Poll: Mystery, Suspense, and Detective Mystery Parodies

The word “Parody” means a humorous exaggerated imitation or ode to a writer, artist, person, or genre. These are comedies that parody mysteries, suspense (with a mystery or detective story in it aka, you know who the killer is before the detective does) and detective mysteries. Also by the word “mystery”, ghost stories too are included since some of the classic ghost stories had a mystery story that needed to be figured out in them, like the serious stories “The Turn Of The Screw”, and “The Uninvited” (1944) and “The Uninvited” (2009). (Two different ghost stories with the same title). Which of these movies parodying mystery, detective, and suspense movies is the best? Follow funny clues here to discuss it.

P.S. Since three of the entries are based on the same play and I wanted the people to know that, I had included all the “based on” credits here. Why single out just three films and exclude all the others? Besides, it promotes reading too, if people are interested in reading the source material.
