Two thrill-seeking friends Brandon Shaw (John Dall) and Phillip Morgan (Farley Granger) strangle a classmate and then hold a party for their victim’s family and friends, serving refreshments on a buffet table fashioned from a trunk containing the lifeless body. When dinner conversation revolves around talk of the ‘perfect murder,’ their former teacher (James Stewart) becomes increasingly suspicious that his students have turned his intellectual theories into brutal reality. This macabre spellbinder was inspired by a real-life case of murder.
