I saw this movie last night as part of "The Devil's Carnival" road show. If you have seen "Repo! The Genetic Opera," then you are already a Terrance/Darren fan. This movie is the first in a series to be made. It deals with 3 people who die and land in Hell. Terrance Zdunich plays a very menacing Lucifer. Using Aesop's Fables, Lucifer associates one of the fables to each of the people, trying to discern whether or not they realize the sin that has brought them there. Lucifer picks specific members of his carnival to help act out the fables for the sinners. This is a <more>
musical and is beautifully done. I was not aware that Brianna Evigan had such a great voice. There are other stars that amazed me with song. I was mesmerized throughout her song. The make-up was well beyond expectation, especially for Lucifer and The Twin, played by Ogre of Skinny puppy. If you wait to see this movie on DVD, you will miss out on half of the enjoyment. The road show pulls you in and makes you very much apart of it all. If this showed in a local theater, I would see it again and again.
I caught a screening of this on Easter Sunday which just brought a terrific sense of irony to the entire day. I am a big fan of Repo! The Genetic Opera and wanted to see if Terrance Zdunich and Darren Lynn Bousman could pull off another fantastic collaboration. I was not disappointed. The Devil's Carnival is such a unique film and it stands out from so much of the Hollywood hum-drudgery in so many ways. Firstly, the music was the very essence of originality and each of the singers/actors brought they're own different musical style to the film. The colors and the costumes and the sets <more>
were so very engaging and bright. Hell, even the extras looked fantastic. And, the whole movie had this amazing duality to it that really sucked me in. The dark and creepy atmosphere was contrasted by the bright colors and festive music. And even though it's a story about a carnival run by the devil, it's got a strange kind of morality to it. Sometimes I didn't know if I wanted to feel disturbed or elated, disgusted or thrilled. I love that in a movie! So, if you've got a taste for the "out of the box" movie experience. And, we're talking way out there, check out The Devil's Carnival.
This is far more than just a film, it is an experience in itself with the current format they're using for viewings.I purchased the soundtrack before seeing the film & fell in love with it only to fall even harder for the songs & characters when I watched the movie.All the dynamics exist in this dark melodious tale based in an Aesop's Fable type storyline. The cast is dark, funny & makes you glance inward when you find yourself rooting for the devil himself.This is a must see for artists as you see each and every one of the characters betray their passion for the project <more>
I don't normally write these things. This film is very fun and the music alone is enough to move your imagination. You have to enjoy everything from the gritty feel of the carnival to the creepy Doll shop of God. It really pulls you in with a sense of wonder. This is one that nobody should miss. It is and will become a pop culture flick that sneaks into the mainstream society. The performances were amazing. You can never go wrong with the chaos formula that Terrance and Darren have sort of mastered. Emilie Autumn has a fun yet elegantly wicked performance. You can really believe the <more>
Ticket-Keeper is a real creature of the pits thanks to the performance of Dayton Callie. Briana Evigan and Sean Patrick Flanery, do astounding job with their characters. Miss this and you will be missing out on great music, story, and a little bit of lesson in morals.
As a newcomer to the work of Terrance Zdunich Writer/actor & Darren Lynn Bousman Director , my only comparison is Repo! The Genetic Opera. I loved that so I went into The Devil's Carnival with blind faith that the money I spent to pre-order the movie would be worth it. I'm glad to say, I feel my money was well spent. The only thing that really bothered me was the length of the movie, perhaps the film should have been prefaced as a short-film. What many people may not have realized is that Terrance designed this is to be the first in a series if hour-long show-type films. Most <more>
of the actors came back from Repo! and do an excellent job of making their characters. The singing is good, although I would have to admit, I do not care for Emilie Autumn's voice, never have. My favorite song is "In All My Dreams I Drown", which is a duet by Tamara Jessica Lowndes and Lucifer Terrance himself . The depressing part is that this song was cut from the actual film : but, it is included on DVD & Blu-Ray and the soundtrack. A lot of the scenes are kind of jumpy and the flow isn't quite right but for a movie made in 7days for $100,000 I think the cons of the movie are minimal in comparison. All in all, I enjoyed the movie and am very much looking forward to the next episode. Hopefully, many of the questions brought up by this first installment will be answered in the next. I'm confident that each future episode will improve based on these reviews and all the audience feedback. An ancillary note, if you have questions from the film, send them Terrance's way, he's easily accessible. If enough people have the same questions, he will try to address the issues for the next film :
Grace for Sale - Devil's Carnival (by dragonrider2300)
The Devil's Carnival is the newest production from the co-creator of Repo! The Genetic Opera, Terrance Zdunich, and Darren Bousman, who has directed many films Saw films, Repo! The Genetic Opera, etc. . Three lost souls find their way to the Devil's Carnival, and meet a cast of characters who all manage to exude a grotesque charm as they sing songs ranging from soulful 'Grief' by Sean Patrick Flannery to jaunty and dark 'Grace for Sale' by Terrance Zdunich . Ivan Moody appears as Hobo Clown and sings 'Penny for a Tale'-you may not be inviting this clown to <more>
your kid's birthday party. Cinematically engaging with moving cameras and angled close-ups, the contrast between darkness and the bright colors of the carnival allegorically illustrate aspects of the movie's plot. Devil's Carnival draws the viewer into the moral struggles faced by the main characters. Why are they there? Where will they end up? What is Lucifer going to do at the Devil's Carnival? A stellar addition to the emerging genre of Goth opera movies. A 'must see' - unfortunately only available in theaters right now through the 'Road Tour'.
You will either like this movie or hate it - there is no in between. If a blend of Rocky Horror and the Twilight Zone sounds intriguing, then I urge you to give The Devil's Carnival a try. The story follows 3 of Aesop's Fables with 3 recently deceased individuals going to hell. Personally, the location feels more like purgatory - where persons are given an opportunity to relive past mistakes but make better decisions. The music, costumes and makeup were perfect for the movie - not state of the art, but definitely above B horror flick. Except for Sean Patrick Flanery and Paul Sorvino, <more>
I didn't recognize any of the cast although I know that Alexa Vega had a role . I actually like independent movies since they aren't polished and perfected. Find a trailer and watch before viewing the entire movie. If the trailer sucks to you, keep on moving. But if you like weird things like I do, give it a try. You'll be glad you did.
It's hard to remind myself that this is indeed a work in progress and that it's currently a short. I feel like there needs to be more. Yes, I'm well aware that there is more to come.I will agree with the major complaint that I've found about it. There is so tragically little character development that it's kind of hard to care what happens to these people. I don't require much, just a little something, this would be an appropriate time to insert the amazing Mr. Zdunich's incomparable artwork as had been done in RTGO to illustrate what wasn't filmed. The carnies <more>
are a blast though, I'd much prefer things to be centered around them rather than the victims.And that sums up the "cons" for me. Well aside from the ridiculous length I had to travel because they didn't come to MN ahem for future reference lol .The music, while for me not quite up to the expectations I formed years ago while falling in love with RTGO, is still very fun. It's a shame they cut the best song out of the film and stuffed it away in the end credits, but at least it exists, it's placement isn't worth complaining about necessarily, merely worth noting. Watch the credits!Despite the lack of character development, the story is very fun, another wonderful original in a world where all the most clever minds in Hollywood can only come up with remakes and sequels. It makes me wonder what these people could do if they had the budget that a typical movie has. Maybe the world isn't ready for that awesomeness yet.The environment is stunning and deep, at times chaotic but not in an unappealing way. The only way to accurately describe it is "something of a carnival atmosphere, but a malicious one, like in hell" so I guess the title is appropriate haha!All in all, the film certainly doesn't disappoint. It's a shame that the tour is over, but this inevitably means that the DVD will be released soon, make sure you give it a try!
Gave 8/10 stars. It was dark and entertaining. I saw it on the tour. Two songs stood out and I favor those. The rest were OK. For a short low budget film it's good. I was hoping for a little more depth and emotion in the characters. I just couldn't get a connection. Emilie Autumn sang in it but her character was dull. My favorite was the devil. I recommend seeing it on tour to dress up and with like-minded people. It's more an experience kind of film than rent on DVD at home. Hope to see more of this series and hope it goes into more detail with the characters. Over all a fun film <more>
with catchy songs: Being a fan of Repo! and other strange flicks like Army of Darkness and Rocky Horror this was right up my alley. Not for everyone but something refreshing and different.
