There’s something ever so fun and enticing about a horror film that’s a musical – the world could definitely do with more of those. Fortunately for us Darren Lynn Bousman, the manic mind behind Repo! The Genetic Opera and The Devil’s Carnival: Episode One, has unleashed a trailer for his latest film Alleluia! The Devil’s Carnival.
Bousman also released some more information including casting news and you’ll all be more than excited to hear that David Hasslehoff will be starring. Also starring is Barry Bostwick (The Rocky Horror Picture Show), Chantel Claret (Morningwood), Dayton Callie (Sons of Anarchy), Briana Evigan (Step Up), Brea Grant (Heroes), Kristina Klebe (Rob Zombie’s Halloween), J Larose (Insidious), Mighty Mike Murga (Mini Kiss), Bill Moseley (The Devil’s Rejects), Ted Neeley (Jesus Christ Superstar), Adam Pascal (Rent), Tech N9ne, Nivek Ogre (Skinny Puppy), Marc Senter (The Lost), Lyndon Smith (Parenthood), Paul Sorvino (Goodfellas), Jimmy Urine (Mindless Self Indulgence), Danny Worsnop (Asking Alexandria), Terrance Zdunich (Repo! The Genetic Opera), Emilie Autumn and the Butcher Babies.
Bousman and writer Terrance Zdunich have been praised as cult filmmakers for their inventive musical horror films. Alleluia! The Devil’s Carnival follows the story Lucifer as he tries to destroy Heaven, which only ends in a bloodbath for both.
