It Was a Dark and Stormy Night

Can one tell by looking at a person whether he or she might be a killer or not? I don't watch television news programs very often because all the tragedy they illuminate is terribly depressing, but once in a while I do. It always fascinates me when the friends of a demented killer are interviewed and they tell us that the killer was always a kind and gentle person and they could never believe that the killer would do such a terrible thing. Are angry and demented people difficult to spot? In this murder thriller it isn't very difficult to spot the killer . . . . Laurence Harvey, as farm boy Ned, speaks and looks like the classic movie demented killer with every word and glance. His dialogue, as well as the lighting and camera effects are dark and menacing from beginning to end. This threw me off for a bit, because I thought that maybe the author would trick us into thinking that Ned was going to commit murder, while the real killer would be someone else, but . . . . Spoiler Alert . . . Ned will do the deed . . . No surprises here. I watched to the end to see if Ned would indeed walk free or be caught, because he sets up a really dandy fall guy . . . . His younger brother Frankie. Ned needs to get rid of Grandma and Frankie so that he can own the farm and with the money that the farm will create he will capture the heart of Joan, the spicy blonde who likes Ned . . . and Tony . . . . and who knows who else. His brother Frankie, played by Trader Faulkner, is the perfect dunce to frame for killing granny. You see, Frankie has terrible dreams, and sometimes he walks in his sleep . . . . Frankie also collects knives . . . and sometimes he walks in his sleep with his knives . . . See where we are headed, folks? It is a dark and stormy night with loud claps of thunder rolling across the sky when Ned does the deed, and Frankie is the only suspect that everyone thinks could have or would have done in poor old granny while having a nightmare. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
