After collaborating 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 to dive into the ashes with them on their newest endeavor, THE DEVIL’S CARNIVAL.
With their signature tastes for horror flicks and rock music, Bousman and Zdunich have fired up an underworld unlike any other in this genre-bending, groundbreaking new series. In THE DEVIL’S CARNIVAL, sinners are invited to a theme park where they endure the repetition of their transgressions. Lucifer and his colorful cast of singing carnies guide these lost souls through their wild, warped amusement park.
The pilot episode features twelve original songs, written by Zdunich and Saar Hendelman, performed by a star-studded assembly of actors and musicians, and directed by Bousman. The cast is comprised of Emilie Autumn, Dayton Callie, The Blessed Contessa, M. Shawn “clown” Crahan, Briana Evigan, Sean Patrick Flanery, Maggie “Captain Maggot” Lally, J. LaRose, Jessica Lowndes, Mighty Mike, Hannah Minx, Ivan L. Moody, Bill Moseley, Ogre, Marc Senter, Paul Sorvino, Alexa Vega and Terrance Zdunich. Drawing comparisons from TALES FROM THE CRYPT and GLEE, who can’t help but fall for THE DEVIL’S CARNIVAL?
