William Castle’s THE TINGLER, starring VINCENT PRICE, DARRYL HICKMAN, PHILIP COOLIDGE and JUDITH EVELYN

William Castle was renowned for his gimmicky films. For THE TINGLER he had "Percepto," and it was a lulu: randomly selected seats in the theatre were wired with a small motor, and at a peak moment in the film these motors came to life and literally gave your bottom a buzz! But unless you happen to have a really warped sense of humor plus some mechanical aptitude, you'll have to forego the "Percepto" effect in your home theatre and settle for one of the most fun, weirdo stories to come down the street.
Dr. Warren Chapin (Vincent Price) is studying the effects of fear. In the process, he finds that fear causes a nasty, centipede-like creature to grow inside the human body along the spine. Release your fear by screaming, and the creature is destroyed; if for some reason you cannot scream, however, the creature merely grows larger and larger and kills you by crushing your spine. What the good doctor really wants, of course, is to lay his hands on one of these critters--and when a man murders his deaf-mute wife by scaring her to death, Dr. Vince gets his chance. Eventually THE TINGLER escapes into a movie theatre, and the seat-buzzing begins!
Price and company play it dead serious (which is the only way to do this kind of material and make it work), give it their all, and the film is as enjoyable as only schlock horror can be. Fans of the genre will hoot over the murder, Vincent Price's LSD trip, the scenes where THE TINGLER escapes into the theatre--not to mention the monster itself, which looks like a cross between an overweight centipede and a lobster. And yes, you really can see the wires! Who cares! It’s Price AND Castle! Wotta combination!
