  • Killing Mrs Tingle Working


Comedy thriller. The eponymous Mrs Tingle is a particularly sadistic high school teacher given to handing low grades and sarcastic comments in equal quantities. When three particularly trodden-on students decide to visit her home to try and reason with her, Mrs Tingle is accidentally knocked unconscious in an unfortunate `incident'. The three are then faced with the task of keeping Mrs Tingle captive until she comes round to their way of thinking; unfortunately for them she proves less than co-operative.
