This movie starts off pretty fast paced. There is what I'm assuming to be a car race, and well the car with the women goes off the bridge into the water. Shocked, the other car pulls over to look. One of women is coming up out of the water and trying to get back on her feet. Mary (played by Candace Hilligoss) starts to feel a little bit different inside. She moves to another town to be the organist in a church. Here, she comes across an abandoned carnival. Then things start to get strange.
At multiple parts in the film, the world goes deaf around her. She can hear and see things, but no one can hear or see her. And then a bird tweets and things go back to normal. She is being followed by a mysterious man, who no one else can see. And she starts to go a little crazy with it all. Honestly, I found the film confusing. I think I understand the background and plot of it, but still a lot of the little things just don't make sense to me.
<SPOILERS> In the end we find out that Mary had actually died in that car accident. Her soul was still walking around and interacting with people in the real world (which is honestly what I don't understand about the whole thing) but it also was drawn to the carnival with all the other lost souls. Eventually she was taken (at least that's what I think happened) and I assume she will forever be at the carnival. <END SPOILERS>
I felt like there was very little dialogue in this movie, so Hilligoss really used her facial expressions to show the viewer the feel of the moment. The music though, that definitely was able to give the right amount of creeps for the viewer, especially the organ. Can you find something more ominous that what she was playing in the scene? I think not. And the mystery behind it all makes you want to keep watching to see what is going on. I'll give this film a "Liked It'' rating.
