PG-13 | | Adventure, Fantasy, Mystery
When assorted people start having inexplicable delusions that lead to their deaths, a teenage Sherlock Holmes decides to investigate.
This film, Gremlins (1984) and the Back to the Future trilogy were all produced by Steven Spielberg and all have eccentric inventors and madcap inventions with pet dogs, Einstein, Barney and Uncas, named after a famous leader of an Indian tribe, which was dramatized in The Last of the Mohicans (1992).
Holmes, wait. What if the murderer is inside?
Sherlock Holmes: Then I shall introduce myself to him.
Considering how cold it would need to be to freeze the water or the river/lake so thick, no one's breath is visible while they are outside. Especially so during the climactic fight at the end where the body temperatures would have risen.
Throughout the end credits, the action follows a horsedrawn sleigh en route to an unknown destination. In last shot, the audience becomes privy to the surprise identity of the passenger, a key figure in Sherlockiana.
