Gifted young organist Mary Henry is riding in a car with friends when the car is forced off the road, plunging from a bridge into the river below. Mary's friends die instantly; miraculously, she emerges from the water.

But Mary is changed. She becomes increasingly detached from everyday life, displaying an emotional coldness which those she encounters readily attribute to grief and shock. But the nightmare world that Mary now inhabits is one of transition: she is helplessly caught between the living and the dead. Mary moves to Salt Lake City, but is haunted by the spectral presence that lurks in the shadows of its derelict pleasure pavilion. She finds herself drawn inexorably towards the pavilion and its demonic Carnival of Souls'

Every inch a cult classic, from its iconic opening titles (reminiscent of Hitchcock's Psycho) to its terrifying final sequences, Carnival of Souls is cited as an inspiration by, among others, David Lynch, Wes Craven and George A. Romero. The complexity of its themes and eerily atmospheric direction and cinematography, with minimal reliance on special effects, are widely acknowledged; Carnival of Souls, directed by Herk Harvey and first released in 1962, transcends the horror genre to become a unique work of unsettling and enduring power.

Is this the same Carnival of Souls that is in every pound shop and on every budget dvd label in the country, normally on double or treble bill titles?

I doubt it will be exactly the same, this one is possibly remastered etc. But as it aint been released yet, it can't be the same as the ones you've seen. Maybe you are thinking of the Wes Craven remake!?!?

This is the product page from the release company

They've added a commentary and 'booklet' so I would at least expect the video to be on par with the Criterion release.
