Episode Notes

It was a dark and stormy night! Another rainy day double feature. Public domain and excellent introductory black and white films. Vincent Price is the man you came to see. The Tingler is the tiny rubber monster that lives inside all of us. Is William Castle responsible for found footage and the alternate reality game? The many gimmicks of The Tingler. Black and white and red. Scream, scream for your lives! Percepto. Experiencing William Castle gimmicks today. The fright certificate and the coward’s corner. Roger Corman (without Vincent Price!) in A Bucket of Blood. William Castle inspires someone already. The Little Shop of Horrors after A Bucket of Blood. Walter Paisley and Dick Miller the leading man. Beatnicks still exist, and they’re at Whole Foods. A world where no one plays it straight. The accidental artist. Self esteem and the fear of inadequacy artists face. Murder, murder!
