Description by OLDIES.com:

William Castle was cinema's Abominable Showman - the marketing genius who thought "outside the coffin" to dream up outrageous PR gimmicks like PERCEPTO! and EMERGO! He was also the talented director of 56 feature films, from the noir When Strangers Marry and the Whistler mysteries, to Westerns, swashbucklers and - his fearsome forte - celebrated shockers such as House on Haunted Hill, Strait-Jacket, Homicidal, The Tingler, and more! Author Joe Jordan provides exhaustive scholarly analysis of each of Castle's directorial efforts, as well as production background, little-known anecdotes, and succinct plot synopses.
