Riassunto: Terence Fisher was the director who brought the modern Gothic horror film to life in the second half of the twentieth century. As director John Carpenter ( Halloween) notes in his introduction to the volume, "to see [Fisher's] films now...is to witness a focused and coherent world-view emerging from the Gothic horror formula...Terence Fisher and The Curse of Frankenstein was the beginning of it all for the modern horror film..." But Fisher's career is much more than the Hammer horror films. He worked in every conceivable genre and left his stamp on every aspect of the medium. In this book, the first full-length study of Fisher in English, Wheeler Dixon discusses in detail Fisher's entire work as a director.
