Sherlock Holmes and the Case of the Red Claw

The confused milieu of the Universal Holmes series is a curiosity. This one is set in francophone Canada (no actual French is in evidence, natch) but it's some district in Quebec that can stand in for Transylvania, or Dartmoor for that matter. The body count is rather high and the murders are grisly for the genre. According to the commentary track, this production was escaping from its serial nature and edging into 'A' territory. Hmm.
