Comment
Eight people are invited to dinner in a a penthouse where they are told they will die unless they can defeat the 9th guest who is death. After 4 of the guests are killed off one by one, the remaing start to work out what is happening. This is a variation of the isolated group of people with murky pasts being killed for their crimes by an unknown killer. The script is OK, but the Agatha Christie Ten Little Indians is a better variation on the theme.
