More Details on ‘Tingler’ Remake

“Neal Moritz is set to bring back the 1959 horror classic The Tingler for Columbia Pictures,” according to the Hollywood Reporter. “Greg Pace is set to write the feature. The original movie starred Vincent Price as a scientist who discovers an organism that grows along a person’s spine when that person enters a state of extreme fear. One way to defeat the creature is to scream. The movie was directed and produced by noted horror master William Castle, who was known as much for his gimmicks as his movies. For “Tingler,” Castle wired theater seats so that when a scream occurred during the movie, audiences felt a jolt.” Vincent Price has been part of dozens of fantastic films that would be ripe for a remake, I wouldn’t be surprised if we hear some other announcements soon.
