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.

TDcore's Horror Journal 2018: Pt. 4 (50 movies items)

" This is one of the great cult classics, and is cited by George A. Romero himself as an inspiration for "Night Of The Living Dead". It's certainly a creepy, atmospheric little film, but not a fully coherent one. I have a bit of a pet peeve for films with a "twist" ending like this one has, especially when they do very little to hide it from the audience. With this film, it's clear almost from the beginning where the whole thing is going. It may well be one of the first films to use this twist, "

"Herk Harvey’s Carnival of Souls certainly benefits from the discrepancy that exists between its fantastically subjective vision and raw and inconsistent vérité formality. The filmmaking includes compositions of startling sophistication as well as flat images and threadbare effects that wouldn’t be out of place in a 1950s-era drive-in monster movie, collectively conjuring a kind of uncanny banality that would greatly influence George Romero and David Lynch, among others. Harvey creates a fi"

scary bitches: 10 alluring horror heroines (10 movies items)

" Mary Henry, the Persephone of Utah This just might be my favourite film of all time, so I will basically become full of empty praises while I write this like Herk Harvey is my lord and I am his humble sheep. The atmosphere you get from this film is in between dreamy and nightmarish. And Mary seems trapped in this hazy world of ghosts and ghouls flanked by piety and sleaze as well. She emerges unscathed from a traumatic car accident that nobody else survives, and proceeds to go on a road "

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."
