Antagony & Ecstasy

Dumb and corny and reliant to a ludicrous degree on Price's withering sarcasm, but it not only knows what it is, it loves being what it is.

There's no denying that Castle's directorial crassness does actually supply some genuinely frightening moments.

There is some good humor in the dialog which not only pays off well against the ghostly elements, but provides a release for laughter so it does not explode in the suspense sequences.

William Castle was better known for his gimmicks than for his films, but this haunted house chiller is actually very good.

The film has a genuinely creepy atmosphere and boasts at least one leap-outa-your-seat shock moment.

If one had to pick the best of the campy horror films that made [Castle's] reputation, this 1958 feature would probably be it.

Still a classic after the wretched remake, Price's horror film is still fun, even during the cheesy climax.

As campy fun, this one is timeless, expertly executed and still delivers its fey thrills and worldly laughs.

One of Castle's more atmospheric and modestly entertaining schlock-o-ramas.

...a minor cult classic in the haunted-house genre, and while it may not be very scary, it sure is entertaining.

Anyone for goose pimples? If so, there is a plethora of such epidermal elevations in this entry in to the apparently endless cycle of horror plays with which the world's screens are currently being flooded.
