It’s a sad day indeed as we are truly sorry to have to report that the great British director Ken Russell is no longer with us. Read on for all the details about the man’s legacy, life, and death.
Russell died in a hospital on Sunday, November 27, following a series of strokes. He was 84.
Ken touched our genre several times throughout his illustrious career including such memorable classics as 1971’s The Devils, Altered States, Gothic, Lair of the White Worm, and finally an entry in 2006’s anthology film Trapped Ashes. Along with those classics, he’s best known for adapting The Who’s rock opera Tommy along with a myriad of other films.
We here at Dread Central would like to take this time to offer our sincerest of condolences to Ken’s friends, family, and constituents. Rest easy, good sir. Your legacy will live on fruitfully!
