THE DEVIL’S CARNIVAL Tour Dates Announced!

Last week, we got THIS intriguing teaser trailer for THE DEVIL’S CARNIVAL, an interactive long-form short film from REPO! THE GENETIC OPERA’s Darren Lynn Bousman and Terrance Zdunich. Now, the first batch of tour dates for how you can see it have been announced! When I say “interactive”, what I meant was that the filmmakers and artists behind THE DEVIL’S CARNIVAL are taking a very unique approach to how they’re debuting the movie. It’ll be exclusive unveiled at one of the below listed events where you’ll also have the opportunity to see some cool never-before-seen REPO footage, meet with some of the cast and just take part in the crazy shenanigans the “carnival” has to offer. Here’s a little trailer for the tour and the full details below!

– 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!

1. SINNERS – $20.00 (gets you a ticket to the show)
2. CARNIES – $30.00 (ticket to the show, and a pre-signed poster)
