Comic-Con 2012: 'Repo!' Director Bringing 'Devil's Carnival' to Comic-Con
Darren Bousman’s horror musical The Devil's Carnival is heading to San Diego for Comic-Con.
Bousman, who directed Repo! The Genetic Opera as well as a trio of Saw films, and his collaborator Terrance Zdunich are bringing the musical and multimedia event to the oceanside city for the Comic-Con crowd for a one-night-only screening at 11:59 p.m. July 13 at the Gaslamp Theatre, at 701 5th Ave.
The event also will serve as a kickoff for a new 22-city tour.
While the show is not part of the official Comic-Con programming, it lines up perfectly with the type of fan that made Carnival’s first tour a hit and turned Repo! from a box-office flop to a cult hit on the midnight circuit.
The carnival-atmosphere show combines the hourlong Carnival film with burlesque and live performances, a costume contest, unseen footage from Repo! and a Q&A with Bousman and Zdunich.
Devil's Carnival castmembers also make appearances; the San Diego show will include Alexa Vega, Emilie Autumn and Marc Senter.
