Experience Alfred Hitchcock's masterpiece film Rear Window in a game of deduction and suspense. Carefully observe strange clues and ominous patterns in the things going on in the apartments across the way. There are parties, knives, a saw, bickering, laughing, music...and a mysterious trunk.

If a murderer is out there, you need to nail down all eight attributes of that person by the end of four rounds without them catching on to what you see and know.
