Everybody loves a good crime thriller. Look at what rates, always, even today especially from the couch! So now it’s time to step out and enjoy big screen crime with one of the great crime writers and on screen, from a time when the craft lay in performance, direction and production, not in digital effects and post production gloss.

The Brunswick Picture House is bringing back 4 of the best Agatha Christie crime thrillers, all digitally re-mastered,  for a monthly Murderous Brunch, BROUGHT TO YOU BY THE LADIES OF THE BRUNSWICK HEADS CWA. This month of August, Death on the Nile.

Linnet Doyle is fleeing the jilted lover of her newlywed husband. When they board a cruise boat on the Nile to escape, they find her nemesis already on board and not the only person who might want her dead. Can Poirot find the killer or killers, before the ship docks?

“What a cast! ‘Murder on the Orient Express’ was my favourite Agatha Christie film adaptation, until I saw ‘Death on the Nile’. The acting, the story, the twist, the suspense! Everything about this film is spectacular.

‘Death on the Nile’ is a masterpiece of the mystery genre. It will keep anyone who loves a good ‘Whodunnit’ extremely entertained. With an ensemble cast to die for, great music, amazing cinematography and a brilliant story, it’s one of the most underrated gems.”
