THE TINGLER, 1959. Original Insert (14” x 36” / 46 x 118 cm) rolled movie poster starring Vincent Price and Judith Evelyn. Directed and produced by William Castle. “Do you have the guts to sit in this chair?” “Percepto! Newest and most starting gimmick on the screen!” “Can you take it when The Tingler breaks loose?” Dr. Warren Chapin (Vincent Price) becomes obsessed with his theory that the spine-tingling sensation that humans feel when they feel fear is a result of a parasite that lives inside each of us. As fear grows, so does the creature. The only thing to keep it from killing us is our ability to scream. Dr. Chapin soon finds the perfect subject to test his theory, an unsuspecting deaf and mute woman. He uses LSD to induce intense nightmares to fuel her fears. The creature soon grows out of control without the woman’s ability to suppress the creature with screams.
The Tingler continues to be well known thanks to the theater experience gimmick, “Percepto!”. It was a vibrating device that was installed in some theater seats that was activated with coordinating onscreen action.
