...doesn't sell out Holmes for cheap laughs or thrills...

'A Study in Terror' is worthy entertainment, much more interesting than Herman Cohen's previous productions. [Full Review in Spanish]

Add John Neville, a skillful English actor to the long list of performers who have played Sherlock Holmes, and place him high on the list.

April 4, 2019 | Full Review…

The horror/suspense tale looks good in Technicolor and art director Alex Vetchinsky creates an atmospheric smoky Whitechapel setting.
