Pete Walker’s zodiac sign is Cancer. According to astrologers, the sign of Cancer belongs to the element of Water, just like Scorpio and Pisces. Guided by emotion and their heart, they could have a hard time blending into the world around them. Being ruled by the Moon, phases of the lunar cycle deepen their internal mysteries and create fleeting emotional patterns that are beyond their control. As children, they don't have enough coping and defensive mechanisms for the outer world, and have to be approached with care and understanding, for that is what they give in return.
Pete Walker was born in the Year of the Rabbit. Those born under the Chinese Zodiac sign of the Rabbit enjoy being surrounded by family and friends. They’re popular, compassionate, sincere, and they like to avoid conflict and are sometimes seen as pushovers. Rabbits enjoy home and entertaining at home. Compatible with Goat or Pig.
Writer, director, and producer Pete Walker was born on July 4, 1939 in Brighton, Sussex, England. The son of musical comedy performer Syd Walker, Pete began his show business career as a stand-up comic at a Soho strip club.
Walker went on to play bit roles in a few films prior to starting his own production company. Pete initially made 8mm glamour shorts before graduating to full-length soft-core features in the late 1960's.
However, it was in the 1970's that Walker made his strongest and most impressive mark with a series of gritty and hard-hitting horror movies that include the proto-slasher The Flesh and Blood Show (1972), the startling House of Whipcord (1974), the equally shocking Frightmare (1974), and the edgy The Confessional (1976).
His horror films frequently centered on the abuse of authority and the ever broadening gap between the young generation and the previous older one who are attempting to maintain order in an increasingly permissive society.
After directing the enjoyable all-star horror mystery thriller House of the Long Shadows (1983), Pete retired from filmmaking altogether and decided to pursue a career in property development instead.
