  1. So great that you dedicated an episode for one of Mr. Castle's gems, Strait-Jacket is another fun movie that I've seen from him. I think I have to check out at least The Tingler and The Night Walker next (and House by the Haunted Hill of course).

  2. So glad you chose to discuss Homicidal. In my opinion it's Castle's best film. It's much more than just a Psycho clone. While it flirts with some similar themes as Hitchcock's masterpiece, it operates on it's own clever, crazy track really well. Really enjoyed your discussion on the little quirky treasure.
