“The Hound From Hell!”

published 23/08/2015

ProGreat cast, atmospheric

ConsNot sticking to the original story enough

ConsA rather docile and unconvincing hound

On proposing this film, I was deliberately vague with the description, as I am sure everyone will have their own favourite version of this oft filmed Sherlock Holmes outing. Other than Dracula, Sherlock Holmes is the most depicted fictional character in screen history, with 'Hound of the...
