Michelle Yeoh and Tina Fey Confront 'A Haunting in Venice'

So there I was, lounging on my couch, recuperating from my first (and hopefully only) bout with Covid, when a friend texted me a link to this trailer...

Little did I know Kenneth Branagh was doing another Poirot adaptation, this time based on Agatha Christie's Hallowe'en Party (yes, that apostrophe belongs there). Little did I know recent Oscar winner Michelle Yeoh was in it, playing a medium who is hired by a British woman to make contact with her dead daughter. And little did I know this was Tina-Liz-Lemon-Fey's next project! 

Needless to say, this certainly made my day. And judging by this teaser that's giving off The Conjuring vibes, the marketing folks at 20th Century Studios are attempting to lure in horror fans this time around. 

From the press release: A Haunting in Venice is set in eerie, post-World War II Venice on All Hallows’ Eve. A Haunting in Venice is a terrifying mystery featuring the return of the celebrated sleuth, Hercule Poirot. Now retired and living in self-imposed exile in the world’s most glamorous city, Poirot reluctantly attends a séance at a decaying, haunted palazzo. When one of the guests is murdered, the detective is thrust into a sinister world of shadows and secrets.
