Terence Roland "Terry" Fisher
Birth: Feb. 23, 1904
Maida Vale
Greater London, England
Death: Jun. 18, 1980
Greater London, England

Director. Best known for his association with Hammer Films and well respected throughout England and the United States. He was the first to bring gothic horror alive in full color which were very successful in the movie theaters. His credits include: "The Curse of Frankenstein" (1957), "The Horror of Dracula" (1958), "The Revenge of Frankenstein" (1958), "The Mummy" (1959), "The Hound of the Baskervilles" (1959), "The Brides of Dracula" (1960), "The Two Faces of Dr. Jekyll" (1960), "The Curse of the Werewolf" (1961), "The Gorgon" (1964), "Dracula, Prince of Darkness" (1966), "Rasputin, the Mad Monk" (1966), "Frankenstein Created Woman" (1967), "Island of the Burning Doomed" (1967), "Frankenstein and the Monster From Hell" (1974) and many more. He was supposed to be the director for "Dracula Has Risen From the Grave" (1968) but suffered a serious automobile accident and had to be replaced by Freddie Francis. His films were considered very graphic for their time and often criticized for using excessive gore. However, they are considered classics today. Directed Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee many times. Sadly, he was a heavy smoker and suffered from alcoholism, which made it difficult to find work late in his career. He had plans of making another Dracula film but was eventually dropped due to his death of a heart attack.  (bio by: Michael P. Sizemore)
