32 Days of Halloween VII, Day 13: The Hound of the Baskervilles (1939)

Le Chien des Baskerville

Well, today’s been a fairly crap day. We had to say goodbye to our very own Hellpuppy Kora, after an extended battle with cancer. In her honor and memory, we present an array of hound-related media for your enjoyment.

We begin with a cheese-ridden favorite: Zoltan: Hound of Dracula, in which man’s best friend becomes man’s best fiend. It’s sort of like Benji but with more vampires. After that trailer, we switch over to a given: the Twilight Zone most appreciated by animal lovers everywhere–“The Hunt.”


And lastly, for our feature film: what else? Yes, there have been multiple, multiple interpretations of Sherlock Holmes‘ adventure, The Hound of the Baskervilles. The most recent being the BBC/Cumberbatch version. There’s also the one with Peter Cushing (from 1959–the first Holmes in color, apparently). But when you have the Basil Rathbone version from 1939 available, how can you go wrong? Plus, Doc and Cosette both would pummel me to death with Nerf bats if I chose any other version. Enjoy.

Anything you love, do yourself a favor: hug it. Often.
