If you were a famed mystery playwright with a devastating string of recent flops what would you do for a can't-miss thriller script? Beg for it? Pay for it? Or would you kill for it? You would if you were Sidney Bruhl the leading character in Ira Levin's dazzlingly funny deliciously scary Broadway-smash-turned-movie-hit Deathtrap. Michael Caine starts as Bruhl and Christopher Reeve stars as Bruhl's one-time student who's written a play so flawless "even a gifted director couldn't ruin it" ...and who requests Bruhl's production help. And Dyan Cannon is Bruhl's loving wife who doesn't want the student helped to an early grave. Sydney Lumet directs Deathtrap's hairpin twists with such drop-dead wit and delightful dread that you'll stop laughing only long enough to gasp in surprise.
Very witty and clever plot, horrifying and funny at the same time. Excellent performances by Michael Caine and Christopher Reeve. Read morePublished 2 days ago by Onowhereman

This movie will stand the test of time with some twists and turns in the plot. I enjoyed it as much now as when it came out in the theaters.Published 26 days ago by NaClDog
The movie itself was fun from a nostalgia standpoint (Christopher Reeve had some great roles before Superman, and this was one of them). Read morePublished 1 month ago by B.C.
Meh. It was supposed to be surprising and twisty, but honestly it was just too unbelievable. Such a shame with such a great cast.Published 1 month ago by Sharon Robinson
I am a huge fan of Michael Caine, not so much a fan of Christopher Reeve, but they were both excellent in this movie. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Heeven
