Kat and Samm are back at long last to discuss the final films of beloved producer and director William Castle. Though he’s generally celebrated for gimmicky horror classics like The Tingler (1959) and House on Haunted Hill (1959), in this episode, they’re going to explore some of his underrated later titles and recurring themes. This includes films like The Night Walker (1964), a surreal affair starring screen legend Barbara Stanwyck, and the subject of Castle’s collaborations with renowned actresses like Stanwyck and Joan Crawford. Other topics include his children’s thrillers like I Saw What You Did (1965), and Castle’s sensitive use of teenage girl protagonists, and the brilliant and sadly neglected Shanks (1974). This beautiful, thoroughly creepy film was Castle’s final directorial effort and is a rare collaboration with the great Marcel Marceau, so it gets some long overdue love in this episode.
