Is it true that a hellish hound is haunting the lonely moors, hunting down the hapless Baskervilles through the generations? If anyone can put this chilling legend to rest, it's Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson. It seems the body of the latest owner of the Baskerville estate has just been discovered in a ghastly condition, and Holmes has been called in on the case none too soon. The howls and moans that punctuate the elaborate twists of this Gothic tale will raise the hair on readers' necks and make converts of any who are not already fans of the famed detective.
Over 20 film and television versions of The Hound of the Baskervilles have been made. The first, is a 1914 German film, Der Hund von Baskerville, and the last, being CBS' crime drama Elementary in 2016 with the episode "Hounded".
