Carnival of Souls
(1962)

Starring: Candace Hilligoss, Frances Feist, Sydney Berger
DIR: Herk Harvey

Blurb: After a traumatic accident, a woman becomes drawn to a mysterious abandoned carnival after experiencing a strange series of events post-accident.

The guys are challenging our young women to a drag race, which our car driver accepts with a laugh. The passengers aren't too sure this is a good idea, but not one really protests the "all in good fun" street race.
