This film marks the return of director Terence Fisher
after an extended absence from Hammer productions, as his films were considered too slow and emotional by this point. Fisher has mentioned in multiple interviews (and by his daughter's admittance), that this film was his personal favourite to make, along with Horror of Dracula
(1958). After directing this film and The Devil Rides Out
(1968), Fisher would once again be out of the picture for a while due to several car accidents. His final Hammer film was Frankenstein and the Monster from Hell
(1974). See more
