A dog with snake teeth
15 June 2007 | by unbrokenmetalSee all my reviews

The story of "Der Hund von Blackwood Castle" revolves around this castle whose owner has just died. His daughter is asked to sell the castle, but she suspects too many men want to buy it for dubious reasons and refuses to sell it. Of course she gets into trouble, and soon the first body is found. A black dog with snake teeth bites to kill! "Der Hund von Blackwood Castle" is one of the better movies among the colored ones of the Edgar Wallace series. Karin Baal plays the heiress, Heinz Drache as Connery (!) and Horst Tappert as Douglas Fairbanks (!!) belong to the cast as well as two experienced veterans: Siegfried Schürenberg ("A dog was bitten by a man - or the other way around") and Agnes Windeck („People in this inn always die before they pay their bills“).
