Carnival Of Souls (1962)
"Carnival of Souls" is a 1962 independent horror film starring Candace Hilligoss. Produced and directed by Herk Harvey for an estimated $33,000, the film did not gain widespread attention when originally released, as a B film; today, however, it is a cult classic. Set to an organ score by Gene Moore, Carnival of Souls relies more on atmosphere than on special effects to create a mood of unease and foreboding. The film has a large cult following and is occasionally screened at film and Halloween festivals. It has been cited as an important influence on the films of both David Lynch and George A. Romero. Harvey was a director and producer of industrial and educational films based in Lawrence, Kansas, where he worked for the Centron Corporation. While vacationing in Salt Lake City, he developed the idea for the film after driving past the abandoned Saltair Pavilion. Hiring an unknown actress, Lee Strasberg-trained Candace Hilligoss, and otherwise employing mostly local talent, he shot Carnival of Souls in three weeks on location in Lawrence and Salt Lake City. Mary Henry (Candace Hilligoss) is riding in a car with two other young women when some men challenge them to a drag race. As they speed across a bridge, the women's car plunges over the side into the river. The police spend three hours dragging the murky, fast-running water without success. Then Mary miraculously surfaces. She cannot remember how she survived. Mary then drives to Utah, where she has been hired as a church organist. Odd things happen along the way. At one point, she can get nothing on her car radio but strange organ music. She passes a large, abandoned pavilion sitting all by itself on the shores of the Great Salt Lake. It seems to beckon to her in the twilight. Shortly thereafter, while speeding along a deserted stretch of road, a ghoulish, pasty-faced figure (The Man, played by director Herk Harvey) replaces her reflection in the passenger window and stares at her. When The Man suddenly appears in front of her, she swerves off the road. She manages to get back on the road. At a gas station, the attendant tells her the pavilion was first a bathhouse, then a dance hall, and finally a carnival before shutting down. In town, Mary rents a room from Mrs. Thomas; John Linden, the only other lodger, wants to become better acquainted with the blonde newcomer, but she is not interested. That night, she becomes upset when she sees The Man downstairs in the large house and retreats to her room. Mrs. Thomas, who kindly brings her some food, says she did not pass anyone. Soon, Mary begins experiencing terrifying interludes when she becomes invisible and inaudible to the rest of the world, as if she simply is not there. When The Man appears briefly in front of her in a park, she flees, right into the arms of Dr. Samuels. Samuels, though he acknowledges he is not a psychiatrist, tries to help her. Her new employer, the minister (Art Ellison), is a bit put off when she declines his suggestion of a reception to meet the congregation. When she practices for the first time, she finds herself shifting from a hymn to eerie music. In a trance, she sees The Man and others of his ilk dancing. The minister, hearing the strange music, denounces it as "profane" and insists upon her resignation. Terrified of being alone, Mary agrees to go out on a date with Linden. When they return home, he talks his way into her room, but when she sees The Man in the mirror, she becomes upset and tries to tell him what has been happening to her. He leaves, believing she is losing her mind. After talking with Samuels again, Mary believes she has to go to the pavilion. There, however, she finds no answers. Other ghouls join The Man. Mary tries frantically to escape, at one point boarding a bus to leave town, only to find that all the passengers are ghouls. Then she wakes up, showing that she dreamed this sequence at least. In the end, she is drawn back to the pavilion, where she finds her tormenters dancing. A pale version of herself is paired with The Man. When she runs away, they chase her out onto the beach. She collapses, and they close in. The minister, the doctor, and the police investigate afterward, but are baffled. Her bare footprints in the sand (the only ones) end abruptly, but there is no trace of her. In the final scene, the car is finally located and pulled from the river. Mary's body is in the front seat. --- Directed and produced by Herk Harvey, written by Herk Harvey and John Clifford, starring Candace Hilligoss, Frances Feist, Sidney Berger and Art Ellison. --- Source: "Terror by Night" Wikipedia, The Free Encyclopedia.

Gillette Files Lawsuit Against Dollar Shave Club
So if you haven’t heard the news, Gillette is suing the Dollar Shave club over Patent infringement. Before going into the story too much let’s take a look at each company. Gillette is based in Massachusetts and is owned by corporate conglomerate Proctor & Gamble. They are known for their line of Mach razors for men and Venus razors for women. The Dollar Shave Club is a California based company that runs a subscription-based razor delivery service. The shaving industry has recently taken off with facial hair grooming becoming more popular each year. The online market for men’s shaving products is worth an estimated $260 million annually according to the Wall Street Journal. That’s 8% of the total 3 billion dollar shaving industry. It’s believed that Gillette owns 60% of the total shaving market, and that the Dollar Shave Club owns about 20% of the online market. The lawsuit filed is a civil suit claiming that the razors sent out by The Dollar Shave Club use a protective blade coating method that Gillette owns the patent to. The strange thing is that the Dollar Shave Club doesn’t manufacture these razors; they are just a reseller. They actually buy the razors from Dorco which is not mentioned in the lawsuit. The lawsuit is requesting that the Dollar Shave Club stop sending out the razors and also seeks monetary compensation. Now, if you’ve never bought a razor then you might not realize that Gillette is one of the most expensive options you can choose long-term. The razors aren’t terribly expensive but blade replacements can be up to $5 per blade. The Dorco blades shipped out by the Dollar Shave Club can be purchased by individuals and are much cheaper than Gillette brand razors. Straight razors have also become a trend among male shaving enthusiasts, however the cheapest option is still a plain safety razor.
