DigiGods Episode 144: 2018 Holiday Special and Gift Guide
Enjoy 5 spine-tingling classics from Castle!
Iconic horror director William Castle created a simple, but winning formula for his films: a little comedy, a lot of scares, a preposterous gimmick, and a clear sense that fright films should be fun. This even meant Castle would, like Alfred Hitchcock, appear in his trailers and even the movies themselves.
Though his career spanned 35 years and included everything from westerns to crime thrillers, he'll always be remembered for his horror films from the late 50s to the mid-60s. Enjoy 5 of his spine-tingling classics!
