The Tingler

The Tingler ★★★★

Wrapped up All Hollows Eve with an old Vincent Price and William Castle favorite!

The plot is absolutely ludicrous- there's a centipede like creature that feeds off human fear in our spinal column- but is saved by a sharp script and solid lead performance (as usual) from Price.

Similar to "House on Haunted Hill"- he's trapped in a loveless marriage where both partners are trying to kill each other.

There's also a subplot with a silent movie theater owner and his wife.

And oh yeah, there's a scene where Price trips out on LSD!

For some reason- this is the Castle flick I revisit the most. This may have been the height of his gimmickry and I love it.
