Could well be William Castle's masterpiece.
Like any genius pitchman, Castle straddles the line between carnival barker and conceptual artist
How any red-blooded American could hear 'Vincent Price's acid trip,' and not fall over themselves rushing to find a copy of the movie is beyond my comprehension.
| Original Score: 8/10
The Tingler is more gimmick than movie and it lacks the level of tension and terror of other productions, but the showmanship is still a lot of fun.
| Original Score: 3/5
Better than average Castle thriller with a wonderfully campy Vincent Price.
Real shock schlock.
A wonderful William Castle excursion, that is best seen in theaters unless you can wire your seats at home.
| Original Score: 2/5
