Notes

RIP, Roy Ward Baker

Director and Hammer horror icon Roy Ward Baker has died at the age of 93. Baker directed Quatermass and the PitThe Vampire Lovers, which updated Sheridan LeFanu’s Carmilla for a more psychedelic and softcore age, and co-directed Legend of the Seven Golden Vampires with Shaw Bros. Chang Cheh. He also worked on tv series such as The Avengers and The Saint. Hammer has a tribute online.
