However, viewers will be curious to learn: in A Haunting in Venice, who is the killer? Read on for all the information you require regarding the ghost movie because we are here to help you solve the puzzle. Major A Haunting in Venice spoilers are forthcoming.
Who’s the killer in A Haunting in Venice?
In a startling turn of events, Rowena Drake (Kelly Reilly), the victim’s mother, is revealed to be the murderer in A Haunting in Venice after she unintentionally poisoned her daughter and staged the death to appear as a suicide.
Yes, the cast member from Yellowstone was the murderer all along! (Typical Beth Dutton) You may be curious as to how or why Rowena would murder her own cherished daughter. Let’s provide a little more perspective, shall we?
In order to determine if a seance is real or phoney, Hercule Poirot (Kenneth Branagh) is coerced into attending it. It turns out that Rowena Drake contacted the enigmatic medium Mrs Reynolds (Michelle Yeoh) to try to discover what had happened to her cherished daughter after she was discovered thrown from the window into the canal below.
The daughter’s spirit comes to life during the seance and discloses that she was murdered, contrary to the first determination that it was a suicide. As you may expect, numerous detective hijinks follow. The participants are required to establish their innocence in order to escape being eliminated one by one by the vengeful spirit…or deadly guest—who has trapped them in the mansion overnight as a storm rages.
By the end of the movie, Poirot had everything figured out. The daughter, Alicia, was set to wed Maxime, a handsome young man. When her daughter and her fiancé argue and she returns home, Rowena, driven insane by jealousy, seizes the chance to restrain her. Rowena gently begins to sedate Alicia with contaminated tea while using honey made from poisonous flowers she cultivated in her rooftop garden.
Alicia is traumatised and confined to bed by the poison’s images and hallucinations. As a result, Rowena is able to take care of her and keep her and Maxime apart. All of this, however, goes horribly wrong when Rowena retires for the evening and Alicia’s nurse, who is ignorant of the poisoned honey, prepares her a tea that leads to an overdose and death.
