Palamaro scripted Murder Made Easy with Tim Davis, crafting a film that has the following synopsis: Pals Joan and Michael host an elaborate dinner party for their best friends on the anniversary of the death of Joan’s husband.

Jessica Graham, Christopher Soren Kelly, Daniel Ahearn, Emilia Richeson, Edmund Lupinski, Sheila Cutchlow, and Paul Rose Jr. star.
Speaking with Dread Central in 2018, Palamaro revealed that “the three biggest influences on Murder Made Easy are Sleuth, Death Trap and Alfred Hitchcock’s Rope. They were all staged plays before they were adapted into films. Rope was the main influence by far – it’s one of my favorite Hitchcock films. The twisty-turny style of murder mystery that these films did so well is what we were going for with Murder Made Easy. … We knew that we wanted to infuse Murder Made Easy with clever twists and turns but also with humor as the subject matter could get pretty dark. We felt that it needed humor to lighten up the mood and give the audience a bit of a release from time to time. Pulling that off is really tricky and we knew we had a high standard to live up to with films like Rope, Deathtrap, and Sleuth. All of those films have some really clever dark humor in them. So, Tim and I spent a lot of time on the comedy that’s in Murder Made Easy.“
Palamaro previously directed the music documentary In Heaven There Is No Beer. He hasn’t directed a follow-up to Murder Made Easy yet, but he has been working on other projects as a producer and editor.
