Spine-Tingler! The William Castle Story + Christian Divine's Monster Kids +

SEE EVENT DETAILS
On Saturday, October 26, on the eve of the spookiest night of the year, sometimes celebrated as Samhain, ATA Gallery's OTHER CINEMA presents the NorCal PREMIERE of Spine-Tingler! The William Castle Story, preceded by Christian Divine's mad-genius survey of Pop-Monster youth culture in mid-century America.

Through the '50s and '60s, master showman William Castle directed a series of horror films with outrageous audience-participation gimmicks, treating viewers to buzzing seats, flying skeletons, and luminescent ghosts. Jeffrey Schwarz' clip-packed doc is a riveting rags-to-riches tale of this exploitation legend.

ALSO, AND IN PERSON: Our favorite cult-film-monger Christian Divine sets the historical context with his 40-min. show-and-tell "Monster Kids: Pop-Horror Kulture of the 1960s." Famous Monsters of Filmland magazine, Universal Studios genre revivals, Aurora model kits, and TV-horror hosts are among the Cult Studies requirements covered in his energized and insightful overview of this crazy fandom.

Come early—and in costume!—for rare horror bits, free Trick-or-Treats, gothic drink specials, and stone-cold CHEAP DVD sales offer: 2 OCD Experiments in Terror discs for only $9.99!!
