William Castle Novel - What Was It Called?

About 30 or 35 years ago I read a fictional novel that featured a character based on William Castle. The novel was written from from the perspective of a screenwriter or avid fan. The William Castle type character was very into the Occult, and the denouement of the paperback was very dark. What was this book called?

Thanks for asking this question, now I have a new book I want to read. I had no idea Theodore Rozsak, a prominent social critic of the Sixties "movement," also wrote fiction! I read some of his books in high school for a paper I wrote on that era and they really stuck with me.
