What happens next makes this perhaps the year's most hard-to-believe melodrama...

Audience Reviews for Please Murder Me


In this low budget thriller - that comes close to old television movies quality ( a good many of the cast actually did move to working television) - a savvy defense attorney is the last guy to figure out that the woman he just got off from a murder charge is actually guilty. So he concocts some only-in-the-movies scheme to have her murder him, too, so that she'll finally get caught. What?! Did you stop reading when you read what his genius plan is??? Yeah, well I don't blame you. It's as hokey as can be. the cast though is good enough to bypass the incredulity of the script and watch the thing through. It won't stay with you long though.

Low budget reworking of Double Indemnity works better than it should thanks to the quality of its cast. Burr, Angela Lansbury and John Dehner all give performances better than the ordinary script warrants.
