Carnival of Souls
Directed by Herk Harvey
A woman begins seeing mysterious ghostly figures following her after a car crash in this creepy cult classic from 1962 which anticipates the films of George Romero and David Lynch. After specializing in industrial films, director Herk Harvey (who plays one of the ghouls) poured his heart and soul into what would be his only narrative feature. But after an initial box office failure, CARNIVAL became a cult classic to future generations, who connected with the film's atmospheric TWILIGHT ZONE-meets-Ingmar Bergman style. A must-see film for any horror fan.

classic film,amazing visuals and a very memorable ending.Check it out
I'm watching this for the second time. It is one of my favorite types of horror movies--creepy and atmospheric.
In addition to the film's captivating and unsettling essence, there was a masterful approach to sound design, cinematography, and the timeless themes of loneliness, faith, and the human condition (particularly from a female POV). I would give it an extra skull if I could, 6/5.
Creepy and eerie today--I bet this movie scared the hell outta folks in the 1962!
The comparisons to a David Lynch film are appropriate: a lot of the scenes only make sense in isolation but for together cool
