Terror By Night (2004) Horror Movie Review
Horror movies Review
This Basil Rathbone-Sherlock Holmes adventure involves a bunch of suspects on a train, each looking guilty making the viewer undecided who really is the culprit who’s trying to steal a precious diamond, “The Star Of Rhodesia.”
With all the suspects (who are fun to watch), there are a number of twists every five minutes to keep us all guessing. There isn’t a lot of action, but just enough to keep things lively. Once again Nigel Bruce as “Dr. Watson,” provides the humor with his mumbling and bumbling aboard the train. It’s always fun to see the equally-bumbling Inspector Lestrade, (Dennis Hoey) too. The wrap-up at the end went a little quickly but overall I have no complaints about this Holmes entry. I would watch it multiple times and always enjoy it.
What I really appreciated was the fine transfer the UCLA 35mm “restored” process team did on this disc. It looks great.
