Ten Little Indians (1965)

Seven Arts Pictures
Directed by George Pollock
My rating: 2.5 stars out of 4
(DVD, Warner Bros.)

Ten strangers are summoned to a remote Alpine lodge by an unseen host. They quickly realize it's all just a set up for his insane plan to murder each of them for perceived injustices in their past. When the body count starts to mount, a search of the house turns up nothing, and it dawns the killer is posing as one of the survivors. The classic Agatha Christie story is a mildly successful rehash of 1945's And Then There Were None (set on an island instead of a mountain lodge), with some irritating characters (Fabian, thankfully the first to go), and an impossible-to-guess resolution to the mystery.
