Carnival of Souls is yet another case of how 60's horror films often feels years ahead of their time. It creates a unnerving atmosphere of anxiety and paranoia which most films of today would be jealous of.
Candace Hilligoss perfectly encapsulates her character's troubled mind in the film's lead performance, making for uncomfortably relatable portrayal.
The stark black and white cinematography doesn't only look absolutely gorgeus, but it also captures the film's thoroughly disheartening nature.
Carnival of Souls is an altogether incredibly well made film and I can only imagine it growing more enjoyable on future watches.
