A " Carnival Of Souls" for the Blu-Ray Generation !
29 June 2009 | by guestar57See all my reviews

Starring Kristin Kerr,Lizzie Strain & Julie Strain,Trent Haaga and Llloyd Kaufman. "Surreal Horror",An ignored Genre ? This Ramzi Abed film breaks down walls and formats and all filmaking rules ! I kept getting this nagging feeling while watching that I had seen Trent Haaga's character before,LIGHT BULB goes off : Herke Harvey as the spectre in CARNIVAL OF SOULS ('62).Trent keeps popping up in this Black Dahlia mystery and he has evil intentions,Usually. This is a good movie with SAW-like actions towards victims,great acting by all the cameos and Kristin Kerr is a modern day Elisabeth Short (With an almost Betty Page fetish tone). Lots of extras on this 2 disc set including making of and complete separate soundtrack.
