SCREAM FOR YOUR LIFE AND WIN AT FANGORIA

SCREAM FOR YOUR LIFE AND WIN AT FANGORIA

New promotion posted today at Fangoria.com:

“On October 2, 2011, the world will once more feel the clammy, carnival grip of William Castle’s work when “he” releases his first book, FROM THE GRAVE: THE PRAYER, a terrifying tale geared—as were the original Castle horror films—to young adults looking for bone-chilling, yet campy, shocks. FANGORIA is teaming up with Castle and giving our readers the chance to take a page out of THE TINGLER’s wild ad campaign and “Scream for Your Life!” And three lucky winners will receive a signed copy of the book plus…a classic piece of vintage memorabilia from the Castle vaults!

In the history of horror cinema, one name stands alone. A kind of P.T. Barnum of vintage big-screen shock, producer/writer/director and weird movie visionary William Castle stumbled upon a winning formula when, with his 1958 chiller MACABRE, he arranged for theater owners to offer more lily-livered pundits a life insurance policy insuring moviegoers against death during the running time, authentically certified by Lloyd’s of London. The marketing gimmick took off, and more stunts followed in such Castle films as THE HOUSE ON HAUNTED HILL, HOMICIDAL, THE TINGLER (check out Castle’s introduction to that film below) and many more. Castle passed away in 1977 at the age of 63, but, as all Fangorians know, true masters of horror never die. They always come back…

Simply pick up your iPhones, webcams or any other video recording device and film yourself doing your best Hollywood horror-style scream—the louder and more dramatic the better—and send an MPEG to chris@fangoria.com . We’ll send the video straight to the gloriously undead William Castle and his charming (although still rather bloodthirsty) daughter, Terry Castle, who will watch ’em and judge ’em. We’ll then start posting the best of them online at Fangoria.com.

Closer to the release of THE PRAYER, the Castles will pick their three favorite screams and the winners will receive a signed copy of the book plus…a classic piece of vintage memorabilia from the Castle vaults! So polish your pipes, stick your mug in front of some sort of lens and give William Castle your best full-throttle scream! And remember: “A scream at the right time might save your life!”

And win you some cool junk!”

Happy screaming–

WC

    • William Castle says:

      You are such a loyal fan! I was delighted to see and hear your scream!

  2. I think may enter this! Thank you for the heads up! 🙂
