THE HOLLOW" at least twice. Yet,...

If you have never read Agatha Christie's novel, "Taken at the Flood" or seen the 2006 televisão adaptation, I suggest that you read no futher. This review contains major spoilers.

"DUMB WITNESS" (1996) Review

There is a belief among fãs of the "AGATHA CHRISTIE'S POIROT" series that the episodes and televisão filmes that aired between 1989 and 2001 - ones that featured Arthur Hastings, Chief Inspector Japp and Miss limão - were mais faithful adaptations of Agatha Christie's novels that the mais recent ones that have aired since 2003. I do not know if I agree with this opinion, especially after viewing the 1996 televisão movie, "DUMB WITNESS".

Screenwriter Douglas Watkinson's script mais or less remained faithful to the 1937 novel's main narrative. Surrounded por grasping...

"MURDER ON THE LINKS" (1996) Review

I have never read Agatha Christie’s 1923 novel called "Murder on the Links". But I have seen the 1996 televisão adaptation that starred David Suchet as Hercule Poirot. On several occasions.

While on holiday in Deauville, France with his close friend, Captain Arthur Hastings, Hercule Poirot is approached por a wealthy businessman for help. Paul Renauld, whose assets include several South American business interests and the hotel where Poirot and Hastings are staying, claimed that someone – probably from South America – has made threats against his life....
