Vomit Bag with the Price of Admission? LOL


Recommended Posts

This was just another in a series of little movie companies who were what could be called: "William Castle Wanna Be's!" The big difference was that Bill Castle had something of a touch of class, even if he did try a little bit in exploiting what others had done. Everybody else who handled this sort of zany promotional atmosphere, never had the type of success Bill Castle had and he did bring lots of fans back into the movie theaters throughout the country. It was rather obvious that Bill tried at times to shadow the mighty Hitchcock, especially after the big box-office success of "Psycho" and Bill countered with "Homicidal" that very same year! The only thing that kept Bill's movies so interested with the fans were these various attention grabing gimmicks that were usually announced at the theaters and in television commericals. I do miss this type of "shock theater" or "movie trick devices" that gave audiences a little more excitement then staying at home glued to one's television set.
