So you thought Darren Lynn Bousman’s The Devil’s Carnival was a one and done experience? Think again. We’ve landed the official poster for his 55-minute short film experience hitting the road April 5 as a 30-city rock tour turning venues into environments that tie to the movie and that will encourage audience participation. The one-sheet declares the experience “Episode One,” implying there will be more to follow.
Terrance Zdunich, who co-wrote Repo, also wrote the music for Carnival with Saar Hendelman. Zdunich stars alongside Bill Moseley, Briana Evigan, Emilie Autumn, J. Larose, Alexa Vega, Ogre, Paul Sorvino, Marc Senter, Sean Patrick Flanery and Slipknot’s The Clown.
In the film, “sinners are invited to a theme park where they endure the repetition of their transgressions. What chances do a conniving kleptomaniac, a gullible teenager, and an obsessed father stand when facing their own moral failings? Lucifer and his colorful cast of singing carnies invite you to grab a ticket to The Devil’s Carnival to find out!”
There will also be a 13-song album arriving soon.
Head inside for the poster along with detailed info on the film’s upcoming roadshow! Get your tickets here now! STEP RIGHT UP AND GET YOUR TICKETS… After the triumphant collaboration on 2008’s REPO! THE GENETIC OPERA, a film hailed by The Hollywood Reporter as “the next Rocky Horror Picture Show”, director Darren Lynn Bousman and writer/actor Terrance Zdunich had no where to go but down—ALL THE WAY DOWN… TO HELL. These showbiz black sheep invite you dive into the ashes with them on their newest groundbreaking film fusion event , THE DEVIL’S CARNIVAL, an exclusive nationwide road tour featuring burlesque, special personality meet & greets, a Q&A forum, a whole lot of bad behavior, sing-a-longs, costume contests and more. On screen crowds will get to enjoy never-before-seen REPO! THE GENETIC OPERA behind the scenes footage and bonus features, and most notably, an exclusive viewing of THE DEVIL’S CARNIVAL. Keep in mind, THE DEVIL’S CARNIVAL can only be seen on this exclusive tour, so you must attend a showing to witness the madness!
The past four years have proven that REPO! THE GENETIC OPERA is more than a film—it’s a cinematic experience, one that has grown an army of rabid fans. The REPO! Army has continuously nurtured the film, giving REPO! its righteous place in cult cinema history and finding homes for shadow-casts and late night showings in art house theatres world-wide. These events, along with Bousman and Zdunich’s undying need to reach back into the macabre, have spawned their new horror-rock hybrid THE DEVIL’S CARNIVAL. With their signature flare for merging the worlds of horror and rock music, Bousman and Zdunich join forces again to fire up an underworld unlike any other in this genre-bending, groundbreaking new cinema road tour.
THE DEVIL’S CARNIVAL features twelve original songs, written by Zdunich and Saar Hendelman, directed by Bousman, produced by Sean E Demott and Joseph Bishara (Insidious), and stars Victoriandustrial rocker Emilie Autumn, Dayton Callie (Sons Of Anarchy, Deadwood), M. Shawn “Clown” Crahan (of the Grammy award winning, cult metal giants Slipknot), Briana Evigan (Step Up 2), Sean Patrick Flanery (The Boondock Saints), Maggie “Captain Maggot” Lally and The Blessed Contessa (of The Bloody Crumpets), J. LaRose (Insidious), Jessica Lowndes (90210), Mighty Mike (of Mini Kiss), internet star Hannah Minx, Ivan Moody (of the chart-topping heavy metal band Five Finger Death Punch), Bill Moseley (The Devil’s Rejects), Ogre (of the legendary industrial band Skinny Puppy), Marc Senter (The Lost), Paul Sorvino (Goodfellas), Alexa Vega (Spy Kids), and Terrance Zdunich.
In THE DEVIL’S CARNIVAL, sinners are invited to a theme park where they endure the repetition of their transgressions. What chances do a conniving kleptomaniac, a gullible teenager, and an obsessed father stand when facing their own moral failings? Lucifer and his colorful cast of singing carnies invite you to grab a ticket to THE DEVIL’S CARNIVAL to find out!
