Murder Mystery #1: Murder mystery parody, CLUE

“Clue” (1985) was directed and conceptualized by Johnathon Lynn who was in collaboration with John Landis.

The film stars Tim Curry, Eileen Brennan, Colleen Camp, Bill Henderson, Howard Hesseman, Madeline Kahn, Jeffrey Kramer, Christopher Lloyd, Michael McKean, Martin Mull, Kellye Nakahara, Lee Ving, Lesley Ann Warren, and more.

It made history with the bold choice to release three different endings in theaters, so depending on what time and place you attended, the outcome could change. This was not overly successful and the film only makes sense if you see all three, but the experiment was significant none the less.

It was based on the board game Cluedo, created by Anthony E. Pratt who was holed up in his home in England during World War II when he created the game as an escape.
