Along with a handful of other films, it also has the distinction of being riffed ''twice'' by [[MysteryScienceTheater3000 Mike Nelson]]: First on the colorized [=DVD=] released by Legend Films, the second time with help from Kevin Murphy and Bill Corbett on Podcast/RiffTrax.

* ExecutiveMeddling: The distributor cut 5 minutes from the original print to fit advertising - then [[CorruptCorporateExecutive ran off with the profits from the film]].



* OneHitWonder: Herk Harvey's industrial short production company made only one narrative film, this one, and never did one again.



* VindicatedByCable: Joe Bob Briggs and other B-movie aficionados. The documentary ''Schlock!'' notes that had ''Carnival of Souls'' been a foreign film, it would have been hailed as a TrueArtIsAngsty masterpiece.

''Carnival of Souls'' was a low-budget "B" film ($33,000 in 1962) that did mediocre business on release, but has become enough of a CultClassic to merit a [=DVD=] release by Creator/TheCriterionCollection. In fact, some people consider it to be the best "B" movie ever made. George Romero stated that ''Carnival of Souls'' was the inspiration for ''NightOfTheLivingDead''.
