Why I love Peter Cushing

Marcus Brooks with Peter Cushing


The Peter Cushing Appreciation Society UK has been running under various names and forms since the 1950s. Super fan Marcus Brooks tells The Spooky Isles how  the Hammer star’s fan club has embraced the internet age.


MOST people reading The Spooky Isles probably consider themselves horror film fans – including those writing it. But there would be very few of us who can honestly say we have spent as much time devoted to the genre as “super fan” Marcus Brooks – the organiser of the Peter Cushing Appreciation Society.

  1. I am also a Peter Cushing fan, i think with Sir Christopher Lee they make excellent horror movies, i love them all, i cried bitterly all day when i heard Pter died, there will never be a great pair as these 2 fine actors, i find todays so called horror is boring and to gory and sometimes far to much sex. I went to Transylvania in Christopher’s documentry film In Search of Dracula and Dracula’s castle was hug much larger than Windsor Castle and the grounds was huge and vast and put on top of the evergreen hills, we went in the summer of 1974, when it became nightfall my parents and my younger brother heard howlings we asked the tour guide and she told us there are wolves up here but they will not come here near us, they are afraid of humans, so i played a prank on my brother i made a howling noise in his ear he jumped and it scared him, i laughed and told him they are my children of the night. he soon calmed down and started laughing and said who do you think you are Bela Lugosi’s sister. My parents didn’t know what my brother and i was up too they were more interested to enter the castle so we did so much stuff like swords on the wall, portrait paintings of how he looked liked him, etc etc it was really interesting, it was a pity we were not allowed to take and photos or filming.I recommend anyone to go to Romania for a holiday and go on this trip it is worth the money.
