The Hound of the Baskervilles

Arthur Conan Doyle

Book (fiction)|1902

The strange death of Sir Charles Baskerville, the owner of a large fortune, scares his neighbors and friends, because everyone knows that according to family legend, his family is haunted by a terrible curse: a demon appears from the depths of the swamps in the form of a terrible dog to avenge the Baskervilles for the ancient crime of a dissolute ancestor. Inhuman footprints were found near his body. Had the curse found another victim?

The famous detective Sherlock Holmes and his constant companion Dr. Watson must answer this question. That's just whether they are able to cope with supernatural forces, or under their mask hides an evil and merciless human will?

In the story, the muzzle of a dog with a body structure resembling an Irish wolfhound was smeared with phosphorus, which is actually poisonous and can cause blindness, loss of smell and even death of the animal. In the filming of the film, a Great Dane from Leningrad, Cyclone, was used, to whose muzzle, instead of a phosphorus mixture, a mask cut out of a reflective tape (light tape) used in the production of road signs was attached.

The plot of the story is based on the investigation of the death of Sir Charles Baskerville, who died under mysterious circumstances. In the Baskervilles family, a family legend about a devilish dog of supernatural origin, which pursues all representatives of the Baskervilles family, is passed down from generation to generation. Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson take up the investigation of this case.

The film tells the legend of a huge demonic dog chasing representatives of the Baskervilles. The plot of the legend does not differ from the one given in the original work.

Above Hugo's torn body stood a vile monster – a huge black beast, similar in appearance to a dog. The monster turned its bloody mouth towards them and flashed its burning eyes.

A contemporary of Sherlock Holmes, Sir Henry Baskerville, is attacked by a large glowing dog, which turns out to be an ordinary evil dog painted with phosphor paint.
