Additional Information

Enjoy 5 spine-tingling classics from Castle!

Iconic horror director William Castle created a simple, but winning formula for his films: a little comedy, a lot of scares, a preposterous gimmick, and a clear sense that fright films should be fun. This even meant Castle would, like Alfred Hitchcock, appear in his trailers and even the movies themselves.



Though his career spanned 35 years and included everything from westerns to crime thrillers, he'll always be remembered for his horror films from the late 50s to the mid-60s. Enjoy 5 of his spine-tingling classics!

This 2-DVD set includes five movies directed and produced by William Castle. "13 Ghosts" (1960) stars the very likable Martin Milner, who uncharacteristically plays a villain. The gimmick for this movie was the claim that it was filmed in "Illusion-O," and a special viewer was needed to see the ghosts. You looked through the red filter to see the ghosts, or looked through the blue filter to block seeing the ghosts. This funny and frightening film easily rates five stars.

My least favorite film is "13 Frightened Girls!" (1963). It stars Kathy Dunn as Candace "Candy” Hull, a/k/a Kitten. She’s the teen-aged daughter of an American ambassador who uses her access to various embassies to engage in espionage. Her crush on the much older Wally Sanders, played by Murray Hamilton, is more creepy than romantic. As for Kathy Dunn, this was her only appearance in a theatrical, feature-length film. I'm being generous in giving this mediocre movie a... Read more
Great value on 5 William Castle films (originally available in the much more expensive and OOP William Castle Collection) Really nice quality for the price. You may want to make sure you have a set of red/blue 3D Glasses for 13 Ghosts, because it includes the Ghost Vision segments but will look pretty funky without the specs.
Great Collection. If you love William Castle films; this is great. The only negative is there are no special features on the discs just the films.
