  • Evil Under the Sun is a 1982 mystery starring Peter Ustinov as the talented and eccentric detective Hercule Poirot in a story about an island getaway that turns into a thrilling murder mystery, based on the novel of the same name by Agatha Christie. Hercule Poirot can't seem to get away from his job as an investigator, as even a holiday on a scenic island turns into a tense hunt for a killer on the loose. The film begins with Poirot being called for assistance by Sir Horace Blatt, a wealthy aristocrat. Blatt asks Poirot to investigate an expensive diamond he's recently purchased. Poirot discovers the diamond is a fake, and after some conversation, the detective agrees to accompany Blatt to an island resort where Poirot can help confront the woman responsible for the ill-advised purchase as well as enjoy the relaxing accommodations. Poirot agrees, but it's not long before someone turns up murdered and it's up to Poirot to discover the killer. Evil Under the Sun is a gripping mystery, featuring top-notch acting and directed by Guy Hamilton.moreless
