Boring In On Kansas

October 11, 1987

Hollywood once again goes on location to Lawrence, Kan., to bestow its beneficent presence on "the masses" there, i.e. the great unwashed, the local yokels.

But reporter McDougal forgot to include one little item that every true horror fan knows: Lawrence's own home-based film maker, Herk Harvey, made one of the eeriest, scariest movies ever made right there in Kansas: "Carnival of Souls" (1963).

When Hollywood gets around to crafting movies like "Carnival of Souls," which will still be playing to rapt audiences long after the film "Kansas" and Matt Dillon are forgotten, only then will its superior attitude be justified.
