"Cheesy" if there ever was One!

Hard to believe this film actually cost $17K to make. I would have guessed less than 10. A couple of spooky spots when the ghoul is seen but otherwise zilch. I'll take the Exorcist every time.

hype

There are so many horror movie out there a lot better then this one that do not get the hype this movie got. It is not a good movie. I do not know why people like it. It has an awful story line. It also has awful acting. Is slow and boring. It is not scary at all. It has an awful ending. Do not see this movie.

Quirky Film With Relatively Unknown Cast

Suspence is the key here. While some might think of this as a cheaply made Twilight Zone, it actually has more elements of Psycho, though not as shocking. The movie starts with a drag race sequence with 3 men in one car and 3 women in the other. The 2 cars race onto a dangerous bridge, and the car with the women tragically crashes off the bridge. It lands in muddy and murky water.

While teams frantically search to find the car, suddenly Mary Henry (Candace Hilligoss) appears on shore, escaping from the car. She has no idea where the car or the other 2 girls are. Mary is a church organist, and she has been hired as an organist in another town. So she packs her suitcase and drives to her new town.

There, she meets a nice land lady, the churches minister, an amorous neighbor, and a doctor who wants to help her. She keeps seeing creepy men and other souls who frighten her. In her new town, Mary while refusing offers for support from everybody, is strangely drawn to some abandoned buildings outside of town. Here is where she finds a Carnival of Souls.

Dorothy Gale would be interested in this, the only movie ever filmed in "Centron Studios - 1621 W 9th Street, Lawrence, Kansas, USA". The film holds the viewer with all the strange happenings, and finally leads to an ending which makes sense, but yet is still kind of creepy. For a film with a Psycho sized budget, and much lesser known cast (most of the cast has done 5 roles or fewer in their career), this is pretty well done. The minister in the new town had the most well known small role in a movie called "Paper Moon." Worth a look for anyone looking for something totally different for 90 minutes.
