May 31, 1977
On this day in Horror History, William Castle passed away. Perhaps leading one of the most eclectic and legendary careers in the Horror industry, Castle would get his start while working with Orson Welles in radio prior to his employment with both Columbia and Universal Pictures. Not for the faint of heart, the icon of the silver screen would give the world some of the most memorable and adored horror films of all time, including Macabre (1958), 13 Ghosts (1960), and Rosemary's Baby (1968). Forever an inspiration to the industry which he helped build, Castle's brilliance has stood the test of time to a new generation of horror fans.
“An expert is a man who tells you a simple thing in a confused way in such a fashion as to make you think the confusion is your own fault.” -William Castle
