Mystery, Suspense, and Detective Mystery Parodies
The word “Parody” means a humorous exaggerated imitation or ode to a writer, artist, person, or genre. These are comedies that parody mysteries, suspense (with a mystery or detective story in it aka, you know who the killer is before the detective does) and detective mysteries. Also by the word “mystery”, ghost stories too are included since some of the classic ghost stories had a mystery story that needed to be figured out in them, like the serious stories “The Turn Of The Screw”, and “The Uninvited” (1944) and “The Uninvited” (2009). (Two different ghost stories with the same title). Which of these movies parodying mystery, detective, and suspense movies is the best? Follow funny clues here to discuss it. P.S. Since three of the entries are based on the same play and I wanted the people to know that, I had included all the “based on” credits here. Why single out just three films and exclude all the others? Besides, it promotes reading too, if people are interested in reading the source material.

Best B&W Films of the 80s
From the 70s onward, with the vast majority of films being shot in color, it has become an artistic and/or stylistic choice to present a film in black and white.

Which of these films made most effective use of its black and white presentation? Discuss here.

Hitchcock Scenes that Give You Vertigo
Acrophobia, or fear of heights, is explicitly mentioned in Vertigo. However, director Alfred Hitchcock was notorious for using altitudes in other movies as well.

From these Hitchcock scenes involving heights, abysses, and falls, which most likely gives you vertigo? SPOILERS ahead! Discuss here Thank you urbanemovies for contributions to the options!
25 Acting Oscar-Nominations at the Age of 25 ...
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, IMDb! (PS: THIS IS NOT A 'FAVORITE MOVIE' POLL) Would you believe it but by a delightful coincidence, 25 actors (in fact 22 actresses and 3 actors) have been nominated to an acting Oscar in the year of their 25th birthday, and seven of them won. This called for a poll, but not any question for that poll. There's one extremely popular movie from IMDb Top 250 and most of the movies listed wouldn't stand a chance in a vote of popularity, so the question is : Which of these performances, and subsequently movies, would you be the most curious or eager to DISCOVER if you were given the chance to pick one? Discuss here PS: the years are not the years of release, but nominations, and of course, they had to be alive that year, this is why James Dean is absent from the list, as he died at the age of 24.
