Oh man, you have to love William Castle. He took part film, part performance art, and merged the two in simple, yet effective ways. I watched this DVD for the first time tonight, and in some ways it worked, and other ways not. It's just difficult to live vicariously, forty years too late for the effect of sitting in a sit, rigged to vibrate at key moments to scare the living crap out of you. The story of the Tingler is silly beyond belief. Sometimes you wonder how Vincent Price kept a straight face. However you to remember that William castle lived in the moment, his movies crossed over from the screen into the theater. Transcending 3D cinema, his films literally reached into the very seats people were sitting in. It's hard to experience that now, of course. Judged purely on the merits of the film, it's hard to recommend The Tingler. Oh sure, it has it's moments. The scene in the bathroom (which is strangely not even mentioned in the 15 featurette) is pretty darn amazing, for instance. Most of all though, when watching it, you're basically revelling in the crazy world of William Castle, a man who thought the experience of a film was not over when the final edit was done. The dude would haunt you right in the cinema! A great DVD, by the way. Looks good, some nice extras. Recommended to those hooked on classic cinema. You know who you are!
