JIMMY SANGSTER, HAMMER SCRIBE EXPIRES
Hammer Films veteran producer, director and screenwriter Jimmy Sangster passed away on Friday. His economical, revisionist scripts helped herald a new wave of blood-splashed gothic horror that included CURSE OF FRANKENSTEIN (1957), HORROR OF DRACULA (1958) and many others including some PSYCHO-inspired thrillers. Sangster's work has stood the test of time and will continue to entertain and inspire.
