When I was approached by Goregirl over at Goregirl’s Dungeon about taking part in a William Castle Blog-a-Thon (co-hosted by The Last Drive-In), I couldn’t possibly say no. Castle, after all, is exactly the kind of filmmaker we should all admire. He had big ideas, and he used them to make movies infinitely more fun. I wasn’t exactly sure what to do, but I was pretty sure that whatever it was needed to focus on his gimmicks in some way. Enter the William Castle Gimmick infographic. Enjoy! And be sure to check out the other articles from the full list of participants to get a complete picture of William Castle’s greatness.
