This one's a strange little bird. Liked it a lot. Haunting.

I'd give it a thumbs up only because the low budget and bad acting (Hilligoss was fine) lends itself to the otherworldly tone of the film. Seems like it was probably an inspiration for David Lynch. I loved the dancing ghouls.

Very cool classic horror movie. Haunting imagery and an eerie organ score sets a very creepy tone. If David Lynch directed an episode of the twilight zone, it would probably be very much like Carnival of Souls. A must see for all horror fans.

A lousy flick. I liked the acting and camera photography, but that is all there is to this film.

A bad, very bad, version of Ambrose Bierce's An Occurence at Owl Creek Bridge meets the Twilight Zone's The Hitchhiker. It may be free here but do not waste your time.
