A stale spook concoction from the William Castle-Robb White production team.

Radio Times

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

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.

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

Combustible Celluloid

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

Film Threat

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

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.

Giddy and fun... and scary if you're in the right mood.

Movie Metropolis

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

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.

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.
