Carnival of Souls (1962)
|Take a ride with young church organist mary henry as she encounters a world where the difference between the living and the dead is impossible to discern. Each step plunges her deeper into the nightmareof the carnival of souls. Restored and in color for the first time.|
Editor's NoteMade in 1962 on an extremely low budget, Herk Harvey's classic CARNIVAL OF SOULS has become legendary for its ability to create a tensely creepy atmosphere with virtually no special effects. A young woman (Candace Hilligoss) is involved in a car crash when her car falls off a bridge while drag racing with some friends. After she pulls herself from the river, she moves to a new town to take a job as a church organist. Meanwhile, a distinctly eerie and hollow-faced man seems to be following her wherever she goes, while an abandoned lakeside amusement park beckons her with an almost gravitational pull. The effective organ score enhances the film to great effect, as do the bleak landscapes of Utah's salt flats.

Customer Reviews of Carnival of Souls
Does color add to the movie?5/20/2005
Purists of this outstanding, cult classic movie, may be divided over the addition to color of this wonderfully macabre thriller. Not much for shock value, but truly a classic horror movie. The acting is sublime and powerful, and the local cast offers some wonderful, memorable performance. Check out the land lady, for example. I had the pleasure of meeting Miss Hildgoss at a movie expo in 2000 and she is a wonderful person who shared a lot of insight. If you have not viewed, buy this - you will not be disappointed
It's an old movie, But it still scary!!5/2/2005
Hi you horror lover: I saw this movie a long time ago..it's black and white..(unless they change it.) and it can still kick Ass!!, The movie is entirely of this woman, who arrives at this town, and start's a new life there..she get's a job at a church, playing the organ.. The problem is that she feels she is being watch..all the time. then she start's seeing dead looking people who are always trying to grab her and take her away. One day she meets this nice good looking guy, who also moved into the apt. building she stays..and they go to this Carnival, (that is closed, and looks eerie). All of a sudden there are those dead looking people trying to drag her into the ocean..she starts acting strange herself..and the good looking guy is wondering what the hell is wrong with her. Anyway, this movie has spunk..action, dead looking zombie like people. a must see movie.. And I'm still waiting for a Re-make, because this movie, if it was re-done would do really well!! gloriagirl.
