Killing it on TheArchive!

Have you seen A Murderous Affair starring Virginia Madsen?  First of all, it features Johnny Roastbeef Williams. Enough said. Anybody want a sandwich? But then it also features William H. Macy. Now, enough said. And it used to be in glorious SD. Until TheArchive made it available in HD. And for free no less.... Old school SD trailer for an HD film! Nice.

Also features: Natalie Knepp, Billy Wirth,  Annabella Sciorra,  Lou Martini, Jr.,  Jake Robards,  Anthony Gallo Alto was always intentionally a movie to make people laugh, and through humor, help heal the wounds that separate us, particularly from those we love. In the end, I wanted to ma
