Vincent Price plays a prison pathologist who discovers that the source of fear in the human body is a spinal-cord arthropod that he dubs “The Tingler.” The only cure for it? Scientifically speaking: screams! Producer-director William Castle sets much of his film in a silent movie theater run by a deaf-mute, and the film’s ingenious climax finds the audience being pursued by an unleashed Tingler. Throw in some self-experimentation with hallucinogens and a gory sequence in which vivid color pops out in the otherwise black-and-white film, and you have one of Castle’s most popular entertainments.  BACK TO TOP >
