Director Darren Lynn Bousman and writer/artist/singer Terrance Zdunich are back with their follow-up project to the cult film REPO! THE GENETIC OPERA; this time they’re unleashing something called THE DEVIL’S CARNIVAL. Not quite a feature length film, but also not a short, the first teaser trailer for the project has debuted with the promise of a full trailer on March 16th.
I’ll be damned if the song in the teaser isn’t catchy as hell and already stuck in my head. Joining Zdunich on that tune is Emilie Autumn. And you can expect a whole slew of familiar faces from Bousman’s previous films including Alexa Vega, Briana Evigan, J. LaRose, Paul Sorvino, Ogre and some welcome new additions like Slipknot‘s M. Shawn “clown” Crahan, Boondock Saint Sean Patrick Flanery and THE LOST‘s Marc Senter.
Rumor has it that the plan is to tour THE DEVIL’S CARNIVAL in the same way that a print of REPO! toured the country after it’s brief theatrical run. We actually caught and reviewed the NJ stop of the REPO tour, which you can read all about right HERE.
In the meantime, check out the cool teaser trailer below along with the video description and a few extra promotional poster images!
