The Tingler might have one of the flimsiest plots of all time. From the idea that something appears on your spine when your frightened, to the idea that a man, who's wife just died is hauling her body around town and no one even thinks twice about it, this movie is just plain weird. But that's also what makes it charming! There's a fun about The Tingler, or any William Castle movie really, that captures a moment in American film history. The place in time between the Universal monsters and the 'realistic' monsters like Leatherface or Jason.
While it won't make you frightened or even tense, The Tingler will entertain you completely! I'm giving The Tingler 4 out of 4 cigars, it's one of the best William Castle movies and it's just plain fun. Check it out ASAP!
