The Murders in the Rue Morgue is a film that is both mysterious and grisly; showing the murders of a mother and daughter which leave the police investigators confused and puzzled. What makes this film interesting, besides the story itself, is that during the story, few clues were left behind and there simply was no way for the killer to come in or leave. The killer was not seen by anyone and there is only one person who can solve the crime, a man who has been released from the police department.

April 28, 2003
Claire (Rebecca De Mornay) hopes that the case will pique her father's interest, for Auguste Dupin (George C. Scott), once France's finest detective, has lost his sense of purpose since his enforced retirement from the police force. But though the mysterious killings would have intrigued him in the old days, Dupin is at first indifferent to the case. He is galvanized into action, however, when Claire's fiancé, Dolph, is arrested for the murders on the grounds that he was the last person to see the two women alive. All of Dupin's old instincts resurface as he determines to solve the mystery of the murders in the rue Morgue. Perceiving that this is indeed an unusual case, Dupin uses his extraordinary powers of observation to piece the evidence together. Acting on an improbable hunch, he places an ad in the "lost and found" section of the newspaper, and waits for the killer to come to him. Dupin's hunch proves correct in a remarkable and surprising climax. Delighted that his powers of perception haven't failed him, Dupin has identified the extraordinary killer, and captured him. The Prefect of Police has no choice but to reinstate him, and a grateful Dupin is delighted to accept the offer.
