>> Best Wicked Carnival - Carnival of Souls/Funland/The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari<<
The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari - Dr. Caligari (Werner Krauss) exhibits a somnambulist that can predict the future, Cesare (Conrad Veidt), at a local fair. During his hypnotism Caligari compels Cesare to carry out fiendish murders. This silent film features elaborately stylized sets, surrealistic acting, and eerily subjective camera work and became a groundbreaker for the genre of horror films and psycho-dramas.
Carnival of Souls - Mary Henry (Candace Hilligoss) crashes her car off of a bridge, drowning everyone in the car. Some time later, however, Mary emerges from the river. After she recovers she accepts a job in a small Utah community. Life seems to be returning to normal, until a mysterious man seems to be following her wherever she goes. She follows him to a carnival whose patrons seem to be between living and dead, and realizes it may hold the secret to her ultimate destiny.
Funland - Funland Amusement Park, a low-key family operation, is taken over by the DeMaro family, who forcibly buy the owner’s shares after bumping him off. The DeMaros only care about the profit margin of the park and begin to cut costs and remodel the rides to a less family oriented format. Neil "Bruce Burger" Stickney (David Lander), the park’s crack accountant who became a clown after a nervous breakdown, plots revenge when he is visited by the dead former owner of the park.
