When the imperious, embittered Mrs. Bramson learns that her young maid Dora is pregnant, she summons the child’s presumed father to her bungalow. The young man, Dan, is charming but mysterious. Could he be responsible for the recent murder and beheading of a local woman, and could Mrs. Bramson be his next victim? Skilfully, Dan insinuates himself into Mrs. Bramson’s affections and attempts to seduce her sceptical niece, Olivia. Despite strong suspicions of Dan’s diabolical intentions, Olivia finds herself attracted to, and fascinated by, the young man.

Synopsis

The Effect is set during a clinical trial where paid volunteers test new pharmaceutical drugs in hopes of finding a cure for depression. Under the supervision of Dr. Lorna James, two patients, Connie and Tristan, are tested in more ways than one. Their attraction to each other becomes increasingly passionate and out of control as the dosage of the drug gets higher. The question is whether the growing intensity between the two is a side effect of the drug or real. Throughout the trial, opposing views within the medical profession are presented through Dr. James, the physician in charge, and the Pharma company doctor Toby Sealey. The sudden and illicit romance between Connie and Tristan forces the supervising doctors to face off over the ethical consequences of their work.

The Ladykillers is a classic thriller farce set in 1950s London, England. A sweet little old lady, alone in her house, is pitted against a gang of criminal misfits.

Posing as amateur musicians, Professor Marcus and his gang rent a ‘rehearsal room’ in the lopsided house of sweet but strict Mrs Wilberforce. The villains plot to involve her, unwittingly, in Marcus’ brilliantly conceived heist job. But, when Mrs Wilberforce becomes wise to their ruse, Marcus concludes there’s only one way to keep the old lady quiet. With only her parrot, General Gordon, to help her, Mrs Wilberforce is alone with five desperate men. Who will be forced to face the music?
