    I only saw House on Haunted Hill on Netflix which is the restored version from Warner Bros. that I assume is much better to watch than the public domain version.

    Anyway, I know that The Tingler is part of the William Castle DVD set that also includes his version of The Old Dark House for Hammer Films. Is it any good?

    Man i wish they stayed doing the fun house thing that would make everything more scary. They should bring it back.

    Wow! This is one of the best concepts I ever heard for a horror movie! It’s fantastic!

    Haha I agree it’s a great concept for a horror movie, a little cheesy for today’s standards, but none-the-less a great concept.

    Is it just me or does William Castle look like FDR?

    It lasted til the 80’s because my Aunt told me about people throwing bags of rubber spiders in Arachnaphobia 😛 They were probably movie viewers and not studio people though!

    William Castle is a marketing and film-making genius. Sure, he made bad B movies with ridiculous premises, but they had great casts (led by Vincent Price of course) great writing and wonderful old fashioned cinematography with some surprisingly creepy or scary scenes here and there. On top of that the gimmicks used to promote the movies were just awesome and a load of fun. Someone needs to take an old run down theater from that era (like the one in my home town) and show these films on a semi-regular basis utilizing all of the fun house style tricks that made them famous. I would love to see these movies the way they were originally shown.

      Totally agree. That would b the greatest thing ever.

    *SPOILER ALERT* This movie has multipole scenes of people trying to kill their spouse. Moral of the story is marriage is shit. It’s not a great movie but it’s hella fun to watch. The gimmicks and the actual in theatre tingler sounds awesome! Mos def woulda made it an experience you’d never forget. Vincent Price is great as the Dr. and his character is always coming up with sharp comebacks for his bitch of a wife.
