Hey guys,
  I'm not sure where this belongs but I thought Good Movies was appropriate for the guy who wrote The Curse of Frankenstein and The Horror of Dracula, among others.

I love the Cushing/Lee Hammer flicks.  They don't make 'em like that anymore.  RIP, Mr. Sangster.

RIP. I love his work on the earlier Frankenstein films. Turning the Doctor into the real monster and the creatures into his victims was a touch of genius.

Due to the horrifying nature of this film, no one will be admitted to the theatre.

He was a fantastic writer. Most of the films he worked on were terrific. R.I.P.  Bluesad

Sangster's scripts for the first two Frankenstein films were excellent, especially the amazing gut-punch he delivered to the audience at the end of Revenge of Frankenstein.

He should also be given much praise for his work on X: The Unknown.  Who the hell else ever thought of using radioactive mud as a monster?
