The Tingler tells the story of a scientist who discovers a parasite in human beings, called a “tingler”, which feeds on fear. The creature earned its name by making the spine of its host “tingle” when the host is frightened. The Tingler remains most well known for a gimmick called “Percepto!”, a vibrating device in some theater chairs which activated with the onscreen action.
