it's one of the few horror movies which still actually creeps me out.

i agree pretty surprising for the time frame, budget. but it def. has that feel to me that it was labor of love.

This is a great movie!! The Mike Nelson special colorized edition is awesome. (Mike Nelson from MST3K does the commentary)

I saw this on TV as a kid and it truly creeped me out!

Glad to see its gained "cult" status and wasn't forgotten like so many other old b+w low budget films.

I've mentioned this on another thread, but there are a lot of movies that have fallen out of copyright for one reason or another, and are offered up as a free download on the Internet Movie Archive. There are some true classics on this site, including some silent films (like Der Golem) and even, believe it or not, Night of the Living Dead.

"Carnival of Souls" was just on a Saturday night show that we get here in Pittsburgh called "It's Alive". I had never seen it before, but it was real creepy.
