Aesop's Fables are played out in the lives of lost souls... in Hell!
An obsessed father (Sean Patrick Flanery), a kleptomaniac (Briana Evigan), and a gullible teenager (Jessica Lowndes) are cast from Heaven by God (Paul Sorvino). They find themselves wandering the frightening, unsympathetic midway of “The Devil's Carnival”. Unbeknownst to these condemned attendees, their lives—and the sins that paved their paths to Hell—have become tethered to specific fables in a book read by Lucifer (Terrance Zdunich).
After the triumphant collaboration on 2008's REPO! THE GENETIC OPERA, director Darren Lynn Bousman and writer/actor Terrance Zdunich had nowhere 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.
