The price of Broadway tickets is not the only place that the musical and horror meet. Over the past several years, director Darren Lynn Bousman (Saw II, III, and IV) and writer-actor Terrance Zdunich have collaborated on a pair of films that meld music with the macabre: 2008’s cult movie Repo! The Genetic Opera and 2012’s The Devil’s Carnival.
The duo have now reteamed for the forthcoming Alleluia! The Devil’s Carnival, in which, according to the official synopsis, “Lucifer (Zdunich) incites Heaven’s wrath by dispatching train cars full of condemned souls a-crashin’ through the pearly gates. God (Paul Sorvino), in response, readies his top negotiator, The Agent (Adam Pascal), for a trip down to The Carnival to put an end to the rebellious deeds.”
Alleluia! The Devil’s Carnival also stars David Hasselhoff, Ted Neeley, Barry Bostwick, Emilie Autumn, horror legend Bill Moseley, and rapper Tech N9ne, among others, and features music from composer Saar Hendelman. The film will be screened as part of a rock tour-type road show that kicks off in Los Angeles this August and will continue throughout the fall in both the U.S. and Europe. (Ticket details are available at the film’s official website). You can check out the new trailer for Alleluia! The Devil’s Carnival, above.
