Spine Tingler! The William Castle Story is coming to VOD Platforms, Tubi, Hoopla, Flix Fling, Plex and Amazon Prime on November 28th from Bayview Entertainment.
Throughout the 1950’s and 60’s, William Castle produced and directed a series of horror films marked by their outrageous audience participation gimmicks. Castle treated moviegoers to buzzing seats, flying skeletons, luminescent ghosts, and life insurance policies — and they loved every minute of it. Spine Tingler! The William Castle Story is a documentary about the last great American showman. It is a rags-to-riches tale of a legend of exploitation and master of self-promotion, yet a man privately plagued by a fear of failure and a desperate desire to be respected among his peers.
William Castle directed such films as The Tingler (1959), House on Haunted Hill (1959), Macabre (1958), 13 Ghosts (1960), The Old Dark House (1963), and Strait-Jacket (1964) among many others.
