The Seven-Per-Cent Solution

It's no mystery what makes this film great.


Comedy

If there's one thing I love more than a good Sherlock Holmes movie, it's a vintage Alan Arkin performance, and 1976's The Seven-Per-Cent Solution provides both. Widely acclaimed upon its release, the film has become somewhat forgotten — here's hoping Shout! Factory's Blu-ray/DVD combo release will help reverse that.

As the pic's mad scientist introduces him, “This one is harmless. He combs his hair continuously, like a vain adolescent.”

The Secret of Crickley Hall

Trick or treat? Totally a treat.


Television series

What is The Secret of Crickley Hall? Well, if I told you, it wouldn't be a secret. The less juvenile answer: It's a superb BBC limited series that'll plunk you in the proper Halloween spirit.
