13 Ghosts (1960) Australian Daybill

Regular price £75.00 £0.00
Tax included.

William Castle's haunted house classic filmed in Illusion-O, where the special 'ghost viewer' allows you to see the apparitions in an otherwise empty shot. The boast that the ghosts can be seen in 'Ectoplasmic Color' merely means they are occasionally visible with a reddish tinge through the viewer, in the otherwise black and white film.

Written by Robb White, (also The House on Haunted Hill) the house (exteriors shot at the Winchester Mansion in San Jose) contains twelve ghosts that can only be set free by a thirteenth, as well as a sinister housekeeper, played by the Wicked Witch of the West herself, Margaret Hamilton. Illusion-O isn't one of Castle's finest, but still an important step in his history of gimmicks.
