Description - Terence Fisher by Peter Hutchings

Terence Fisher is best known as the director who made most of the classic Hammer horrors - including "The Curse of Frankenstein", "Dracula" and "The Devil Rides Out". But there is more to Terence Fisher than Hammer horror. In a 25 year career, he directed 50 films, not just horrors but also thrillers, comedies, melodramas, and science-fiction. This book offers an appreciation of all of Fisher's films and also gives a sense of his place in British film history. Fisher was a low-budget film-maker, largely unnoticed by critics and having little control over the projects he was assigned. That he managed to fashion something distinctive from such limited resources is a testament to his ablities, something that proved invaluable in the development of Hammer horror in the late 1950s.
