The Hound of the Baskervilles
Mystery, mayhem and madcap comedy ensue when Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson attempt to solve the ancient curse of the Baskervilles. After receiving a warning not to enter his newly inherited manor, Henry Baskerville enlists the help of the infamous duo, but this may be one mystery that is far from elementary. This slapstick comedy spoof of the most famous Sherlock Holmes case will have you in hysterics.
