The Tingler (1959)

3.5/4

I had the excellent pleasure of seeing The Tingler in a cinema. Sadly, they didn’t manage to electrocute the seats as William Castle would have wanted, but we were still treated to a mad scientist introducing the film for us and all the audience even got their own death certificate! The film itself was a superb mix of 1950s B-movie cheese and genuine quality filmmaking. Vincent Price plays the world’s most unethical scientist who fears he may have discovered a parasite that lives on the spine of every human and feeds off fear, and he also injects himself with LSD. What’s not to like?
