1. CARNIVAL OF SOULS-1962
Over at the Armchair Squid you can see what the other guys and gals have chosen for this months pick. This was originally discussed by Jessica Marie and this is one horror film that I do love. If you are expecting amazing effects and a huge budget, this is not the film for you. This film was done on a shoestring and didn't do well when it first came out but is now considered a cult classic. Think Twilight Zone!
A young lady, with her friends ends up in a car accident, She comes out of the water and is attended to as she seems really out of it but, physically, unscathed. She accepts a job in another town as a church organist but is followed by a very creepy pasty guy who never says a word. On her way to the town, the bus drives by an old pavilion that she sees in the distance and she is strangely drawn to it. She finds a room and starts going about her life but at times she seems out of sync with everyone else. She literally lands in the arms of a psychiatrist who wishes to help her.
Even though the film shows the roughness of a B movie, it is intelligent, well acted and right down creepy. The music really lends to the story and moves the story along. The pavilion is real but I doubt it is still in existence.
If you get a chance, and you like The Twilight Zone, then take a gander at this film.
