Independent films usually don't have any kind of "polished" feel to them, especially an ultra-low-budget one like this, but that's its strength--it has a more isolated, personal, eerie feel to it, without expensive special effects (even the sort that existed back then) & just the creepiest, lone organ music, Candace Hilligoss's unearthly performance & her character's blinking in -&-out-again of this world makes for an effectively unsettling horror film that's entirely deserving of a special release, a la Criterion; & it's supposed to be dream-like.

While on her way to take a job as a church organist in Salt Lake City, Mary Henry (Candace Hilligoss) is haunted by a bizarre apparition. It compels her to an abandoned lakeside pavilion, beginning an eerie and macabre chain of events. Herk Harvey's macabre masterpiece, while made on a modest budget, has gained a cult following on late-night television.
