A nine-minute teaser (courtesy of the fine folk over at Vice) entitled The Devil’s Carnival 2: The Librarian, has been released. Meant as a hint of what’s to come, the teaser is “…chock-full of visual and musical hints of the heavenly delight that awaits audiences in The Devil’s Carnival: Episode 2“.
The teaser shows horror rapper Tech N9ne as the librarian of a twisted, nightmarish library, one that is full of magic and sounds. However, N9ne isn’t exactly a fan of noises that he isn’t in control of. So let’s just say that things would’ve gone better had someone bitten their tongue. Check out the trailer below.
2013 will see a new roadshow by Saw II-IV, 11-11-11, Mother’s Day and The Barrens director Darren Lynn Bousman, who returns to direct another chapter in the battle between Heaven and Hell. Creator Terrance Zdunich (Repo! The Genetic Opera) also returns. READ MORE
This past thursday The Devil’s Carnival had its world premiere at the Laemmle Royal Theater in Santa Monica. Before the show a line of gothic carnie cosplayers snaked around the block from the building’s entrance – no doubt fans of Darren Lynn Bousman and his previous cult hit, Repo: The Genetic Opera.
The Devil’s Carnival wasn’t only premiering at the event, it was embarking on a 40 plus date road show that will see it – and members of its cast and crew – traveling the countryside and taking their circus to as many theaters as possible. Whatever you may think of Repo or this film, at least they provide experiences that are impossible to download.
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!”
Head inside for a rundown of the event and some words from Bousman, Zdunich and the cast. READ MORE

We have done our fair share of coverage for “REPO” creator Terrance Zdunich’s Indy horror comic effort, “THE MOLTING”, which is in and of itself a fantastic treat for genre fans, but now the Grave-Robber himself has yet another treat to dish up to his fans. Now fully underway, the artist is letting fans and artists alike into his world and giving free online lessons and tutorials as part of a series he is calling “PAINTING A STILL LIFE WITH TERRANCE ZDUNICH”. Read on for the skinny.
Terrance Zdunich (“THE MOLTING”, “REPO THE GENETIC OPERA”) may be best known to fans for his portrayal of the Grave Robber in the instant cult classic “REPO THE GENETIC OPERA” of which he helped to create. The man can do it all, from singing, to acting, to writing and illustrating his original comic title “THE MOLTING”, Zdunich is a rare talent the likes of which you seldom see these days. Recently we had the extreme privilege sitting down with Terrance about his Indy comic book title as well as “REPO”, cockroaches, little girls with red pigtails and a psychotic streak, and yes, even ‘the other REPO’. The full interview after the jump.
There are so many great indy comics going on right now that it is hard to keep up. Sadly the fact of the matter is that most of these stories would die before they even took their first breaths because of the sheer numbers that they must overcome in order to get noticed by the general public. One such title is ‘REPO THE GENETIC OPERA’ co-writer Terrance Zdunich’s gothic look at the life of everyday Americans called “THE MOLTING”. Zdunich is a truly gifted artist and it shows in every panel of his creative brainchild that is available only through his website. The fledgling series is ready to release its 3rd issue and Bloody-Disgusting has a first look courtesy of Terrrance and the gang. Read on for the preview of one of the titles that horror fans should not miss out on! The Molting is the portrait of an American family in the early 90s set against a decaying urban backdrop in Anaheim CA, the so called ‘Happiest Place on Earth’, the story traverses human history-from upper Paleolithic hunting parties to Southern Gothic grotesqueries-to explore the families roots, secrets, and unconventional family bonds.”
