SYNOPSIS

"When a pathologist (Vincent Price) discovers a creature that feeds and grows on fear, he quickly realizes the key to its defeat. He captures it to test his hypothesis. As the creature evolves and atrocity levels rise, the Doctor’s theories distill into one single urgent lesson: “please, do not panic, but scream!... Scream for your lives.”

This film’s just-wacky-enough execution of excruciatingly frightening ideas may just keep its viewers from requiring intensive therapy.

Released the very same year as House on Haunted Hill, The Tingler reprises and intensifies the same camp horror theatricality and B-movie zeal from William Castle’s wild imagination. The delicate dissonance between Castle’s gimmicks and Vincent Price’s outstanding performance is perfectly showcased in this triumphant return of the pioneering duo." Ithaca Fantastik
