The Tingler Reviews
The Tingler is a classic horror film directed by William Castle and stars Vincent Price. Vincent Price plays a pathologist who believes that all human beings have a tingler in their bodies, causing them to face fears and will only be defeated if the person screams. When a deaf woman (Judith Evelyn) dies of fears, the theory is proven true when Price's autopsy on her reveals a "tingler" in her body. But the tingler is tough and goes loose on Price and his friends. Only Price can destroy this creature.
William Castle was known for his brilliant promotions, and here, it's no different, electrifying the theater seats making it so that people felt tingled when watching the movie. Alfred Hitchcock loved the film so much that it led him to make Psycho, one of his best-known films. As for The Tingler, Vincent Price's chilling performance and the film's tons of cheesy moments makes The Tingler a fun and sometimes scary 50's B-Movie. Yeah the film can be cheesy (such as the infamous "SCREAM FOR YOU LIVES" moment, the end where Vincent Price is talking to the audience, and an opening disclaimer with William Castle describing the effects in the film), but with the film's brilliant horror sequences, it's hard not to like The Tingler.
