"Vincent Price stars as an obsessed doctor who discovers that fear manifests itself as a parasitic creature, which grows on the spinal cords of terrified people. If they scream, The Tingler can be destroyed. If they don't, it will sever the spinal column and kill them. He successfully isolates and removes The Tingler from a deaf-mute (Judith Evelyn) who has been scared to death by her devious husband. Once captured, the Tingler escapes and runs amok in a crowded movie theater. Terror is loose, but can it be stopped?"--Container.

A Vincent Price classic on par with his House on Haunted Hill, and a delight to watch on a Drive In Classic movie evening with friends. Explores the intrguing concept that fear is a manifistation of a parasitic creature that attaches itself to your spine thus producing the emotion. It's one of my late night guilty pleasure movies. Price brings a versatility to the roles he plays onscreen and this is no exception.

Another amazing horror classic. The beauty of this film isn't just the flick itself, but all the history and stories surrounding it. When it was out in the theatres, some seats were equipped with a vibrating mechanism that would go off at certian times, scaring the bejeebus out of the viewers. And they would plant actors in the seats as well, to scream "there it is!!" People fainted, ambulances were called... it was a good time, a simpler time!
