Retroist Carnival of Souls Podcast

Welcome to the Retroist Carnival of Souls Podcast. On this episode of the show, I start off by talking about how my entire family discovered the film Carnival of Souls together. While not exactly a family film, Carnival of Souls enchanted my family. Since seeing it that first time, I have never been able to not watch it when I have the chance. Hopefully I can entice you to do the same. During the show I talk about the making of this horror classic, the people in front of and behind the camera, the locations, the music, “the remake” and much much more.

    About ten years ago I was in Great Bend, KS visiting my in-laws when we found out there was going to be a showing of Carnival of Souls followed by a Q&A with some of the crew that afternoon. Naturally, we dropped whatever it was we were doing and headed to the theater. While I don’t remember anything particularly interesting coming up during the Q&A, seeing the movie on the big screen in a classic small town theater was definitely an experience to cherish.

    I discovered this movie by way of the “Combustible Edison” music track.

  3. Atari Adventure Square

    This surprisingly creepy movie played on First Choice in the 80s (The Movie Network’s canadian version of cable movie-only fare).
    Taped it, then watched it over and over again as this horror gem disguised as a low-grade B flick worked its way into my horror-fan brain.

    As you mentioned in the podcast, the music is sublimely terrifying as it weaves between church pastoral slipping into the foreboding reaches of Hell.

    One of the best Criterion outputs, proof that this great company has the best taste in exquisite cinema.

    I hope many people wander into this one after listening to the show.
