From the minds who brought you 2008’s Repo! The Genetic Opera comes The Devil’s Carnival, a horror musical about a theme park carnival from hell. Making appearances in the film are none other than Shawn “Clown” Crahan from Slipknot and Ivan Moody from Five Finger Death Punch. Crahan plays “The Tamer,” while Moody appears in the film as the “The Hobo Clown.”
Posters of the two musicians in character have appeared on the film’s website (and can be seen above). And last week, The Hollywood Reporter premiered a new teaser trailer for The Devil’s Carnival, which also stars Paul Sorvino, Alexa Vega, Jessica Lowndes, Sean Patrick Flannery and many others. Moody specifically can be seen around the 1:12 mark while Crahan makes a brief appearance around the 1:18 mark. A release date for the musical is still unknown, but the teaser says that a full trailer will be released on March 16.
Like Repo! The Genetic Opera, the plan is to do a full rock tour this April and release an album with the musical’s 13 songs. Whether Crahan and Moody will take part in said tour is at the moment unclear. But here’s one thing we know for sure: that teaser trailer creeps us the hell out. Watch it for yourself after the jump, while you can find out more information via The Devil’s Carnival’s website.http://vimeo.com/36998890
