Personal Quote:

You have to aim for a suspension of disbelief. Visually speaking, I think my films are good and believable, because I have a good visual sense within the frame. I hate what I call "tricky shooting" - which makes a film look like a long TV commercial. See more »

Trivia:

He directed the Hammer Films that were remakes of the Universal Monster movies, from Frankenstein to Dracula The Werewolf to The Phantom of the Opera, and thus they became almost equally as iconic as British movies. See more »
