Truthfully, Jeffrey Schwartz's biographical take on William Castle probably won't tell any hardcore fans anything they didn't already know. However, all that ghoulish info has been beautifully and lavishly packaged together with an eye-popping amount of publicity stills, background details and minutiae that makes this thing an absolute must see for any fans of Castle's gimmicks and bag of tricks.
