The Hound of the Baskervilles
1959
Directed by Terence Fisher

Hammer Films!

I don’t really need to go into many details about the story of this. Everyone knowns the story. It’s one of Sherlock Holmes’s most famous cases. There have also been innumberable film adaptations. So what I want to talk about here is the things that make this adaptation unique.

In the end, those unique qualities boil down to two things: Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee. The great Hammer Horror acting team and real life best-friends are paired once again in this. There’s a particular magic that happens when these two get to make a movie together.

It just makes me wish Peter Cushing so much. Can you imagine if Cushing and Lee got a chance to make another film together?

I give it three spooky pumpkins out of five.

So what does “It just makes me wish Peter Cushing so much”

You wish he was a pizza?

You wish he was in bed next to you?
