Luddy Dublin has spent thirty years in a Nashville mental hospital, after murdering her domineering mother, who mutilated her while she was young and pregnant in 1943. Now released, she finds a new home at the sprawling plantation of Delilah Charles, the wheelchair-bound matriarch of an internecine household which includes philanthropist (and heroin addict) Alonzo, failed financier Morgan, alcoholic daughter Grace, and a host of others all impatient for Delilah to die so they can get their hands on her money. This "deathwatch" has been going on for two years, and Delilah shows no signs of expiring. At a grand dinner she announces she has modified her will to bequeath each of them no more than five thousand dollars, when the estate is worth millions. Then she exhibits some moldering currency and reveals she has discovered the hiding place of her late husband's "racing money" from the 1930s -- $600,000-worth. She found this legendary sum -- her family believes -- because she is dotty; they've seen her speaking to her husband's ghost via an imposing oil painting of him which hangs in her chambers. Soon enough the competition for the hidden money begins, and bodies start piling up. In the stable. In the smokehouse. In the pool. In an unmarked grave in the yard. In the family crypt. And all the murders have been committed by someone with an axe -- the same weapon Luddy used to kill her mother. But even though the real killer is trying his or her damndest to implicate her, Luddy knows she is no longer insane ... especially when she becomes the final target.

Ratings explained: 

All films are rated for audio and video these can be found in the specifications in product descriptions.

Everyone rates in different ways and what maybe an 8 to me might be a 6 or 9 to you so please bear in mind that they are there as a rough guide only.

A rating of 8.5 will normally be direct from a VHS master or equivalent

9 upwards will be from good quality TV broadcasts, screeners etc.

8 and below will be from 2nd  or even 3rd generation prints from all types of master.

Fullscreen & widescreen titles are marked with  a W or F or some 16:9 or 4:3

Widescreen can mean anything from a slight scope to 16:9 anamorphic. We try and mention this in descriptions when we can.

Every title on the site is region free so no matter where in the world you live you should have no problems playing any of our discs. Your only requirement is a DVD player capable of receiving a PAL and NTSC signal, about 99% of European players have this facility, the rest of the world check the net for compatible players.
