Murder comes home to the Royal George. Two college students in 1920s London commit murder and host a party for the victim’s friends with his hidden body as the centerpiece … just to see if they can pull it off. Masterfully written, this gripping psychological thriller — directed for the silver screen by Alfred Hitchcock — will have you on the edge of your seat. Can they hold their nerve? Can you?
