''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 ''Film/NightOfTheLivingDead1968''.

* TsunDere: John sees Mary as this. First she acts cold and doesn't want to see him, then flirts with him when he brings her coffee, before turning down a date and then agreeing soon after. She acts bored on his date before telling him she wants to be with him that night before finally acting disinterested. He's understandably confused
