When the lord of Baskerville Hall, Sir Charles Baskerville is found mysteriously dead on the grounds, everyone thinks back to the ever-present legend of a monstrous creature that haunts the local area. The great detective Sherlock Holmes is insistent on there being a more rational explanation and goes to investigate. The difficulty will not just be in finding that explanation, but in finding it before the fiendish hellhound finds him.
