The action of the creepy mystery “A Haunting in Venice” takes place after the Second World War in Venice, on the night of All Saints. Retired and living in exile in the most glamorous city in the world at the time, famed detective Hercule Poirot reluctantly finds himself among the attendees of a séance in a crumbling, haunted palace. When one of the guests is murdered, Poirot finds himself at the center of a sinister world of shadows and secrets.

Branagh’s film “Death on the Nile” topped the box office charts some time ago.

He previously directed “Murder on the Orient Express.” Everyone suspects everyone on the snowy train where one of the passengers is mysteriously killed. But from the very beginning it was no secret that a real constellation was gathered in the luxury express traveling through the Balkans.

Penelope Cruz, William Dafoe, Judi Dench, Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer, Daisy Ridley are just some of the stars.
