Englisch It's a shame about the numerous poor edits here. It detracts from the overall impression of this Castle-esque "horror" comedy. William Castle is a legend in this regard because he knew how to play with the film and the audience like no one else. Zotz!, just with its title alone, is another example of his quirky mastery. Castle's humor resonates with me, and I enjoyed it in this essentially forgotten film as well. ()
