The Black Museum Presents: Carnival of Souls

The Black Museum celebrates its arrival at The Royal Cinema with a screening of Herk Harvey’s nightmarish Carnival of Souls. At this introduction screening, details will be revealed about what the Black Museum has in store for the months ahead.

One of the most haunting horror landmarks of the 1960s, noted as the missing link between The Twilight Zone TV series and Goerge A. Romero’s Night of the Living Dead, Carnival of Souls follows a woman who barely escapes a deadly car crash, and finds she is haunted and followed by cadaverous ghouls who chase her through abandoned dance hall. Featuring minimal effects work, Harvey’s low-budget indie shocker is a triumph of atmosphere, bursting with arresting black and white imagery, an eerie organ score and touches of surrealism.

Curators Paul Corupe and Andrea Subissati will be on hand to introduce the film and discuss the Museum’s format, which ranges from talks about film theory and genre studies to practical discussions by industry professionals.
