Musty TV's Maniacal Movie Countdown - Day 17

Tonight's TCM horror movie offerings are from 1958 and 1959.

At 5:00 P.M. it's the first Hammer Dracula movie, "Horror of Dracula." And this Drac ain't a glittery emo kid.

Then we have two William Castle movies. First up is "House on Haunted Hill" at 6:30 P.M. Castle's gimmick with this one was "Emergo," AKA a plastic skeleton that floated above the theater. "More startling than 3D!"

Finally there's "The Tingler" at 8 P.M. Set your cell phone on vibrate, stick it under a seat cushion, sit down, and have someone call you at the appropriate times to replicate the "Percepto!" gimmick that accompanied the flick's original release...
