Film Studies Minor Event

October 31, 2014, Halloween Horror Film Screening - Carnival of Souls, 7:00 p.m., North Deck
CARNIVAL OF SOULS is a surreal -- and often times hilarious -- cinematic tumble through the strange world of a young woman haunted by the past as she tries to live an ordinary life as a church organist in a small town in Utah. Beautifully shot in black and white on a super-low budget, this rarely-seen picture teeters between art film, high camp, and so-bad-its-good horror film. FREE and OPEN to the public, so spread the word! Bring blankets and chairs and picnic and costumes and friends. Bike in or take the rail.
