Not since the four repeaters for King Kong vs. Godzilla have I been more disappointed in an unearthed ad campaign than what I found for The Tingler, perhaps William Castle’s most gonzoidal film of all time, relegated to second feature status to an also-ran Yul Brynner romantic comedy. However, unlike Emergo, looks like the Grand Theater took the plunge on Percepto and wired up a few seats.

And that, my friends, is awesome covered in awesome sauce.

Apparently, the Road to Ruin is a very slippery slope — as good girl Anne Dixon finds out, the hard way — which quickly rockets you down a path wrought with fast cars, booze and drugs, that ultimately dead-ends with an illegitimate teen pregnancy, and, horror of horrors, an abortion! And a lethally botched one, at that! Written and directed by Dorothy Davenport, a pioneer of sorts in the male dominated studio system, who apparently made it her life’s goal to warn others about the horrors of narcotics after her husband, writer/director Wallace Reid, died of an accidental overdose of morphine.
