Carnival of Souls (1998)

An American horror directed by Adam Grossman.
A girl witnessed the murder of her mother and as an adult, has flashbacks and hallucinations about her traumatic past.
Yet another B horror from Wes Craven's filmography list with minimal involvement on his part. Here he is credited as executive producer and has his name in the title (omitted here). This is supposedly a remake of the 1962 film of the same name. The '62 version featured hippy subculture references and some decent organ music. I guess we can count the video effects, costumes and sets in this one as equal to that. Otherwise, the 2 versions are more similar than anyone would expect. Both are B films and neither one is worth watching. There was some usage of slow motion and a few good camera shots, but otherwise this was worthless. I'm rating it poor just like I did for it's previous incarnation.
