Hammer horror show for Lee

SIR Christopher Lee has now endured a torrid horror of his own.

He was ordered by a court in Burgos to pay out 710,000 euros to Spanish illustrator Gerardo Moreno.

Famed for his role as Count Dracula, the Hammer Horror star’s assets were frozen until compensation was received.

Gerardo Moreno sued the 87-year-old claiming he was not properly paid for the DVD artwork on 1998 film Jinnah.

He argued that he did not receive any payments for the designs, which were used for the second edition of the DVD.

Lee has performed in 266 films since 1948, but Jinnah may now want to be one he wants to forget.
