AGATHA CHRISTIES "POIROT" - "The Hallowe'en Party" (2011)

This Countdown To Halloween Saturday Night Special is a great story by one of the masters, Agatha Christie, titled "Hallowe'en Party" that was published in 1969.

"Poirot," also known as "Agatha Christie's Poirot," was on the air in the UK from 1989 to 2013. If you were lucky, you might have caught it on PBS or A&E in the United States.

Agatha Christie's murder mysteries are just as twisted as Edgar Wallace's, and there is no way I'm going to try and explain this story to you! I don't know enough words!

But here are the basics.....................There's a Halloween party going on!

Have you ever heard of or played the game Snap-Dragon? Apparently they would fill up a bowl with brandy, and then put raisins in it, and set it on fire, and people put them in their mouths to extingush the fire. I guess it's common in Europe and I read that it was played in the U.S. on Halloween. Sounds like a good way to burn the crap out of your mouth to me.
During the game, one young lady blurts out that she had once seen a murder!

Next thing you know, somebody has drowned her in the apple-bobbing barrel!!

Time to call for help from the Belgian super sleuth, Hercule Poirot!

This show is absolutely stunningly classic to look at with shots like this!

I'm colorblind and see things different than most, but to my eye, this color and beauty of this shot looks like a classical painting!

But this show isn't just about beauty, it's also creepy as Hell and yet still manages to be kid friendly, and that's a difficult task!

"Trick or Treat!"

Killer garden, literally!

Memories of happier moments from the past can also be clues if you're Poirot.

Another gorgeous shot..................

......................Just leads to more death and despair!

What a great Halloween story, and once again, you can thank The Lord for finding it for us!
"The Hallowe'en Party has been published so many times, and almost all the books have cool covers like this!

Feeling the need? Okay then!

I have an original copy of this book. I never knew it was made into a TV show. I found it on Youtube. I'll give it a watch.
