Carnival of Souls

Back in Leeds for a few days before the family head to Rome this coming Monday, a holiday I'm looking forward to a great deal. Tonight I watched a DVD, the marvellous Carnival of Souls, expecting yet another shank of low-grade grindhouse nonsense. Instead this is something rather unique, poetic and unnerving, with a great organ score and an uncanny dream-like spell cast throughout. Sad to say that the Cine Salon is no longer a going concern, as this really would have been the perfect sort of thing to programme.
