An Unsung Master

I am about to settle in to a night with Sherlock Holmes, 'The Hound of the Baskervilles', with Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee. One of my all time favourites! 

So, with the time of year that's in it, I thought I would pay tribute to the director, one of the unsung masters of the horror genre, Terence Fisher

He may never be remembered in the same way Romero, Craven, Carpenter or Cronenberg (and others) will, but his contribution to british cinema and horror is outstanding.
