What A Better Way To Celebrate Than With A Classic-Fright-Flick, Eh!?!

VINCENT PRICE

…In…

WILLIAM CASTLE‘s

THE TINGLER

!!! !!! !!! !!! !!! !!! !!!

!!! !!! !!! !!! !!!

!!! !!! !!!

!!!

!

I KNOW, RIGHT!!!

Nothin’ But The Best ’round Here!!!

Fo SHO Fo SHO!!!

My Younger Brother Got Me This One On The DVD For My Birthday…

…Being That It’s About The Only GREAT Flick Starring…

VINCENT PRICE

…I Had Yet To Purchase Myself.

Yeah…

…I Know…

…You Just GOTTA Love The Guy.

My BROTHER, I Mean.

Though, You Should Love Dear VINCENT, Also.

😉

Alright…

…So…

…In This One…

VINCENT PRICE = A SCIENTIST COMMITTED TO HIS WORK

THE TINGLER (Itself) = THE WORK

…And Dear VINCENT Has Discovered Something Amazing:

FEAR CAN KILL YOU
!!! !!!

But, It’s Not What You’re Thinking.

THE TINGLER

…Is A Part Of Us.

ALL OF US.

It’s A Creature of Sorts…

…And It Lives IN/ON/ALONG OUR SPINAL-CORD.

If You Cry Aloud And SCREAM…

…You MIGHT Survive.

If You Lock-Up…

…And HOLD-IN That Fear/Fright…

THE TINGLER

…Can CRUSH…

…And SEVER…

…Your SPINE!!!

The MORE Scared You Become…

…The MORE And MORE It GROWS…

…And The Pain-Level RISES…

…And RISES…

…AND RISES…

…Until YOU Are DEAD!!!

!!! !!! !!!

And YES, My Peeps…

THE TINGLER

…Lives Within US ALL…

…And…

VINCENT PRICE

…Wants A LIVING SPECIMEN!!!

!!! !!! !!!

Sooo…

…Whom Better To Experiment With Than A Woman Who Is BOTH…

DEAF And MUTE.

Trust Me, My Peeps…

VINCENT PRICE

…Isn’t Your “A”-TYPICAL Mad-Scientist.

I Mean…

…Really…

…What’s The Difference Between…

“AN INSANE MAN”

…And…

“A MAN COMMITTED TO HIS ART/WORK”

…Whatever His ART/WORK May Be???

Kinda Hard To Tell Sometimes, Ain’t It!?!

EXACTLY, My Peeps, EXACTLY INDEED!!!

!!! !!! !!!

I Sincerely Don’t Wanna Give This Flick Away…

…BUT…

…Let’s Just Say…

THE TINGLER

…Is NOT The CHEESE-FEST You’re Currently Picturing Within Your Mind’s Eye.

No.

It’s Actually A Pretty SERIOUS Flick.

It’s A SMART…

…UNIQUE…

…GENUINELY ENTERTAINING Little SHOCKER!!!

It’s Honestly An EXCEPTIONAL “Fright-Flick”…

…And One Of THE BEST HORROR FLICKS Of It’s Time…

…Or ANY TIME, For That Matter.

The Idea Snags You.

VINCENT PRICE

…Keeps You Engaged.

And The Film Itself Lulls You In…

…GRABS HOLD…

…And DOESN’T LET GO!!!

It’s Simply A Near-Perfect Little Film.

Sooo…

…Next Time You’re Looking For Something…

FUN

…Or…

UNIQUE

…Or…

UNEXPECTEDLY ENTERTAINING

…You Should Totally Give…

THE TINGLER

...The TIME/EFFORT/CREDIT It’s Due.

I’ve Loved This Film For Over 20-Years, Now.

And NOW…

…Thanks To My Brother…

…I FINALLY HAVE MY OWN COPY AGAIN!!!

WOOT!!!
!!! !!! !!!

Enjoy Your Day, My Peeps, If It’s Possible.

If It’s NOT Possible…

Then MAKE IT THAT WAY, DAMMIT!!!

    • Agreed. It Was Hugely Popular In Its Day, So It Is Rather Surprisingly Odd It Has Yet To Be Remade, or Rebooted, or Whatever It Is They Call It These Days.
      It’s A Classic Among Classics, That’s Fo SHO!
