Thankfully had subtitles
2 June 2020 | by Stevieboy666See all my reviews

There must be so many different versions of this classic tale, just discovered this one, Der Hund Von Baskerville online and it was fairly enjoyable. It did seem a little strange seeing it in German but thankfully it came with English subtitles. Nicely shot, acting seemed ok and some atmosphere. The musical composition Night on Bald Mountain is used effectively several times. Nowhere near as good as either the Basil Rathbone or Hammer versions though.
