When Old Man Baskerville dies, supposedly scared to death & rumours of the curse of the Baskervilles & the hellhound who gets them re-arise, Serlock Holmes (Peter Cushing) & Dr.Watson (André Morell) come to town from London to guard the life of the last of the Baskervilles (Christopher Lee). After several attempts are made on his life, & another man, an escaped convict obviously mistaken for him is killed by a hound, Holmes once again is able to unmask the hellhound as an ordinary - but still mighty fierce - hound, & identify the killer as Ewen Solon, a believed lost heir of the Baskervilles.

 

Even over 40 years later, this one still remains the definitive adaptation of the Sherlock Holmes novel - & among others, Paul Morrisey & Douglas Hickox both tried their hands on it. That might be because Terence Fisher was the perfect choice to film it, he did very much accentuate the horror elements, giving a spooky atmosphere to the proceedings you don't normally get in whodunit-thrillers - though not even that would explain the fact why the killers, obviously doing it for money, had to revert to ritualistic killings - & his fast paced direction makes good use of the moor, the fog, the old darik house, all tried & true trademarks of your gothic horror movie (Fisher by the way, was at this time at the height of Hammer's gothic wave, having made in the last couple of years Curse of Frankenstein and Dracula (both also with Cushing & Lee) plus The Revenge of Frankenstein (only with Cushing) and would, later that year, also make The Mummy (yes, with Cushing & Lee), all landmark movies in their own right).

All performances won't spoil the fun, either, with Cushing proving to be the ideal choice for Conan Doyle's sleuth, not only in looks, but also in his cold but breathless way to handle the role.

9 years later, Cushing would star in another version of the story (click here to read review), as part of the 1960's  BBC-tv-series Sherlock Holmes.
