Reviews
Mine: A fascinating blend of suspense and dark humor. The stageyness of the filming helps to increase the tension. The strange homosexual subtext also adds to the blend. A triumph of direction.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Two young men strangle their "inferior" classmate, hide his body in their apartment, and invite his friends and family to a dinner party as a means to challenge the "perfection" of their crime.
