Carnival Of Souls (1962)

Mary Henry is enjoying the day by riding around in a car with two friends. When challenged to a drag, the women accept, but are forced off of a bridge. It appears that all are drowned, until Mary, quite some time later, amazingly emerges from the river. After recovering, Mary accepts a job in a new town as a church organist, only to be dogged by a mysterious phantom figure that seems to reside in an old run-down pavilion. It is here that Mary must confront the personal demons of her spiritual insouciance.

Hello. Currently I am writing a feature film about love, obsession, lies, pornography, brothers, protest, mental illness and insanity. I make music videos and paint as well. Reach out and lets make some magic together.

Upon my first viewing, Carnival of Souls left an impact on me with its eerie, sparse and haunting atmosphere. It has influenced my filmmaking and was a large inspiration for my senior thesis film, With Undying Love (a short horror film where a crazed grave-keeper keeps his zombie lover alive by feeding her fresh victims).
