The Devil's Carnival: from the creators of Repo: The Genetic Opera

I was just looking around on the net yesterday and I stumbled across this. It's a new movie musical from the same people who did Repo! The Genetic Opera. It also features returning Repo! cast members Terrance Zdunich (who also wrote it) as Lucifer, Paul Sorvino as God, Alexa Vega as Wick, Bill Moseley as The Magician, and Ogre as The Twin. New cast members include Sean Patrick Flanery as John, Jessica Lowndes as Tamara, Emilie Autum as The Painted Doll, and Dayton Callie as The Ticket Keeper.
The description from the official site:
After the triumphant collaboration on 2008's REPO! THE GENETIC OPERA, 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 to dive into the ashes with them on their newest musical movie experience, THE DEVIL'S CARNIVAL.
With their signature tastes for horror flicks and rock 'n' roll, Bousman and Zdunich have fired up an underworld unlike any other in this genre-bending, groundbreaking new film series. In THE DEVIL'S CARNIVAL, sinners are invited to a theme park where they endure the repetition of their transgressions. Lucifer and his colorful cast of singing carnies guide these lost souls through their wild, warped amusement park.
Episode one features twelve original songs, written by Zdunich and Saar Hendelman, performed by a star-studded assembly of actors and musicians, and directed by Bousman. Drawing comparisons from TALES FROM THE CRYPT and GLEE, who can't help but fall for THE DEVIL'S CARNIVAL?
It doesn't mention it in the description, but a lot of scenes and characters are taken from Aesop's Fables.

This comes out on DVD Tuesday.
Repo! is one of my all time favorite movies, so I am really looking forward to this.

I love Repo and that sounds awesome. Why does it say Episode One, is it a trilogy or something?

Re: The Devil's Carnival: from the creators of Repo: The Genetic Opera

I don't know, I just noticed when I posted this that it said series in the description on the site. Just to warn you, it does say on the site that the standard "sinners" edition (which is a DVD and extended Soundtrack CD) is exclusive to Hot Topic, and they have a "Ringmaster Edition" that is exclusive to their website, and will only have 6,660 copies made. It does say it will be available as a digital download though, and it does have a entry on Netflix, but I don't know if the Hot Topic exclusivity would keep them from getting it.
