A cult classic movie that inspired the likes of Night of the Living Dead, this little movie out of Kansas highlights some of the real everyday horrors such as gender conformity, trauma, and lurking threats. Carnival of Souls is a great lesson in male gaze of the 60s and how even an unpolished film can be great.
