Another in the Nathan Reynold’s No Return Midnight Movie Madness series of cult favorites. And, once again, MIDNIGHT MOVIE is a GENRE, not a start time.

A drag race turns to tragedy when one car, with three young women inside, topples over a bridge and into the muddy river below. The authorities drag the river, but the search is fruitless and the girls are presumed dead until a single survivor stumbles out of the water with no recollection of how she escaped.

Mary Henry (Candace Hilligoss) decides to forget her strange experience and carry on with her plan to move to Utah to accept a job as a church organist. She rejects the notion that because her profession leads her to work in the church, she is obligated to worship as part of the congregation, and this cold approach to her work unnerves many around her. While driving to the new city, she experiences weird visions of a ghoulish man who stares at her through the windshield, and passes an abandonded carnival on a desolate stretch of highway outside of town to which she feels strangely drawn.

Mary tries to live her life in private, ignoring invitations to worship by the minister of her church and the leering propositions of a neighbor in her rooming house. Soon the ghostly apparition from the highway is appearing more often, and she experiences eerie spells in which she becomes invisible to people on the street. A doctor tries to help, but he too is rejected, and eventually Mary realizes that the deserted carnival holds the secret to her destiny. ~ Fred Beldin, Rovi

    I too have visions of ghoulish men and I would love to see how Mary handles it!

    I saw a ghoulish man through the windshield, it was Ron Tonkin. I stopped to investigate what looked like a carnival and it cost me $18000.

    I would love to escort my own personal vision of a ghoulish man (the seldom seen in public sweetheart) to this showing so that I do not in fact become an invisible person on the street (and everywhere else).
    Thanks again to Clinton St. Theatre for finding rad flicks to screen.

    This was filmed partly in Lawrence Kansas where my friend and his buddy’s are from. They have not seen it as of yet and would be a great opportunity. So much better on the big screen. Clinton Rox!
