Ratings & Reviews

  1. Dan Kenneth Gigernes's rating of the film The Scarlet Claw

    Classic Sherlock Holmes movie that is back on track with an intriguing mystery about a "glowing killer" and some good disguises for our master sleuth. Dr. Watson falling down a stair and a ditch plus another patriotic speech where Holmes recites Winston Churchill ruin some of the movie.

  2. Hugo Poderoso's rating of the film The Scarlet Claw

    What I'll probably remember from this one: the strange and surreal look of the phosphorescence effect, the atmosphere, and Basil Rathbone.

  3. chanandre's rating of the film The Scarlet Claw

    "Thanks" for the spoiler Víctor Erice! :o (Awesome opening sequence tho)

  4. Ingrid Bergman's rating of the film The Scarlet Claw

    Arguably the best of the Sherlock Holmes films featuring Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce. The Scarlet Claw has an interesting storyline and terrific atmosphere.

  5. Log Lady's rating of the film The Scarlet Claw

    No matter how lacking these films themselves are, Rathbone is always a pleasure. The more I see him, the more convinced I am that he's the epitome of Sherlock. Rathbone is everything that I imagined Holmes to be from the way he speaks to the way he acts. The Scarlet Claw, however, doesn't get bogged down by Rathbone's portrayal. It's atmospheric and surpisingly charming in parts (Watson is funnier when he's drunk).
