The William Castle Blogathon Update!
The William Castle Blogathon hosted by Jo over at The Last Drive In and yours truly is coming and we have a pile of updates for you. There are several new contributors and an impressive range of titles chosen. I really am psyched about the enthusiasm for Mr. Castle! Every last one of you are fecking awesome! I have included an updated list of participants below. What will your Castle-loving hosts be up to? Jo will be covering House on Haunted Hill (1959), Johnny Stool Pigeon (1949), and Back Story: What Ever Happened to William Castle’s Baby? (Rosemary’s Baby). I will be doing “The Women of Castle“, “The Music of Castle” and “Top Five Favourite Castle Films“.
David Arrate over at My Kind of Story created a new banner featuring It’s a Small World (1950) as well as a side banner featuring Shanks (1974). Feel free to use these if you want to help promote the blogathon. I highly recommend checking out David’s Shanks (1974) Tumblr post here!
