If it’s possible for a premise to be both horrifying and incredibly stupid, The Tingler has that premise. Nails the execution, too.

Here are some poems.

I.

Cocooned in soft flesh
Legs skittering against bone
Masticating dread

II.

Hypothesis: Fear
cradles the spine, engorging.
Conclusion: Screams kill.

III.

Doctor discovers
Cronenbergian horror,
Gives it sex toy name.
