Triple-bill of classic horror films. In 'Carnival of Souls' (1962) Mary Henry (Candace Hilligoss) survives a car accident, only to find herself plagued by visions of a sinister figure and strangely drawn to an old, abandoned carnival. 'The Ape Man' (1943) stars Bela Lugosi as James Brewster, a deranged scientist experimenting on a serum derived from the spinal fluid of gorillas. When the simian serum begins to turn Brewster into an ape-creature, he discovers that the antidote is a similar serum taken from the spinal fluids of human beings, forcing him into committing terrible crimes in an attempt to reverse the effects of his experiment. Finally, in 'Mesa of Lost Women' (1953), deranged scientist Dr Aranya (Jackie Coogan) experiments on captured women in his Mexican laboratory, in a bid to create a race of super-strong spiderwomen with which he can take over the world.

I only bought this DVD because I hadn't seen 'Carnival of Souls' for about 30 years and yet it had seared itself into my conciousness. I was expecting to be disappointed as so much you remember favourably from your youth turns out in later life to be a bit lame when re-viewed, however, this film still makes an impression. It's not scary or gory as modern horror films try to be, but it is just well shot and put together creating atmosphere and a sense of macabre that is missing from today's films. Being filmed in black and white helps the atmosphere rather than hinders it. You kind of know what's going to happen to the organ-playing godless heroine all through the film, but this impending fate just adds to the suspense throughout. Despite being made decades ago, it still somehow has a contemporary air to it and so could have been filmed last year in a retro-style. As for the other two films, I agree with other reviewers that these are for viewing on a wet afternoon only, but given the incredibly cheap price of this DVD, I'd give it 5 stars if it had Carnival of Souls alone on the DVD. Recommend if American 50s/60s weird & ooky stuff is your bag.

Like most of the DVDs in this series, calling it "3 classics" is really stretching the truth to breaking point! This volume, though, does have one genuine horror classic in Carnival of Souls, a wonderfully haunting tale of a woman drawn to a spooky deserted fun fair after a car accident. It's beautifully shot in black and white and is an understated horror delight. It's worth getting for this film alone. As to the other films, well, to be frank, I wouldn't bother unless you're particularly bored. The Apeman has mediocre man in a gorilla suit monkey business and Mesa of Lost Women is one of those so bad it's good sort of films with a particularly annoying soundtrack. It does boast a hilarious giant spider and some fruity narration to enjoy, though.
