Sad news to kick off your Sunday as it’s being reported by multiple sources that Hammer Films veteran John Carson has passed away at the age of 89 in Cape Town, South Africa.
The hawk-eyed actor starred in films such as Captain Kronos: Vampire Hunter, City of Blood, The Plague of Zombies, and Taste the Blood of Dracula. On top of being in several horror films, he often played villainous roles on TV and in adventure movies. One of his final appearances was in Neil Marshall’s Doomsday.
We send our condolences to his friends and family and thank him for all the terror he brought to the screen.
