" "A weird tale of the unnatural- After a traumatic accident, a woman becomes drawn to a mysterious abandoned carnival. Mary Henry is enjoying the day by riding around in a car with two friends. When challenged to a drag, the women accept, but are forced off of a bridge. It appears that all are drowned, until Mary, quite some time later, amazingly emerges from the river. After recovering, Mary accepts a job in a new town as a church organist, only to be dogged by a mysterious phantom figure that seems to reside in an old run-down pavilion.
It is here that Mary must confront the personal demons of her spiritual insouciance. CAST includes Candace Hilligoss, Frances Feist, Sidney Berger, Art Ellison, Reza Badiyi, Herk Harvey (as "The Man"). BEHIND THE SCENES TRIVIA : In an article in the 9/15/1997 edition of "Variety", director George A. Romero noted this film was the inspiration for NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD (1968). Herk Harvey's crew only consisted of five other people besides himself.
Candace Hilligoss' agent refused to represent her any further after seeing this film. Candace's entire film career consisted of appearing in two low-budget horror films where the director played the main undead antagonist, "Carnival of Souls" (1962) and "The Curse of the Living Corpse" 1964 (starring Roy Scheider). During an interview in 1998 for the premier of a re-make of "Carnival of Souls", now CULT ICON, Candace Hilligoss was quoted saying, This is the kind of movie that I would PAY... Not to let me in the theater. I would give them eight dollars NOT to allow me inside, because the agony of sitting through this crap is so great that it would be worth eight dollars to me to be permitted to stay far, far away!
