Audience Reviews for Sherlock Holmes in the House of Fear

Who better plays Sherlock Holmes the Basil Rathbone and say what you like but what better way to watch a Sherlock Holmes movie then in black and white on a windy stormy Saturday night. In this one a rich mans club with a membership of 7 are being murdered one by one, who is the killer and why are they being killed for the riches in their estates??? Only Sherlock can solve the crime. An excellent watch 4 stars
