Tingle All the Way
She goes for a sit in the tub
For a soak and a bit of a scrub
But instead of some bubbles
She's headed for troubles
In a bloodbath that's literal, bub.
Deaf-mute Martha Higgins (Judith Evelyn) is scared into stimulating The Tingler (William Castle, 1959). This William Castle production starring Vincent Price is full of gimmicky effects, such as this striking use of color in an otherwise black-and-white movie. Image source: Bearded movie Reviews
