Castle of Fear

last night a few friends and yours truly thrilled to the B-Movie shlock horror of William Castle’s 1959 film “The Tingler” which follows Vincent Price as Dr. Warren Chapin, a pathologist researching the physiological effects of fear. Chapin’s search ranges from the prison morgue to movie theatre and leads him to discover the Tingler, an invertebrate creature in each of us which feeds on fear, can kill its host and is only defeated by the human scream. The film (shown in glorious celluloid) was part of the Babylon’s wednesday night Schr├Ąge Kino which is running a William Castle festival through August. Remember “When the screen screams you’ll scream too…if you value your life!”
