THE HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES

For generations the Baskerville family is believed to have been cursed by a diabolical killer hound that prowls the fog-shrouded moors of their
estate.

When Sir Henry Baskerville is found dead, the great detective Sherlock Holmes embarks on his most famous case in The Hound of the Baskervilles (1983) with the loyal Dr. Watson (Donald Churchill – Zepplin) by his side.

In this classic tale of murder and deception in the eerie English countryside, Sherlock will need all his skills of deduction to unravel this haunting mystery and the legend of the hound.

Bat

BatI love prosthetic effects, stop-motion animation and gore, but most of all I love a good story! I adore B-movies and exploitation films in many of their guises and also have a soft spot for creature features. I review a wide range of media including movies, TV series, books and videogames. I'm a massive fan of author Hunter S. Thompson and I enjoy various genre of videogames with Kingdom Hearts and Harvest Moon two of my all time favs. Currently playing: Silent Hill
