SPECIAL EVENT! Hosted by Darren Lynn Bousman, Terrance Zdunich! Featuring sideshow performances, a costume contest (dress up!), secret projections and other surprises!

"Itʼs the William S. Burroughs story Uncle Bill never wrote, told with all the elegant fanciful style and care for the human condition as a Neil Gaiman tale. And it is far and away the single best thing Darren Lynn Bousman has ever made.” – Ainʼt It Cool News

After the triumphant collaboration on 2008’s REPO! THE GENETIC OPERA (which had its World Premiere at Fantasia that year), 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 groundbreaking, new musical film fusion event, THE DEVIL’S CARNIVAL.

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!

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 Maggots” Lally and The Blessed Contessa (of The Bloody Crumpets), J LaRose (Insidious), Jessica Lowndes (90210), Mighty Mike Murga (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 Zdunich.

And now, roaring on a cinema-smashing North American tour, THE DEVIL'S CARNIVAL is pulling into Montreal for a special Sunday night midnight event at Fantasia. There will be sideshow performers, a costume contest (dress up, dress down, dress crazy!) and all kinds of additional live and projected surprises. Your ringleaders for the evening will be Darren Lynn Bousman and Terrance Zdunich, live in the creeping flesh, and they will be bringing friends. It's all going down Sunday July 22 at 12:10 AM (24:10) at the Hall.

NOTE: For this special event, tickets will not be available at the Fantasia box office or through our usual networks, they will only be available through THE DEVIL'S CARNIVAL's Eventbrite interface.
