  • Nick Schwab's rating of the film Carnival of Souls

    It doesn't pass Screenwriting 101, taking its first turning point and not running with it and upping the stakes, rather repeating it over and over... until the hour mark. Of course that makes it dull and boring, and its melodramatic character-building scenes (and soap-opera acting) doesn't help matters. Normally deviating from the original film would be noble, but sadly this film needed to be even more generic.
