Haven't seen either, but Murder by death looks more promising.

From the responses about the Dutch one on the World Cup thread, I'd say Goin' South. It also wins by being substantially shorter.

(Sigh). I like this game. The choosing part initially seemed kind of pointless but seems to have evolved into something fun. Some of the movie games here are maybe too challenging for most folks but this seems a happy medium. Of course, spending half an hour reading through the previous umpteen pages so as not to repeat anything may be a drag, but we could declare an amnesty or something.
