YMMV / The Tingler


  • Fridge Brilliance: The one Tingler that was the main antagonist in the movie was harvested from a mute woman - someone who couldn't scream. We find out relatively quickly that its preferred method of killing is strangulation. Why? Because you can't scream if you're choked to death. If you die without screaming, a brand-new, full-power Tingler is waiting to be pulled out of you. In short, it was trying to reproduce.
  • Paranoia Fuel: Everyone has a Tingler in them. The only way to be safe is to scream.
