Movie Info

Detective Sherlock Holmes (Basil Rathbone) and his trusty partner Dr. Watson (Nigel Bruce) travel to Quebec, Canada, where a small village has been terrorized by a series of grisly murders. Members of the Royal Canadian Occult Society, led by Lord William Penrose (Paul Cavanagh), believe that paranormal forces are to blame, but when Sherlock pinpoints the real culprit -- a vengeful actor -- he must track him down before he commits his next brutal act.

    Excellent Sherlock Holmes adventure. The mystery actually draws you in and has questions to be answered. Unlike most mysteries of today the film isn't desperate to surprise you with some ridiculous/confusing motive. It is possible to work out who did it, but that's part of the fun. Working it out with Holmes. The art direction is superb, creating gothic scenes on the streets and in the marshes. Rathbone and Bruce's chemistry also plays well, with Rathbone as a fairly pompous but also impressive Holmes and Bruce as sometimes comic but still useful Watson. It concentrates on the mystery and leaves characterisation well alone. Though at not much over an hour it's a fantastic "Who Done It?"

    Great atmosphere in one of the better Rathbone Sherlock Holmes films.
