An obsessed pathologist discovers and captures a parasitic creature that grows when fear grips its host.
This movie was recently shown on the Svengoolie show. They claimed it was a digitally restored print.
One of the main possible changes is that the wires used to move the tingler have been erased.
They may have also added a few flashes of color during "Dr. Chapin's" LSD visions in his lab.
Dr. Warren Chapin:
I came because I was a bit worried about your wife, a shock like that can have bad after effects you know.
Oliver 'Ollie' Higgins: You know I've been worried about her too, she hasn't eaten hardly a thing and she can't sleep. Ever since she saw that blood, she just roams ...
When Mrs. HIggins is under the influence of the drug, a hand with a hatchet appears through a doorway. Mrs. Higgins backs away, and a few moments later, the hand throws the hatchet toward her. The hatchet then travels across the room and sticks to a table. The wire that the hatchet is attached to as it slides down the wire and hits the table is clearly visible.
Columbia provided a slightly revised version for drive-ins. The black-out sequence with Vincent Price saying the The Tingler is loose in the theatre, is replaced with black footage with William Castle saying that The Tingler is loose in the drive-in and actors screaming that The Tingler is in the back seat. The Columbia exchanges could simply splice in the replacement footage to make an existing print suitable for drive-in bookings.
