One of the great “atmospheric” horror films of the 60’s, featuring a remarkable performance by Candace Hilligoss as a church organist who is the “soul” survivor of a drag race crash. Moments after the car she has been riding in sinks to the bottom of a river and all are thought dead, she miraculously emerges from the river dazed but okay. Thus begins her sojourn into the world of dead souls. This film is a marvel to watch, not only for Hilligoss’s icily erotic portrayal of the talented, but schizophrenic organist, but for the chilling atmosphere created by the forlorn landscapes of Lawrence, Kansas and Salt Lake City, Utah... especially the “fun house” on the isolated salt flats.

Starring Candace Hilligoss, Sidney Berger, Frances Feist. Produced and directed by Herk Harvey. B&W.
