Director Darren Lynn Bousman and author and performer Terrance Zdunich bring their groundbreaking musical film fusion event ‘The Devil’s Carnival’ to Comic-Con after-hours following 40 incredibly successful multi-city shows. ‘The Devil’s Carnival’ kicks off its second tour at the popular fan convention with a one-night only screening, beginning at 11:59 PM on July 13th at the Gaslamp Theatre located at 701 5th Avenue.
‘The Devil’s Carnival’ show at Comic-Con will feature a live slideshow performance, a costume contest, never before seen footage of ‘REPO! The Genetic Opera’, and a Q&A with Darren Lynn Bousman and Terrance Zdunich. Attending cast will include: Alexa Vega, Emilie Autumn, and Marc Senter.
The circus slideshow-type performances in ‘The Devil’s Carnival’ feature twelve original songs written by Terrance Zdunich and composer Saar Hendelman. Seamlessly fusing character and story with song, the first week the ‘The Devil’s Carnival’ soundtrack was made available online it was the #4 most downloaded album on iTunes. To note, Hunger Games was at #3. A sample of each track can be found at the following link: http://thedevilscarnival.com/music.html
“I wanted to create a project that makes going to the movie theatre a more interactive, fun event where audience members aren’t afraid of keeping quiet and can sing along and shout out at the characters on screen,” explains Bousman.
‘The Devil’s Carnival’ originated as a self-funded passion project with a cast and crew of 16 until, in true carnie-style, it organically grew to encompass a team of over 100. Kicking off a second multi-city road tour, each show has its own carnival-like atmosphere opening with live entertainment, the music video and making-of Repo! The Genetic Opera documentary, followed by the on-screen premiere of ‘The Devil’s Carnival’, and ending with a Q&A with cast and crew.
‘The Devil’s Carnival’ cast includes Jessica Lowndes (90210), Paul Sorvino (Goodfellas), Dayton Callie (Sons Of Anarchy, Deadwood), Sean Patrick Flanery (The Boondock Saints), Marc Senter (The Lost), M. Shawn “Clown” Crahan (of Grammy award winning band Slipknot), J LaRose (Insidious), Ivan Moody (Five Finger Death Punch), Victoriandustrial rocker Emilie Autumn, Bill Moseley (The Devil’s Rejects), Ogre (of the legendary industrial band Skinny Puppy), Alexa Vega (Spy Kids), and Briana Evigan (Step Up 2).
