Tickled Trailer: A Documentary About Competitive Tickling


David Farrier and Dylan Reeve’s Tickled seems to be enjoying a pretty solid run on the festival circuit and is quickly becoming one of the most talked about documentaries of the year. The film’s initial hook is that it purports to explore the quirky subculture surrounding the world of competitive tickling, but then it soon swerves into a whole other unexpected direction. We had a spoiler-free discussion about the movie on Episode #562 of the Film Junk Podcast and now this week Magnolia has released an official trailer that peels back a little more of the mystery. Don’t watch it if you prefer to go in completely cold, but if you’re dying to know more, they manage to avoid spoiling the major twists. If anything, the trailer is merely guilty of overselling them a little bit. Tickled hits select theatres on June 17th; check out the trailer after the jump and see what you think.
