Tickled - Movie Synopsis & Plot

One of the most talked-about films at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, TICKLED begins with reporter David Farrier stumbling upon a bizarre “competitive endurance tickling” video online, wherein young men are paid to be tied up and tickled, and reaching out to request a story from the company. But the reply he receives is shocking—the sender mocks Farrier's sexual orientation and threatens extreme legal action should he dig any deeper. So, like any good journalist confronted by a bully, he does just the opposite: he travels to the hidden tickling facilities in Los Angeles and uncovers a vast empire, known for harassing and harming the lives of those who protest their involvement in these films. The more he investigates, the stranger it gets, discovering secret identities and criminal activity.

Discovering the truth becomes Farrier’s obsession, despite increasingly sinister threats and warnings. With humor and determination, Farrier and co-director Dylan Reeve summon up every resource available to get to the bottom of this tickling wormhole.

MOVIE REVIEW

If you ever thought tickling was a sinister activity, now you’re not alone. The documentary Tickled (now available to watch on digital streaming options) paints itself as an exploration of the world of competitive tickling, but in reality it's an investigation into a twisted and pained individual with a fetish for tickling so strong he's willing to create new identities, commit fraud and wildly threaten legal action to protect his secrets.
