Synopsis

Mortimer Brewster (played by Cary Grant) gets a nasty shock when he drops in on a pair of elderly aunts in this spooky but brilliantly funny black comedy. Dotty spinsters Abby and Martha Brewster are pillars of the local community - but they're also serial killers who love nothing more than to poison lonely old gentlemen callers with their homebrewed elderberry wine and then bury the bodies in their basement. Director Frank Capra balances the quick-fire gags and Gothic chills with a masterly touch.

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
