Spine Tingler: The William Castle Story

In the 1950’s William Castle augmented his B Movies with wacky gimmicks, like shocking his audience with gizmos attatched to theater seats, and having nursed pass out life insurance policies covering “death by fear”. If that sounds fun to you (and I feel bad for people who it doesn’t) you’ll get a kick out of Spine Tingler. The doc itself doesn’t go above or beyond the call of duty, but it’sw subject matter is fun enough to hold your interest. John Waters is, as always, a great interview subject. 3/5
