About this movie

A young woman in a small Kansas town survives a drag race accident, then agrees to take a job as a church organist in Salt Lake City. En route, she becomes haunted by a bizarre apparition that compels her toward an abandoned lakeside pavilion. Made by industrial filmmakers on a modest budget, the eerily effective B-movie classic Carnival of Souls was intended to have “the look of a Bergman and the feel of a Cocteau”—and, with its strikingly used locations and spooky organ score, it succeeds. Herk Harvey’s macabre masterpiece gained a cult following on late-night television and continues to inspire filmmakers today.

No wonder you see certain horror movies you see today that creep you out so much. Carnival Of Souls did it, and it did it making it a classicly and historically. Carnival Of Souls is a very well executed movie about not knowing what's going on. Why. All that. There is the creepy soundtrack and great shots. And the performance by Candace Hilligoss is a classic one, one that is spot on. A classic creepy film that has a wonderfully creepy executed story.
