“It retains an atmosphere of melancholic, surreal dread.”—Adam Smith, Empire Magazine

Produced by a director of educational films on a miniscule budget, this chilling B-movie supernatural classic had the ambition to have “the look of a Bergman and the fells of a Cocteau.” With its sparse locations and unnerving organ score, this macabre masterpiece retains its cult following and has been restored in 4K.

A young woman from a small Kansas town survives a drag race accident and accepts an offer to become a church organist in Salt Lake City. While en route, she is compelled by a foreboding ghostly figure to visit an abandoned lakeside carnival grounds. 1962, U.S., DCP, 78 minutes. Recommended for 16+.

Screened in conjunction with the exhibition Supernatural America: The Paranormal in American Art.
