Yet there is something about the hint of the supernatural, the chance of possibly viewing something that has so far gone unseen and didn’t quite make it to the grave, that draws audiences into such a tale. Even the youngest viewers are familiar with stories of ghostly haunts and Things That Go Bump In The Night.

He worked with Orson Welles on "The Lady from Shanghai," but that's one of his few titles most film fans today would recognize. That is, until the late 1950s. Like others, he took close notice of the sudden revival of popularity of horror movies, and decided to try his hand.

They cordially (and later not so cordially) detested each other, but when Robert Aldrich asked them to costar in his wonderful "What Ever Happened to Baby Jane," they buried the hatchet long enough to make the film -- which turned out to be a big hit. Suddenly horror movies -- mostly thrillers, really -- with aging lady stars became all the rage; Tallulah Bankhead, Joan Fontaine, Geraldine Page, Ruth Gordon and others made their own thrillers, and Crawford and Davis continued doing them for several years. Some of their choices weren't ...

His frequent writer Robb White came up with a daring, even brash idea that, for most audiences, works just as intended. It will not be revealed here. The result is one of Castle's best films, taut, involving and suspenseful; it's not until you think about it later that you realize the story is pretty thin, and that the cast seems strangely underpopulated. The first time through, for most it does its job with dispatch and even some sense of style. It was good enough that the reviewer for "Time" magazine grandly (and wrongly) declared it better than "Psycho."

However, of course, it's because he made so many movies (hardly all horror) back when that directors fondly remember him today, and cast him in these big movies.
