Electric Sheep Film Club: Carnival of Souls

For the fourth meeting of the all new Electric Sheep Film Club at the Prince Charles Cinema off Leicester Square, we’re proud to be showing:

Herk Harvey’s Carnival of Souls (1962)

Still from Carnival of Souls by Herk Harvey

This seminal atmospheric horror film influenced such masters of fright and strangeness as George A Romero and David Lynch. After surviving a car crash that left her friends dead, Mary Henry is beset by nightmarish visions involving a menacing ghost and becomes increasingly isolated from her community. As daily life is gradually contaminated by the otherworldly, the film takes on the texture of a horrific dream, fluid and eerie, rich, dark, deep and infinitely memorable.

The film will be followed by an informal discussion with Electric Sheep writers in the bar.
Price: £5/£3.50 Prince Charles members
Certificate 15
Dir: Herk Harvey, USA 1962

Wednesday 5th August, 8pm, Prince Charles Cinema, 7 Leicester Place, WC2
