The Tingler

The Tingler ★★★½

A scream at the right time may save your life.

I wouldn't read the synopsis before watching this one, if I were you. Spoils the fun out of finding out what a tingler really is. A film with a macabre premise that gradually goes from morbid to downright bizarre, without any of the cast losing their straight face. Vincent Price is being his usual self. No matter what kind of weird stuff he pulls, you'll still root for the guy.

His cheating wife provides an extra narrative hook and the plot line with the movie theater owner and his deaf mute wife eventually becomes the icing on the cake. Yeah, that ending. Not the only genuinely freaky scene The Tingler has to offer. Price getting high for instance. Or the bathtub scene. And then there's the tingler itself. I screamed. Out of sheer fun.
