A fiendish evil lurks beneath the mist-shrouded cliffs of the fabled moors. In the form of a hellish hound, it feeds upon the trembling flesh of the heirs of Baskerville Hall. But before this savage beast can sink its teeth into the newest lord of the manor, it must pit its vicious fangs against the searing intellect of the most powerful foe it has ever encountered - the incomparable Sherlock Holmes...

Peter Cushing is a splendid Holmes and Andre Morell is the perfect Dr. Watson in this adaptation of the Conan Doyle classic from Hammer Studios. Christopher Lee co-stars as the current heir to the Baskerville estate - turning in a faultless performance. In fact, that's something that can be said about the entire production. There isn't a bad actor or corny line of dialogue in sight.

The film print is also of agreeable quality - although there is the odd speck of dust from time to time.

For those who want to see Cushing and Lee together on screen and watch the sparks fly - although this time they are on the same side - then this is a fine example. Not only that, but it is a damn fine movie too. Sadly there are no extras.
