Here's something cool for today's post on The MonsterGrrls' 31 Days Of Halloween--The William Castle Film Collection is out on October 20th!
Castle, the director responsible for such classic horror films as The House On Haunted Hill (1959) and 13 Ghosts 1960), was famous for such theatrical gimmicks as "Emergo" and "Illusiono" but also made some fairly cool films regardless. This new DVD set contains such well-known films as The Tingler (1959), Mr. Sardonicus (1961), the aforementioned 13 Ghosts, and the classic The Old Dark House (1963), in addition to several features on all of the crazy gimmicks surrounding each of these and other films in the set, and two bonus episodes of the 1972 TV series Ghost Story, which Castle produced. So if you're looking for something totally goofy in addition to scary for Halloween, you might want to score yourself a copy of this collection.
See you tomorrow for more of The MonsterGrrls' 31 Days Of Halloween!
