TINGLER REMAKE DETAILS
According to The Hollywood Reporter, a remake of the William Castle favorite THE TINGLER is on the way - and not from Dark Castle Entertainment, which up till now had cornered the market on Castle reduxes. Instead, Neal Moritz and his Original Films company (also behind the PROM NIGHT update) will produce the tale of a creature that, rather than feeding on fright as it did in the original, now kills its victims with terror, and is discovered by a scientist working on a medical cure for fear. Greg Pace, who also has a children?s horror script called TRICK OR TREAT in the works at the Klasky Csupo company, is writing the new TINGLER, which will be released by Columbia. No word yet as to whether theaters will be wired to shock random audience members.
