The Tingler

The Tingler ★★★★½

Giant Bugs

There is more to Castle than mere Hitckcock’s copycat, in many ways the director was wildly ahead of his time with his use of meta-theatricality and audience participation. Had Castle been putting on unwatchable adaptations of Greek drama with copious nudity (al la Dionysius in ‘69) he would be praised as a visionary by snobby critics/scholars and studied by bored college students in especially pretentious theater classes. Fortunately for all of us, Castle made art that is actually enjoyable to watch.
