What have critics said?

"Eerie little film. ... Imaginative low-budget effort." -- Leonard Maltin's Movie Guide

"Absurd but occasionally compelling independently made horror film which would have been better in half-hour form." -- Leslie Halliwell

"It ventures to the edge of camp, but never strays across the line, taking itself with an eerie seriousness." -- Roger Ebert,

Is this available on DVD?

Countless distributors have released Carnival of Souls (1962) onto VHS and DVD, sometimes with a bad picture and unintelligible sound. This film seems to be in the public domain, which means any distributor can legally sell copies without paying royalties. Beware. Many small distributors market copies of public domain films with poor picture and sound. Others are more reputable and deliver good transfers of the best available prints. Shop around. We recommend The Criterion Collection's DVD release. You can find it on here.

Watch Carnival of Souls (1962) on: here

There are two different versions of Carnival of Souls: a shorter Theatrical Version and the Original Version also known as Director's Cut. The Theatrical Version is almost 5 minutes shorter but it is safe to assume that most of the differences are the result of a bad copy. A detailed comparison between both versions with pictures can be found here.
