Directed by Thomas Sainsbury Written by Louis Mendiola

Mystery! Murder! Mayhem!

When a forgotten movie star turns up dead, private detective Richard Marlowe has to follow all possible clues to uncover the mystery behind the movie star’s death. During his investigation he will cross paths with the likes of B-grade film director Ed Wood, buxom TV star Vampira, as well as the mysterious Russian inventor Leon Theremin and his ethereal music. A web of mystery, murder and mayhem, PLAY ME DEADLY! will take you on a journey into a world of music, monsters, aliens, washed out movie stars and classic Golden Age Hollywood.

It's the attack of the invisible thing! Now presented in AURAL-VISION!
