Suggested correction: If Mrs. White was indeed the killer, she could have followed Yvette, then gone into the room where they meet before her. The screaming has stopped before Yvette actually gets inside the room.

That would be impossible. There is no way that Mrs. White could have murdered Yvette because Yvette is seen running down the stairs while Mrs. White is still heard screaming upstairs. Add to the fact that the power to the house had been shut off leaving it in complete darkness, Mrs. White had no way of seeing where she was going and would most likely keep bumping into things. Plus, when Yvette gets to the billiard room, the murderer is already inside waiting for her.

Suggested correction: Mrs. White is not screaming when Yvette is walking into the room (where she is killed) only while Yvette is running down the stairs. Yvette pauses for a brief moment to look into the dining room, then proceeds to the billiard room. There are many secret passageways in the home, and one upstairs could have led into the billiard-room.

Suggested correction: She was shot, not switched off. She likely didn't die instantly. It's perfectly reasonable that she would move her arm as she was dying.

She died instantly, that is why she collapsed instantly. I am still wondering why they didn't make it look like a real shot, and have blood around the area she was shot at? They made it look as though she was wearing a bulletproof vest and was shot. You can see silver, no blood.

Continuity mistake: When Professor Plumb picks up Ms Scarlett on the roadside, they drive away in his black car. Moments later they arrive at the mansion in her scarlet colored car.

Suggested correction: First, Professor Plum doesn't have a black car. But you can tell that's it's Plum's car when they arrive because of the paneling and the rooftop. And it's not red, it's purplish (a plum color).

Trivia: The producer's first choice for the role of Ms. Scarlett was Carrie Fisher, but she was unable to sign onto the film because she'd recently admitted herself to a rehab facility to battle drug addiction.

Chosen answer: Tim Curry (as Wadsworth) states he knew about the secret passages because the house belongs to a friend of his. Tim Curry (as Mr. Boddy) says at the end of the movie that they "Could stack the bodies in the cellar and could all leave one by one." Which infers that Mr. Boddy has no intention of returning to the house. Either way, there is no definite way to tell who the house belongs to considering all the lying going on.
