What is My Movie List? Read more...

If we were making a movie, this would be the “pitch”. The “sell”.

We’ll be the eager scriptwriters; you can play the part of the producer. Let us set the scene: imagine an online service, which gives you an opportunity to set up lists of movies, arranged according to particular categories. The love interest? Your love for movies.

What’s the plot? The plot is very simple, but engaging. We know you love movies and you want to share that love. But you want to share and find more movies that you’d love to watch—and this is where the plot develops. You invite your friends, you recommend the films you know and love to them and they do the same for you.

Pretty soon, you’re on a quest to see new films, to boldly go...sorry, we’re getting carried away. But you get the idea—My Movie List is a place where you can share films and discover new ones.

And like your favourite director, you’re in control. You can add movies, create custom lists—anything you don’t like ends up on the cutting room floor.

Thanks for your time. See you on My Movie List!

Roll the credits... Hide this :)

The Tingler (1959)

report incorrect or merge

Tagline/slogan:

When the screen screams you'll scream too...if you value your life!

Plot summary:

As famous for the gimmick with which the film was shown as for its genuinely spine-tingling story, The Tingler follows a pathologist (Vincent Price) as he searches for the cause of a series of deaths and discovers that the victims have a large insect-like creature growing on their spinal chords. The creature attacks when the people are frightened and is only killed when the host emits a blood-curdling primal scream. This is coupled with a subplot to scare the deaf-mute owner of a silent movie house to death. Along the way, a couple of characters are injected with LSD and begin hallucinating like mad. When one of the nasty monsters "escaped" into a movie theater, the film's gimmick would begin. In order to further frighten audiences, director William Castle had certain theater seats rigged with small Army surplus devices that would deliver a mild electric shock to the spine in hopes of inducing terrified screams. Castle also planted audience members who would scream and faint. The house lights would go up, the film would stop and ushers would carry the unconscious person out of the theater.

Director:

William Castle
