Ingrid Pitt, the enigmatic Queen of horror cinema has died, she was 73. A true icon, Ingrid starred in two of Hammer's most celebrated movies, Countess Dracula and The Vampire Lovers. She also appeared in the cult shocker The Wicker Man alongside Edward Woodward. Ingrid also had parts in Where Eagles Dare, The House That Dripped Blood and Who Dares Wins. More recently she appeared in Hammer's contemporary shocker, Beyond The Rave.
We interviewed Ingrid a few years back for this site and that piece will be reposted in tribute to her later in the week. Our thoughts go out to her family and friends.
