Carnival of Laughs

""Carnival of Souls" is one of my favorite low-budget "cult classics"...so much so, I even own the Criterion edition. So I couldn't pass up the chance to get Mike, Kevin, and Bill's take on it.
The movie itself actually looks pretty good in this transfer and can be watched without the commentary. Add the commentary, of course, for the laughs. Things start out slow and I'm not terribly impressed, but the jokes get better as they go along, particularly Kevin's running "Password" gag in the department store scene.
If you're a fan of Carnival of Souls as well as a fan of MST3K, this one's a must have."
78 minutes of bad pipe organ music! Yay!

"Okay, so it's not playing throughout the FULL 78 minutes, but there is just enough organ music in the film to make you want to head down to your local church and chainsaw their organ and drag the organist out into the street and beat them with a stick. This is one of the better RiffTrax DVDs that I've come across. Good gags and less dead space (no pun intended) than some of the other RiffTrax out there."
