Not bad but way too short., 28 October 2009
Author: planktonrules from Bradenton, Florida

This film is included as a DVD extra on the combination disk of HOMICIDAL and STRAIT-JACKET--definitely the best of the DVDs in the recent William Castle collection, as these two full-length films are both among the director's best.

An important thing to point out is that you should NOT see this featurette before seeing HOMICIDAL. That's because this short film is jam-packed full of spoilers and it probably will detract from your enjoyment of HOMICIDAL.

In this short, they talk about the making of HOMICIDAL--in particular its gimmick of the 'coward's corner'--yet another silly Castle innovation in order to draw attention to his film. And, not surprisingly, much of the short focuses on Castle the master showman.

Overall, a worthwhile extra, though it was amazingly short and I really think they should have given much, much more information about the film.
