Adapted to a modern setting that takes literature’s most spine-chilling mystery and turns it into a play of suspense, humor, and ultimate terror. Sir Henry has become heir to the vast Baskerville fortune a legacy that comes complete with a family curse—death at the fangs of a living horror prowling the English moor. Only Sherlock Holmes can stop the beast from striking again. Hound of the Baskervilles is a superb whodunit where everyone is a suspect and, it seems, has something to hide. Excellent character roles. A surprise twist at the end. Suitable for all ages.
