When the Clock Strikes Reviews

A confusing and misguided crime melodrama in which a handful of people are gathered at a lodge near the prison where a man is to be executed at midnight. As the clock strikes, a man rushes in to confess that he is actually the criminal and is taken into custody. Everyone left thinks of ways to get their hands on leftover money hidden away in a safe-deposit box. After innumerable back-stabbings and lies, Brown figures that the best thing to do is call in the police and let them work this mess out. Someone sure has to.
