THE HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES / Hammer Film Productions - 1959
It's Hound From Hell Monday with Tabonga, here at The Dungeon!.. This is a great little Hammer film that was one of the first horror movies Eegah!! and I saw together at the movies after we became pals in 6th grade. If there's one thing Hammer delivers, it's definitely thrills!..
Eegah!! sent over a soundclip from this fun flick for our listening enjoyment, sooooo, you can push the big red 'GO' button there next to the boiler room door, NOW, Ralphie The Tarantula! Here's our audio offering for... THE HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES!
Seriously, this fucker here's the despicible, sadistic Sir Hugo Baskerville, he's the one who brings the Curse of the Baskervilles to his family (as heard in the soundclip)! In the little time he's on the screen, he shows just what too much money and power can do to a little bitch! He has just murdered a girl for making him look like a fool in front of his jerk friends, then, he screams like a little girl when the Hound from Hell gets him!
Here's Peter Cushing as Sherlock Holmes, Francis De Wolff as Dr. Mortimer, André Morell as Dr. Watson and Chris Lee as Sir Henry Baskerville, what a bunch of acting talent in one spot!
This may be the textbook example of ~ Bonnie Lass!
Dr. Watson gets off the beaten path and into some quicksand while exploring the scruffy countryside.
Holmes had been pretending to be away, tending to other matters but was actually hiding in the moors, observing things from there. He's smarter the the average bear!
Classic portrait of Peter...
Holmes has a flair for the dramatic!
In a thrilling moment, Holmes is nearly run over by an ore cart that then causes the mine to collapse on him! After trying to rescue Holmes, the others find him waiting for them in the carriage, and, he got hurt pretty bad.
Sir Henry finally realizes that he has been played the fool by his lover, Cecile, and, he's on the devil dog's menu!
It was all a hoax kept alive by Sir Henry's neighbors, for revenge concerning land rights. The dog wore a mask to make it appear like a monster mutt!
And, Cecile meets her demise in one of the quicksand pools! The dog had just killed her father before it was shot by Holmes.
