Repo: The Genetic Opera director Darren Lynn Bousman is bringing his next horiffically twisted musical, The Devil's Carnival, to Comic-Con 2012. He will be holding one screening of the film in San Diego at 11:59PM on July 13th at the Gaslamp Theatre located at 701 5th Avenue. This event will kick-off a new 22-city tour.
The carnival-atmosphere show includes the hour-long Carnival film, a burlesque live performance, a costume contest, and never before seen footage of Repo! Bousman and Terrance Zdunich will also be there for a Q & A along with some of the films cast members that include Alexa Vega, Emilie Autum, and Marc Senter.
Here's the synopsis:
With their signature tastes for horror flicks and rock music, Bousman and Zdunich have fired up an underworld unlike any other in this genre-bending, groundbreaking new series. In THE DEVIL'S CARNIVAL, sinners are invited to a theme park where they endure the repetition of their transgressions. Lucifer and his colorful cast of singing carnies guide these lost souls through their wild, warped amusement park.
