Mary Henry ends up the sole survivor of a fatal car accident through mysterious circumstances. Trying to put the incident behind her, she moves to Utah and takes a job as a church organist. But her fresh start is interrupted by visions of a fiendish man. As the visions begin to occur more frequently, Mary finds herself drawn to the deserted carnival on the outskirts of town. The strangely alluring carnival may hold the secret to her tragic past.

“One of the most original and unsettling horror movies to come out of America during its B-movie saturated, drive-in friendly period.”
Film4

“A genuinely creepy thriller, humble in scope and lacking some polish, but executed with ghoulish intuition.”
Nick’s Flick Picks

“Harvey leaves enough questions unanswered in this twilight zone to ensure that Carnival Of Souls enjoys a haunting afterlife in the viewer’s mind.”
