| The eerie setting, the mysterious atmosphere n the fog-shrouded moorland, they all r characters themselves.
I first saw this in the mid 90s. Revisited it recently. I loved this movie then n i still love it.

The film moves at a nice pace n has good suspense n lovely detective work. The acting is top notch. The seance scene was unnecessarily added.

Holmes and Watson investigate the legend of a supernatural hound, responsible for the deaths of the heirs of the Baskerville family. Holmes is approached n hired by Dr. Mortimer, a friend of the Baskerville family. Mortimer is anxious when the last n the youngest heir of the Baskerville family, Sir Henry returns from abroad n moves to the ancestral property on the desolated moors of Devonshire.
