CARNIVAL OF SOULS - Gene Moore - "At The Bar" (1962)

Of all characters, this couple really creeps me out! She's not a pig, according to his friend, but is a mouse as far as he is concerned. He's a weasel jerk, but she only wants to be with him! They're both nuts, so I guess they just deserve each other, and we deserve to hear the cool sleaze on the jukebox by Gene Moore & just wait til they go up to the room. Candace Hilligoss is terrifically icky as Mary Henry. Sidney Berger who plays loser John Linden, was only in 2 movies, this one & another movie by Wes Craven made in 1988, called, you guessed it, "Carnival Of Souls," & went on to be the head of the Drama Department at the University Of Houston!

My favorite memory of Candace Hilligloss was when she asked the audience at a horror convention if anyone was interested in remaking CARNIVAL OF SOULS starring her, for the princely sum of $1 million dollars. Wes Craven did an in-name version of the film, and Hilligloss denounced Craven as a "bad artist!"
