Carnival of Souls is a chilling and slightly distrubing black-and-white cult film from 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.

SPOILER ALERT Characters Who Didn't Realize... (4 movies items)

"Mary After Mary drives off a bridge drag-racing some boys, Mary crawls out of the river with no memory of how she survived. Obviously, she’s dead as hell. However, unlike Bruce Willis in The Sixth Sense, everybody can see her and talk to her."

"10/1/17 Notoriously low-budget B-movie horror that, despite some very dodgy acting, is surprisingly creepy and effective in its tale of a woman who survives a car accident who seems drawn to a mysterious carnival. A genuine cult classic."

"Tunnelmallinen musiikki ja painostavat kuvat tekevät tästä varsinaisen pioneeriteoksen. Sain paljon ideoita itseni kehittämiseen ja niin edelleen. Juuri tällaiset elokuvat antavat voimaa ja uskoa omiin kykyihinsä. Enkä nyt puhu elokuvien tekemisestä."

"An instant favorite, this low-budget horror classic thrills and compels from beginning to end and features some of the best black & white camerawork of any film I've seen. The centerpiece of the film, the abandoned theme park, is particularly beautiful to look at. The film is like a twisted, uncontrollable dream, sometimes nightmare, that you dwell on long after it's over. "
