In this quintessential William Castle film, millionaire Vincent Price throws a haunted house party inviting a handful of “strangers” to overnight in a rented house with him and his lovely wife. For money. Touted to be filmed in EMERGO, the press on this film boasted that it had the “13 GREATEST  SHOCKS EVER SEEN.” Indeed, if you have seen it, you will remember some of the imagery and surprises. It is one of the best of the genre in atmosphere and of course, for Price’s performance.
