Get some popcorn and curl up on the couch as Michael Pare and Vivica A Fox are among the guests trapped at a winery in an old time murder mystery.
The plot of the film has friends and family arriving at a winery for wedding. Just a deputy arrives to warn the group that wildfire is threatening. As the road is cut off the bride turns up dead. Forced to ump into action the deputy has to contend with clashing personalities as well as more bodies.
If you like old school murder mysteries TWISTED VINES is for you. This throw back film isn't high art but it is entertaining. It's the sort of film that 90 years ago would have been set in a old dark house during a rain storm. Here the film is set in the day time and bright daylight. Clearly the basic set up works anywhere.
What I like about the film is that the cast pretty much sells the story. Sure there is a bit of over acting (I'm looking at you Mr. Pare and Ms Fox) but for the most part it doesn't matter, you'll want to see how this plays out.
As some one who sees and ignores too many of similar films it's nice to say that this one is worth the time.
