Hammer Horror Director Don Sharp Passes at 89

Director Don Sharp, who helped revive Hammer Horror in the 1960’s., passed away on December 18th at age 89. Sharp directed “Kiss of The Vampire,” as well as Christopher Lee in six movies, including “Rasputin the Mad Monk.” A tribute on the Hammer site by Marcus Hearn reads: “Don Sharp had never seen a horror film before producer Anthony Hinds screened a selection for him at Hammer House in 1962. Despite Sharp’s lack of experience in the genre, Hinds saw potential in the Australian director and his faith was rewarded in three Hammer productions over the next few years: The Kiss Of The Vampire, The Devil-Ship Pirates and Rasputin The Mad Monk.”
