An introverted church organ player named Mary (Candice Hilligoss), mysteriously emerges onto a river bank dazed and uninjured hours after a serious car accident. Mary is pursued by a terrifying, ghoulish apparition beckoning her. Although she tries to runfrom this grinning stalker and the nightmarish goings-on in an old pavilion, there is no escaping the fate that awaits her. It is nearly impossibe to watch this film and not be haunted by its combinaton of music, silence and imagery. For nearly four decades, Carnival of Souls has been a classic of low-budget horror. It is, most amazingly, the first and only feature film made by director Herk Harvey and writer John Clifford.
