Carnival of Souls is a 1962 American independent horror cult classic film written, produced, and directed by Herk Harvey, and starring Candace Hilligoss. Its plot follows Mary Henry, a young woman whose life is disturbed after a car accident. She relocates to a new city, where she finds herself unable to assimilate with the locals, and becomes drawn to the pavilion of an abandoned carnival; director Harvey also appears in the film as a ghoulish stranger who stalks her throughout. Filmed in Lawrence, Kansas and Salt Lake City, Carnival of Souls was shot on a budget of $33,000, and Harvey employed various guerrilla filmmaking techniques to finish the production. It was Harvey's only feature film, and did not gain widespread attention when originally released as a double feature with The Devil's Messenger in 1962. Set to an organ score by Gene Moore, the film has been contemporarily noted by critics and film scholars for its cinematography and foreboding atmosphere. The film has a large cult following and is occasionally screened at film and Halloween festivals, and has been cited as a wide-ranging influence on numerous filmmakers, including David Lynch and George A. Romero.

Brainstorm is a 1983 American science fiction film directed by Douglas Trumbull, and starring Christopher Walken, Natalie Wood (in her final film role), Louise Fletcher and Cliff Robertson. It follows a research team's efforts to perfect a system that directly records the sensory and emotional feelings of a subject, and the efforts by the company's management to exploit the device for military ends. To prepare for the film, Trumbull took most of the key cast and crew up to the Esalen Institute, an experimental research facility in Northern California known for its new-age classes and workshops. In September 1981 the cast and crew traveled to North Carolina to begin six weeks of shooting at locations including Research Triangle Park and Duke University. The score to Brainstorm was composed and conducted by James Horner, it won him the Saturn Award for Best Music in 1983. The Varèse Sarabande album/CD release is a re-recording with the London Symphony Orchestra, produced shortly before the original theatrical release. Brainstorm was finally released on September 30, 1983, almost two years after Wood's death. However, it opened on a small number of screens and with little publicity, despite being trumpeted unofficially as "Natalie Wood's last movie". Janet Maslin of the New York Times gave particular credit to Louise Fletcher's "superb performance". The film was conceived as an introduction to Trumbull's Showscan 60 frames-per-second 70mm film process. "In movies people often do flashbacks and point-of-view shots as a gauzy, mysterious, distant kind of image," Trumbull recalled, "And I wanted to do just the opposite, which was to make the material of the mind even more real and high-impact than 'reality'".
Equinox (also known as The Equinox ... A Journey into the Supernatural, and released on home video as The Beast) is a 1970 American independent cult classic horror film directed by Jack Woods and Dennis Muren, and starring Edward Connell, Barbara Hewitt, Frank Bonner and Robin Christopher. The plot focuses on four teenagers having a picnic in the canyons of California who stumble upon an ancient book containing secrets of a strange world that exists alongside humans, and consequently unleash a plethora of evil creatures. Made on a budget of a mere $6,500 in 1967, Equinox initially gained a reputation as a midnight movie during its theatrical run, but has in later years been noted for its economical yet sophisticated use of stop-motion special effects and cel animation, which were provided by Dave Allen and Jim Danforth; the latter later worked on Flesh Gordon, in which he animated a giant monster similar to the ones in Equinox. The film has been influential to the horror and sci-fi monster genres, receiving praise from filmmaker George Lucas and special effects artist Ray Harryhausen; it was also noted as a main inspiration for Sam Raimi's The Evil Dead (1981).
This week we are joined by our good friend Mr. Zev to discuss an unexpected topic: Haitian Voodoo. Voodoo is a syncretic (that means mixed up from various religions) spirituality that is a mixture of native spirituality and religion from various parts of Africa and with Catholocism. It became a unique form of these African beliefs after the slave trade brought African slaves to the Americas. How are these religions related? What do they worship? What are their rituals like? Is it the blackest religion? Find out this and more on tonight's episode of the Ahnenerbe Hour.

Psychomania (a.k.a. The Death Wheelers) is a 1973 British horror-cult film starring Nicky Henson, Beryl Reid, George Sanders (in his final film) and Robert Hardy. Tom Latham, an amiable psychopath and the leader of a violent teen gang, enjoys riding his motorcycle with his girlfriend and loves his mother. His gang dabble in black magic and call themselves "The Living Dead". In a similar vein, his mother and her sinister butler get their kicks out of holding séances in their home. With her help (and following in his father's footsteps) Tom returns from the dead. One by one, he and his fellow bikers commit suicide with the goal of returning as one of the "undead". One of them fails, but the ones who do return gather together at a secret place called "The Seven Witches" (a circle of standing stones), after which they continue to terrorize the locals. Shock Till You Drop called the film "a great one-shot horror movie filled with weird, something eerie atmosphere, crazy stunt work, cheeky performances, mild kink and a unique charm all its own."

The Dunwich Horror is a 1970 American independent supernatural horror film from American International Pictures directed by Daniel Haller and produced by Roger Corman.

Witchcraft has always had a tight hold on humanity. We tell our children cautionary tales about forest dwelling hags, we write books dedicated to hunting these beings, and we have modern religions based around the fundamentals of witchcraft. Though it’s practices and elements have changed between different time periods and cultures, it is a practice that is deeply intertwined throughout our history and evidence of witchcraft can be found in every civilization. In the early-to-mid 1600s, Massachusetts lived in fear of the supernatural. Living in this strict religious society, if one was accused of consorting with the Devil, blood would be shed. It is from this period where we take our material for the week. This week Zev, Tyler and Patrick sit down to talk about the 2016 period film The Witch (stylized as THE VVITCH) and briefly speak about the 1993 film Hocus Pocus. Join us through the witching hour as we discuss the haunting atmospheres, religious elements, and personal anecdotes.” Zev, Patrick, Tyler

Without bleeding the receptacle dry and insuring that no more biscuits are eaten by the junior staff fly boys, we see a significant improvement in the projections for profitability in the second quarter of the first half of nothing. Therefore I beseech you and implore you using the logic of a wounded schoolboy with a minor league tire iron.

It has infested the dictionaries and logic probes of sanitary dental procedures throughout the greater metropolitan flim flam.

Spirits of the Dead (Italian: Tre passi nel delirio, French: Histoires extraordinaires) is an "omnibus" film comprising three segments. The French title Histoires extraordinaires (translated to English as Extraordinary Stories) is from the first collection of Edgar Allan Poe's short stories translated by French poet Charles Baudelaire; the English title Spirits of the Dead is from an 1827 poem by Poe. American International Pictures distributed this horror anthology film featuring three Poe stories directed by European directors Roger Vadim, Louis Malle and Federico Fellini. Jane Fonda, Alain Delon, Peter Fonda, Brigitte Bardot, and Terence Stamp are among the stars. The English-language version features narration by Vincent Price.
The Entity is a 1982 American horror film directed by Sidney J. Furie and written by Frank De Felitta, who adapted his 1978 novel of the same name. It stars Barbara Hershey as a woman who is raped and tormented by an invisible assailant. Despite being filmed and planned for a release in 1981, the movie was not released in worldwide theaters until September 1982 and February 1983 in the United States.

By request....Night of the Demon aka Curse of the Demon is a 1957 British horror film directed by Jacques Tourneur, starring Dana Andrews, Peggy Cummins and Niall MacGinnis. It is adapted from the M. R. James story "Casting the Runes" (1911). The plot revolves around an American psychologist who travels to England to investigate a satanic cult suspected of more than one death. The film's production was turbulent due to artistic differences that arose between producer Hal E. Chester on one side and director Tourneur and writer Charles Bennett on the other. The original plan was not to show the demon on screen, but Chester inserted a special effects monster over the objections of the writer, the director, and lead actor Dana Andrews. To accelerate the pace, the 95 minute British release was trimmed to 83 minutes and retitled Curse of the Demon for the US market, where it played in June 1958 as the second half of a double bill variously with The True Story of Lynn Stuart and The Revenge of Frankenstein (1958).
"The Grave" is episode 72 of the American television anthology series The Twilight Zone. It originally aired on October 27, 1961. "Normally, the old man would be correct. This would be the end of the story. We've had the traditional shoot-out on the street and the badman will soon be dead. But some men of legend and folk tale have been known to continue having their way even after death. The outlaw and killer Pinto Sykes was such a person, and shortly we'll see how he introduces the town and a man named Conny Miller, in particular, to the Twilight Zone."
"The Passersby" is the 69th episode of the American television anthology series The Twilight Zone. At the end of the Civil War, a Confederate Army Sergeant (James Gregory), apparently wounded in battle, walks down a road aided by a wooden crutch. He carries with him a dirty bed roll and a homemade guitar. As the Sergeant limps along he sees a house. Once beautiful, the house and yard show obvious signs of the war; there is debris in the yard, and a large, dead tree stands in front of the house. It had once provided shade for its owners; now it stands there as evidence of the former beauty of the property. This is the house of Lavinia Godwin (Joanne Linville), whose husband had gone off to fight in the war and whose bitterness towards the Union still survives.
"A Game of Pool" is episode 70 of the American television anthology series The Twilight Zone. It originally aired on October 13, 1961, on CBS. According to Rod Serling, it is "the story of the best pool player living and the best pool player dead." It is after hours at Lister's Pool Room in Chicago, and once more pool shark Jesse Cardiff (Jack Klugman) is alone, polishing his game. Jesse bitterly muses that he would be considered the greatest pool player of all time, if it were not for the memory of the late James Howard "Fats" Brown (Jonathan Winters) overshadowing him. He says he would give anything to play one game against Fats....

Note: where the Shadow Man talks about a "molecule" he must be referring to what we call an "atom." Only in Helium and the other Inert gasses are the words "interchangeable," but even then the term "atom" is more accurate. This confusion must be the result of a transmission error of some kind.

This is a shot of the full moon taken in Los Angeles from a bus stop on Hollywood Blvd. The image is then processed using a bunch of simple filters in Microsoft Windows Movie Maker Live.
