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 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.

One of a kind experienceReviewed byaqos-1Vote: 10/10
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 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!
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 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.
