Forrest J. Ackerman in Spine Tingler! The William Castle Story

Spine Tingler! The William Castle Story

2007 NR

This documentary celebrates the work of independent horror movie producer William Castle, who marketed his 1950s-era films with gimmicks such as giving audience members life insurance vouchers in case the movie frightened them to death. Featuring interviews with director Roger Corman and other colleagues of the gleefully shameless promoter, this tribute from filmmaker Jeffrey Schwarz also examines Castle's later mainstream career.
