Murder Made Easy – USA, 2017 – reviews

‘Dinner will be killer

Murder Made Easy is a 2017 American mystery horror-thriller feature film about a dinner party at which the guests are killed.

Directed by David Palamaro from a screenplay written by Tim Davis, the movie stars Jessica Graham, Christopher Soren Kelly, Emilia Richeson, Edmund Lupinski, Sheila Cutchlow and Paul A. Rose Jr.


Best pals Joan (Jessica Graham) and Michael (Christopher Soren Kelly) invite their dearest friends over for a cordial dinner to discuss the passing of Joan’s husband, Neil. But as each guest arrives, dark secrets are revealed and murder is definitely on the menu…


“Even in its farfetched nature, Davis highlights struggles that we can all relate to when it comes to interacting with people who are very different to us. How human characteristics factor into the equation. Murder Made Easy has a quick run time, plenty of twists and turns and indie film fans will love Davis’s self-deprecating humor…” Adam the Movie God

“Once the film ends you’ll want to watch it again just to see the clues you might have missed (there are a few). Not only that you’ll be thinking about it and telling everyone you know about it. Surely there is no better sign of a great film than that? One of the best horror releases of 2017.” Carl Fisher, Games, Brrraaains & A Head-Banging Life

“You expect to have reversals and revelations in a film like this, but Palamaro and screenwriter Tim Davis still manage to fool us through some clever magician-style misdirection. It is a neat single-location thriller that will be especially entertaining for viewers that appreciate the tradition. Highly recommended…” Joe Bendel, J.B. Spins

” …this is a twisty turny murder mystery of the sort no one really does any more, unless it’s a local theater company is reviving some old-time mystery.  It is beautifully acted and expertly put together with a plotline that is going to make you wonder where the hell it is going. Trust me its a delightful place.” Steve Kopian, Unseen Films

Choice dialogue:

Michael: “We all know what happens to weak animals”
