13 Sleeps Until the William Castle Blogathon
I have been counting down the number of sleeps to an event I am excited about since I was a kid. This evening marks 13 sleeps until day one of The William Castle Blogathon (hosted by Jo over at The last Drive In & me)! When I think 13 I think William Castle! Mr. Castle was so fond of the number 13 he included it in the title of two of his films; 13 Ghosts and 13 Frightened Girls! One of my contributions to the event is a post I am calling Fun with GIFs: The William Castle Edition. So to celebrate 13 sleeps until The William Castle Blogathon here are two early GIFs for Mr. Castle’s 13 Ghosts.
Barry at Cinematic Catharsis will be reviewing 13 Ghosts (1960) and Heather Drain at Mondo Heather will be reviewing 13 Frightened Girls! (1963) to see a list of all the contributors click here. I will have one more update post before the blogathon begins with a schedule of each day’s events.
Step right up! I’d like to bring your attention to the newest side banner created by David at My Kind of Story.
