Horrible Imaginings Film Festival – Feature Film: The Tingler 60th Anniversary!

Our 10th Annual Horrible Imaginings Film Festival retro screening! An obsessed pathologist discovers and captures a parasitic creature that grows when fear grips its host. Plus, Vincent Price trips on LSD!


It has been 60 years since the great William Castle unleashed his most notorious gimmick to almost literally SHOCK his audiences during screenings of THE TINGLER. The gimmick, coined PERCEPTO, included outfitting random cinema seats with vibrating motors that would “shock” people at a key moment in the film. To celebrate this anniversary, we are going to bring it back! Are you ready to SCREAM?!

Note: Single event tickets WILL be available on the day of the screening for $13.
