Hallowe'en Party was one of my most enjoyable reading experiences of an Agatha Christie novel. Even though it was one of her later mysteries, and therefore not considered to be anywhere near her best work, I felt that the creepy atmosphere and genuine horror concerning the murder of a child gave it a distinct edge that placed it among my personal favorites.

So I had a vested interest in seeing the latest David Suchet adaptation, and high-hopes that Christie's spooky ambience and chilling portrayal of the darker side to childhood would be successfully translated from book to screen. With Mark Gatiss as the screen-writer (who also penned the excellent Cat Among The Pigeons), I was pretty confident that it would at the very *least* make for an entertaining 90 minutes.

Zoe Wanamaker reprises her role as Ariadne Oliver, helping out at a children's Halloween Party when a grisly discovery is made: the body of thirteen-year old Joyce Reynolds drowned in an apple-bobbing bucket. Traumatized, she calls in her old friend Hercule Poirot to investigate the matter. There is only one clue that he can draw upon - a claim made by Joyce just before her death that she was once witness to a murder. Inquiring into deaths and missing persons in the area, Poirot draws up a list of four possible deaths that Joyce may have seen, and which may have spurred the murderer into taking decisive action against her.

Hercule Poirot is one of my favorite Christie characters...along with Ms. Marple. I think Poirot played by David Suchet is marvelous and love his depiction of the character. Hallowe'en Party is especially dear to my heart as that is my birthday and I revel in Halloween and the whole meaning of it.
This particular story was really good...very interesting and you really don't know who done it right away...it's lots of fun and I actually googled the game snip, snap dragon and it was played in England and America way back when...very interesting.
I highly recommend this movie to anyone who is a Christie and Poirot fan!

I absolutely was stunned by the ending of this movie! Made with the quality of Masterpiece Theater, very good mystery, good for a rainy night! I Absolutely Love Hercule Poirot in this movie. It is more in keeping with his character created by Agatha Christie. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

One of my favorite of all the Poirot mysteries. The pacing is good, and the plot has some unexpected twists that keep it interesting. David Suchet is excellent, as usual, in his portrayal of Poirot, and the supporting cast also does a wonderful job here. The best part for me, however, was the sheer beauty of this movie. The staging and cinematography are outstanding. It is as beautifully shot as " Murder on the Orient Express," and that is quite an accomplishment. A delight to watch over and over again.

Agatha Christie epitomizes the mystery writer and David Suchet captures Hercule Poirot perfectly. This movie was beautifully filmed with autumn colors and did not disappoint. In fact, it is one of my favorites.

I have loved Agatha Christie books since I was a child and the movies bring me great enjoyment (with a few 'what were you thinking with that rewrite' moments). Now I love David Suchet who never disappoints- he IS Poirot. Zoe Wanamaker as Ariadne Oliver always is an added bonus. She also is perfection and the relationship between the two really shines on screen- I wish she had a bigger role in this movie- as the pair of them in Mrs. McGinty's Dead is delightful.
Halloween Party is a great movie for cuddling on the couch, lights out at night. The beginning- a Halloween party, a dark and stormy night, the snap dragon game- it all sets the tone for that Agatha atmosphere you just don't get anywhere else.

Brilliant acting by the women in the cast, it's horrifying that a child is killed almost immediately. Hercule Poirot is called in to investigate. His accent is atrocious and is difficult to understand at times. He rips through people's lives easily, getting them to talk, seemingly without any problem at all. Worth watching for the scenery alone.

Loved this one! I get homesick for England and I have never been there in this lifetime. They make me feel at home there in the movie right down to no nickel or plated stuff in the films. Having a nickel allergy un the u.s. it is fun to spot brass iron stainless steel or wood in the time period lol. Again the actors and actresses are subperb and i enjoy spotting them doing very different roles and so well you have to look twice to spot them. This just relaxing and with the stress in ordinary life, I appreciate the good film.
