1_ What is Your Favorite Horror Film or Which Horror Film Has Stood Out Most in Your Memory. Why?
Very tough. Well, THIS week I'd have to say the original Carnival of Souls. I am very impressed that it was so well made given the incredibly low budget. It also fascinates me that an industrial film maker made the film too. The film has a very eerie atmosphere which really pulls me in.
