    Maybe she didn't like her own designs.

    Here's 1986's DARK MANSIONS starring Joan Fontaine, produced by Aaron Spelling, directed by Jerry London, filmed at Greystone-Doheny, and written by FALCON CREST's Robert McCullough, with an excessive score by Ken Harrison (which sounds a lot like COLBYS' and late-DYNASTY's compositions) which McCullough thought had a lot to do with mediocre audience testing results for the pilot:

    Is the original CARNIVAL OF SOULS (1962) a haunted house movie? Well, the entire pavilion seems to be haunted.

    Directed by Herk Harvey, Candace Hilligoss is in a seemingly fatal accident when her car goes off the side of a bridge. Her carmates all drown, but she wanders up onto a sand bar, mysteriously alive. She drives across Kansas and promptly loses her new organist job when she veers from the hymnal in favor of some dancing demon selections more appropriate for a church of satan. Her lecherous boarding housemate wants a piece, but she's not giving it up, despite being chased by a goblin through most of the picture.

    Eventually she winds up back at that pavilion she finds so entrancing (although it's actually in Utah).

    There, a party awaits her, and she's the guest of honor.

    Filmed in that twilight zone of the early-'60s where creepy is effortless, the shoe-string budget only served to enhance the effect... It's the end of the world, bitches..!
