William Castle on Halloween

Tomorrow being Halloween, TCM is spending the entire day, or at least their programming day that goes from 6:00 AM one day to 6:00 AM the next, with horror movies. Those of you who are fans of the William Castle shtick are in luck, as he is well-represented.

First, at 1:45 PM, you can catch The Tingler, in which Vincent Price helps search for the "tingler" that everybody has inside them and which people keep from getting to dangerous by screaming.

That will be followed at 3:15 PM by Spine Tingler! The William Castle Story, which is a documentary about the movies and gimmicks of William Castle.

One movie that didn't really need a gimmick was Strait-Jacket, which comes on overnight, or early Saturday morning, at 3:30 AM.

Unsurprisingly, two of the blog posts I link to were done in October, while the third was after recording a mvoie in Octoer and watching it at the beginning of November.
