A young woman in a small Kansas town survives a drag race accident, then agrees to take a job as a church organist in Salt Lake City. En-route, she becomes haunted by a bizarre apparition that compels her toward an abandoned lakeside pavilion. Made by industrial filmmakers on a modest budget, the eerily effective B-movie classic Carnival of Souls was intended to have “the look of a Bergman and the feel of a Cocteau”—and, with its strikingly used locations and spooky organ score, it succeeds. Herk Harvey’s macabre masterpiece gained a cult following through late-night television and continues to inspire filmmakers today.

First saw this on BBC 2 moviedrome. Great film,
An incredibly weird film for 1962. Way ahead of its time. Well worth getting IMO.

But also very dated for its portrayal of women, times have changed and women aren't hysterical nutcases that need to calm down, well maybe some are but you know you can say that these days Also people love to spoiler the twist to this film, there's another Bruce Willis film I can think of that maybe was influenced by this film. This is a very influential film though in the horror genre, definitely worth a watch.

POSITIVELY NO REFUNDS!

Dated in some ways perhaps but not in others at all. If youre a Romero fan, buy this to see what inspired him. I actually prefer it to Night of the Living Dead - its a spooky, eerie film that was below the radar for years. Way ahead of its time.

I agree. It looks as though it was made on a budget of $99 but I really like it.

A totally different era. The year I was born! It was still OK in those days to have white actors black up to play Arabs, Native Americans, etc. Thankfully times long gone. Who remembers the Black and White Minstrel Show? That offensive rubbish dragged on until 1978! In 1962 if a woman was hysterical in a film she was slapped across the face by a male character. Thankfully attitudes have changed and the world has mostly moved on.

Absolutely, today it's great that women have a voice and feel valued in society. It's great that idiot men are exposed for their bad behaviour. But as a society we haven't moved on from judging people. I'm not a celebrity apart from on this forum of course but my way of thinking is whatever anybody else thinks about me it's none of my business. You have to practice this to believe it, but realise just how powerful those words are, they are the epitomy of freedom. We are never free if we believe in the opinions of others regarding ourselves.
Thanks op, it's also showing on Amazon Prime for free in vibrant color!

I despise those colourised efforts. Why bother?
Gone up to £17.99 now. Glad I bought it at the lower price. Thanks OP.
