Sadly, we have lost another icon whose contributions to the horror genre will always be revered. It’s with a heavy heart that we report classic Hammer Films staple Ingrid Pitt is no longer with us.
According to the UKPA the Polish-born star collapsed in London last week while on her way to an event hosted by members of her fan club. Her daughter, Steffanie Pitt, said she was “a fantastic woman”.
According to Steffanie Pitt, “She passed away this morning. It was heart trouble. She had a couple of bad years, health-wise, but she had fought through. Anyone who knew my mother would say she was incredibly feisty and determined to make a good fist of everything she wanted to do.”
Known for such classics as The Vampire Lovers, Countess Dracula and even a small role in The Wicker Man, Pitt will forever be remembered for her ability to terrorize and tantalize. She was 73.
We here at Dread Central would like to take this time to offer our deepest condolences to Ingrid’s friends, family, and constituents. Thanks for the memories. Godspeed.
