A thrilling story gets told in ‘A Haunting in Venice’
I was not impressed by Murder on the Orient Express. Death on the Nile was in many ways better and was a lot of fun to watch unfold. When I heard about A Haunting in Venice I hoped it might be good. I was able to attend a screening of this film and here is what I thought of it.
