On October 2, 2011, the late William Castle will pull off
one more act of showmanship: “releasing” his first book, FROM THE GRAVE: THE PRAYER. And in
celebration of that event, FANGORIA is teaming up with the Castle family and
giving our readers the chance to take a page out of THE TINGLER’s wild ad
campaign and “Scream for Your Life!” Three lucky winners will receive a signed
copy of the book, plus a classic piece of vintage memorabilia from the Castle
vaults! Here’s our first entry, and we're kicking off with a bang!
Our first scream of the day comes from an incredibly cool source. Here's the email we received:
"My name is Kathy Gori. I did some of the screaming for John Carpenters' HALLOWEEN. In fact, I dubbed the voice of Michaels' older sister, his first victim. You first see the character naked combing her hair in the mirror, then Michael stabs her. I did a lot of screaming for John that day."
If you want to submit your own scream, simply pick up your
iPhones, webcams or any other video recording device and film yourself doing
your best Hollywood horror-style scream—the louder and more dramatic the
better—and send an MPEG to
We’ll send the video straight to the gloriously undead William Castle and his
charming (although still rather bloodthirsty) daughter, Terry Castle, who will
watch ’em and judge ’em. We’ll then start posting the best of them online at
Closer to the release of THE PRAYER, the Castles will pick
their three favorite screams and the winners will receive, as noted earlier, a
signed copy of the book as well as a classic piece of vintage memorabilia from
the Castle vaults. So polish your pipes, stick your mug in front of some sort
of lens and give William Castle your best full-throttle scream! And remember:
“A scream at the right time might save your life!”
And win you some cool junk!
Thanks for the submission and starting us off Kathy. It was a scream!
