The Tingler

The Tingler ★★★

Even without the buzzing in your seat, this film is everything there is to enjoy about a William Castle production. Goofy props are brought to life by Vincent Price (who, in the entirety of his film career, provides one of my favorite performances while tripping on 'LSD'), a pathologist who is among the first to discover that within us all lives a parasite that lives and grows off of fear. Even though this plot was all set up simply to provide an all-encompassing movie-watching experience in the theater, it still holds up because of the performances and the fun and passion Castle infuses his film with.
