(1962) dir Herk Harvey w/Candice Hilligoss, Frances Feist, Sidney Berger [78 min]
We are thrilled to kick off this year’s Schlock Around the Clock festival with two brand new restorations of classic B-movies from the Academy Film Archive! Herk Harvey’s eerie, low-budget spook-fest CARNIVAL OF SOULS has become a cult classic after years of late night TV showings and a subsequent rediscovery and DVD release by the Criterion Collection but has rarely been screened in 35mm. A woman (Hillgoss) survives a drag race in a rural Kansas town, but becomes haunted by a bizarre apparition that compels her to an abandoned lakeside pavilion.
