The Hound of the Baskervilles Movie Reviews

Probably the worst filmed version of the book

THE HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES is another of the dumb Canadian Holmes films starring Matt Frewer. To describe his portrayal of Sherlock Holmes as the worst ever would be a fair statement, I think. He’s a gurning buffoon with a laughably dire accent and a kind of fey, foppish personality totally at odds with the calculating character of the Conan Doyle stories. A real dud, in other words.

The only decent performance in this production comes from Kenneth Welsh doing a passable impersonation of Dr Watson. The famous Gothic masterpiece is brought to life in an entirely unconvincing way here, in fact I think this is probably the least realistic of all the filmed versions of the story. The hound itself looks like something out of a cheap B-movie horror flick and the supporting cast give singularly unbelievable performances. What happened to the wonderfully spooky atmosphere of the novel, all of the creepy moments? THE HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES is Holmes-by-numbers, nothing more.

They Were the Footprints of a DOG!

Not a travesty, this version of Conan-Doyle’s most famous and most filmed novella opens in accordance with the printed version, with Matt Frewer as the world’s first and only consulting detective, pacing around the room and dramatically throwing off hypotheses about the nature of the recent visitor who has left his walking stick behind. At that, the film limits the number of conclusions drawn by Holmes. (Eg., the breed of DOG that carried the walking stick for its master.)

All of this is attended by Kenneth Welsh as the skeptical Dr. Watson. I hate saying this because I wish all filmic preparations of the canon well. But if there is something tic-y and overripe about Frewer’s portrayal of Holmes, there is something impassive and vacant about Welsh’s Dr. Watson. He’s barely there. Ever.

The movie follows the narrative fairly closely at first, even introducing us to Miss Laura Lyons, typist, whose role is given some importance. She’s almost always deleted. The story leaves Conan-Doyle behind at the climax. He may still be struggling in one of those bottomless bogs in the Great Grimpin Mire for all we know. I won’t describe it except to say that the hound isn’t too terrifying.

The departures from the original narrative do some damage to the film as a whole. Too bad. Grenada TV’s version, from the series with Jeremy Britt, is frankly better.

Unbearable Arrogance

In London, Sherlock Holmes (Matt Frewer) and Dr. Watson (Kenneth Welsh) are visited by the countryside Dr. Mortimer (Gordon Masten). He tells that Sir Baskerville has officially died of heart attack; however there are rumors and he believes that he was murdered by the notorious devil hound. Dr. Mortimer asks whether Sherlock Holmes would accept to investigate the case and also provide protection against the curse to the heir Sir Henry Baskerville (Jason London). Dr. Watson travels with Dr. Mortimer to meet Sir Henry and protect him while Holmes stays in London. Will they resolve the case?

“The Hound of the Baskervilles” is a Canadian version of the famous novel of the same title made for television. The high quality cinematography and the good screenplay are partially wasted with the unbearable arrogance of Sherlock Holmes performed by Matt Frewer, the worst Sherlock Holmes ever. Jason London is also miscast but his performance is satisfactory. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): “Demônio do Pântano” (“Demon of the Swamp”)
