The Tingler


Dr. Warren Chapin is a pathologist who regularly conducts autopsies on executed prisoners at the State prison. He has a theory that fear is the result of a creature that inhabits all of us (Source: IMDB)

You know that tense feeling you have when you’re frightened? That tightening of the spine.. that.. Tingling..? There’s a reason for that. Each of us has a parasitic, giant, insect attached to our spine, who feeds off our fear. And the only way to free yourself from the grip of fear.. is to Scream! Scream for your lives!

This is a great old movie. Bringing the silly gimmicks of William Castle to life as he would attach electric buzzers to random seats in the theater. As you watched, he would send a small jolt through your back. Ahh that 50’s.. when public safety wasn’t a concern.

Though not originally meant for the kids, the ridiculously silliness of this campy film makes for some family fun. See it!
