HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL: A William Castle Annotated Screamplay by William Castle

"House on Haunted: A William Castle Annotated Screamplay" is the never-before-seen working script from William Castle's archives and is a Living Screenplay(TM).

"House on Haunted Hill" (written by Robb White) is a renowned work of producer and director William Castle, beloved for his signature-style fright-filled films and delivering "the gimmick" to the horror genre. "House on Haunted Hill" stars the inimitable Vincent Price and Emergo the skeleton who famously flew through theaters and taunted live audiences.

"House on Haunted Hill: A William Castle Annotated Screamplay" features original script formatting, maintaining the integrity of the authentic screenplay replete with Castle's hand-written notes and actual leather-bound style of design that he used for every movie he made. William Castle Productions is offering this book complete with Emergo, simply sift through the pages back to front and scare yourself silly.

The William Castle Annotated Screamplay for House on Haunted Hill includes a foreword by prolific director Joe Dante (Gremlins, The Howling). Dante calls House on Haunted Hill "an artifact worth having" and a "seminal 1950s picture". It also includes an introduction by William Castle's daughter, Terry Castle, who shares a personal perspective on this seminal piece of film history. And a historical perspective of the film by writer and illustrator Charlie Largent.

About the Author

America's "Master of the Macabre" is at it again. Remember the Lloyds of London life insurance policy that protected moviegoers if they were frightened to death by "Macabre"? Or the theatre seats that buzzed when "The Tingler" came on screen...and the refund for cowards who could not face the last terrifying minutes of "Homicidal"? Bill Castle loved scaring the pants off America...especially with his most famous hit, "Rosemary's Baby." Castle has always sought and found the thrill of thrilling--a mark of successful showmanship. And he's at it again, with his greatest gimmick of all time....he's back "from the grave." You can read all about it in his new novel "FROM THE GRAVE: The Prayer". No William Castle collection would be complete without a copy of William Castle's Living Screenplay (TM) from "House on Haunted Hill." Follow him daily at www.williamcastle.com.
