RATE AND COMMENT

BIOGRAPHY

Leading British horror director of the 1950s and 60s who began his career as an editor and a director of romantic melodramas. Fisher joined Hammer Studios in 1952 and first hit his stride in 1957 with "Curse of Frankenstein". His subsequent output of low-budget B remakes of Univeral horror classics for Hammer including proficient chillers such as "Horror of Dracula" (1958) and "The Devil Rides Out" (1968) (alongside best-forgotten mishaps such as "Frankenstein Created Woman" 1967), is noted for its brash colors, liberal use of blood, and casting of has-been American former stars.
