Murder by Death ★★★★

After rewatching MURDER BY DEATH last night on the new Shout Factory Shout Select Blu-ray, it occurs me that MBD is directly responsible for the creation of CLUE and we should probably spend more time worshipping it on the basis of it being weird and existing at all.

When I watched the film as a kid, it just seemed like a live action cartoon and that's inherently amusing -- but Neil Simon's script is a rather complex slapstick meta-criticism of the entire mystery genre, literary and cinematic. And that ending! WHO DOES THAT?
