A supernaturally-charged serial killer rises from his prison grave to seek out the sacrifice that eluded him in life in Hong Kong cinematographer-turned-director Derek Wan's exploitive mash-up of women's prison films and zombie gut-munchers. As a child, Solitare (Carla Greene) managed to escape being sacrificed to Satan by the fearsome maniac Shadow (Tony Todd), but as an adult she may not be so lucky. Incarcerated in the very same prison where the devil-worshipping killer met his ultimate fate years earlier, Solitare is forced to fight her way through the prison ranks and earn her top-dog status among the hardened female inmates. Defeating her human opponents will be nothing compared to the challenge Solitare faces when Shadow returns from the dead to stake his claim on the soul that he was denied in life, though, and as an undead army rises from the earth to assist Shadow in his evil bidding, Solitare will find that it takes more than muscle and fighting skills to defeat an opponent with the power of ultimate evil on his side. ~ Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide
Includes:The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes (1939) The Scarlet Claw (1944) The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce make their second screen appearances as Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson in The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes. Ostensibly based on the stage play by William Gillette, the film owes nothing to the play beyond the characters of Holmes, Watson, Billy the page boy and Professor Moriarty. Played with relish (and a bit of pickle) by George Zucco, Moriarty plots to steal the Crown Jewels, and also to confound Holmes by obliging the Great Detective to be in two places at once. Ida Lupino costars as an imperiled young woman who is seemingly plagued by an ancient family curse--a plot development that has been carefully stage-managed by the malevolent Moriarty. Basil Rathbone is excellent not only as Holmes but also in the guise of a cockney music-hall entertainer (if indeed that is Rathbone performing a buck-and-wing in longshot). The second of Twentieth Century-Fox's Holmes films (Hound of the Baskervilles was the first), The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes was the last in which Rathbone and Bruce were seen in a 19th century setting. In the subsquent Sherlock Holmes series at Universal, the exploits of Holmes and Watson were updated to the World War II years. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide The Scarlet Claw Though it is not based on any Conan Doyle story, The Scarlet Claw is regarded by Baker Street aficionados as the best of Universal's Sherlock Holmes series. Holmes (Basil Rathbone) and Watson (Nigel Bruce) journey to Canada to investigate a series of mysterious murders. All the victims have been found with their throats ripped out (yecch!). Halfway through the film, Holmes deduces that the culprit is a demented actor, wreaking vengeance on those who've wronged him in some way or other. The actor is a master of disguise, and could be anyone in the village -- from the constable to the postman to the reclusive, violence-prone innkeeper (Arthur Hohl). Alas, the publicity photos sent out with The Scarlet Claw gave away the identity of the killer -- something we have no intention of doing here. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide
