About The Hound of the Baskervilles

Hammer’s necessarily more horrific take on the oft-filmed Conan Doyle classic features Peter Cushing and Andre Morell as one of the best Holmes/Watson pairings, despite the fact that the story keeps Holmes offscreen for a large portion of the action. Christopher Lee gets to play opposite a tarantula.

About Mick Garris

Previously, Garris created the Masters of Horror hour-long cable series of fright films helmed by well-known genre directors, including himself.  Numerous screenplay assignments led to a career in directing, and he is perhaps best known for his long association with Stephen King, whose novels The Stand and The Shining have been translated by Garris into well-received mini-series.
