Carnival of Souls and The Nest

Summer Horror Month continues with a look at the influential horror classic “Carnival of Souls” plus the surprising new release “The Nest”.


Summer Horror continues with a look at the cult classic Carnival of Souls from 1961 (or possibly 1962). The movie is seen as one of the most innovative horror movies of all time and is responsible for inspiring names like David Lynch and George A. Romero. But not everyone likes it. We also talk about the surprising new horror movie The Nest.


The episode begins with a discussion about Titane from Julia Ducournau (Raw) winning the prestigious Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival. What does this mean for genre films? Are they being given more respect, or will this open the door for lots of poor imitations? We also make another uncanny prediction, this time about Dune.

We then move on to a discussion of our featured film review, The Nest. This is a strange horror movie. The awesome poster and creepy opening make it look like it will be just another scary movie. However, the plot is more of a mystery. The script is all over the place, as were our opinions regarding how effective the film is.

Finally, the month of July is Summer Horror Month here on Adventures in Movies. We kicked things off by diving into the cosmic/body horror film The Beach House (2019). Next, we took a Summer trip back in time to 1986’s Body Count. And last week, we packed our bags and headed off to A Perfect Getaway.

This week, our journey takes us all the way back to the early 1960s to discuss a true horror classic, Carnival of Souls.

We talk about whether the movie would make any waves in today’s world, whether it is a product of luck or true skill, and the origin of the phrase “no means no”.
