The Ninth Guest (1934)

Columbia Pictures
Directed by R. William Neill
My rating: 2 stars out of 4
IMDb Wikipedia

Eight strangers accept invitations to a party in a posh 50th floor apartment. Instead, they find themselves captive to an unseen host who plots to kill them one-by-one through the course of the night. Their captor speaks to them through a radio and the murders happen at the top of the hour, as indicated by a huge clock. The guests begin to suspect each other, leading to more violence. The final reveal of the host is a bit of a disappointment, his motivations impossible to guess beforehand.
