Subotsky served in the Signal Corps during WWII, returning to begin his career as a writer/producer during the "Golden Age" of live TV. He graduated to feature films with "Rock, Rock, Rock" (1956), for which he composed nine songs as well as serving as producer along with his partner, Max J. Rosenberg. They followed up with another rock quickie, "Jamboree" (1957), and "The Last Mile" (1959), a prison movie starring Mickey Rooney.

In 1960 Subotsky moved to England, where he produced his first horror film, "Horror Hotel" (1960; a.k.a. "City of the Dead"), and Richard Lester's debut feature, "It's Trad, Dad" (1962). In 1964 Subotsky and Rosenberg started Amicus Productions and made "Dr. Terror's House of Horrors" (1965), the first of many horror/fantasy/sci-fi outings, several of which would draw on the inimitable talents of Vincent Price, Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing.

After the breakup of Amicus in 1975, Subotsky announced and developed numerous fantasy features, many of which were never produced. He did co-produce the TV miniseries of Ray Bradbury's beloved book, "The Martian Chronicles"(1980), and also worked on several Stephen King film and TV projects.
