Never the less, it is one of the best inexpensive horror films this side of Night of the Living Dead and is a favorite of thrifty TV programmers. An all out ratings war errupts between Cinema Insomnia host Mr. Lobo, Fly By Night Theater host Francois Fly and Horror House hostess Lady Skankenstein and they all decide to compete with each other by showing th same film on the same night, Carnival of Souls. But no matter who wins, the viewers loose!
Candace Hilligoss stars as a drag racing church organist who goes soul searching and finds herself drawn to the haunted Saltair Pavilion, where ghostly ghouls are waiting to punch her eternal dance card. This semi-artsy horror film was made by independent filmmaker Herk Harvey and a bunch of his pals, neighbors and business partners in Kansas and Utah. This thrice wrapped tale of "a stranger among the living" wanders throuh Mr. Lobo's wacky wrap-arounds, retro TV commercials, drive-in trailers and guest appearances.
