"...Shrewd and energetic....TEACHING MRS. TINGLE reveals Williamson not only to be as accomplished a director as he is a writer but also his willingness to move beyond horror to psychological suspense..."

"...Helen Mirren's Tingle is an impressively realised character..."
From the king of teen angst and horror Kevin Williamson comes this story of straight-A student Leigh Ann (Katie Holmes) whose hopes for a scholarship are in jeopardy thanks to the tyrannical Mrs. Tingle (Helen Mirren). When Leigh Ann and her friends confront Mrs. Tingle about their grades, a series of mishaps lead to a wicked game of cat and mouse. Part black comedy, part teen melodrama, part revenge on Williamson's own Mrs. Tingle.

Teaching Mrs. Tingle
Written and directed by Kevin Williamson (SCREAM, SCREAM 2, TV's DAWSON'S CREEK), TEACHING MRS. TINGLE is a cool, cutting-edge comedy starring Hollywood's hottest young talent! Leigh Ann Watson (Katie Holmes -- TV's DAWSON'S CREEK, GO, DISTURBING BEHAVIOR) is the brightest girl at Grandsboro High ... but her dreams of a much-needed college scholarship are sabotaged when her history teacher, the dreaded Mrs. Tingle (Helen Mirren -- CALENDAR GIRLS), falsely accuses her of cheating! Desperate to prove her innocence, Leigh Ann conspires with her friends Luke (Barry Watson -- SORORITY BOYS) and Jo Lynn on a scheme that will teach Mrs. Tingle a lesson of her own! Before they know it, however, their plan spins hilariously out of control ... and becomes an endless comedy of errors! Also featuring Vivica A. Fox (KILL BILL VOLUME 1) and Molly Ringwald (SINCE YOU'VE BEEN GONE) -- you're sure to delight in all the fun and thrills of this hip movie treat!
