The Devil’s Carnival Gets Casting

We just caught a bit of the Devil’s Carnival just a couple weeks ago, and while we didn’t have much word about the specific terror hotties involved in the movie, we did know they were there. And now, we actually know who they are.

Featuring Taryn Manning and Briana Evigan, as well as horror legend Bill Moseley, The Devil’s Carnival is a strange sort of long short, a forty five minute venture about, pretty much, exactly what the title says it will be. Specifically, it’s about a carnival run by the devil himself.

It’s directed by Darren Lynn Bousman, and it will feature musical numbers and dancing, just like Repo! The Genetic Opera did. And considering how well that one went over, it’s a fair bet to think that this one won’t exactly prove to be a seat-filler.

There’s no word on just when this one will get released, but we’ll be keeping an eye open for it. So stick around, because we’ll pass on all the latest as we get it to pass!

Briana Evigan Talks Darko Redux

There’s a whole lot of skepticism floating around about the upcoming sequel to Donnie Darko, dubbed, not surprisingly, S. Darko mostly due to the fact that it’ll follow Donnie’s sister Samantha around this time.  But perhaps the biggest shock is that not even the cast is a hundred percent convinced this is a good idea—check out the interview with Briana Evigan, who’ll be playing Corey:

“I actually watched it (Donnie Darko) like a month before I got the offer for S. Darko,” she explains. “It’s kind of random. Donnie Darko was unbelievable. It’s a hard movie to make a sequel to. I can definitely agree with people out there dissing it, I can under stand that. I still hope they do go check it out, because it really is cool.”

Look, when even the cast can understand why people are concerned, and admits that this isn’t going to be the clearest sequel in town, there’s a huge problem right from the word go.  I saw Donnie Darko and actually understood about half of it, so excuse me if I’m not in a huge rush to catch S. Darko.

Daveigh Chase and Briana Evigan: Darko Redux

Daveigh Chase and Briana Evigan will be teaming up to give us a blast of terror hottie from a very unexpected source.  And frankly, given the source, I could stand to never hear from them again.

This’ll kill you, folks—apparently, a sequel to Donnie Darko is in the works, and they’re calling it S. Darko.

It’s plausible that S. Darko will stand for Samantha Darko, which you may remember as being Donnie’s little sister.  S. Darko will take place seven years after the events of the original, and in this one, Samantha is on a road trip heading for Los Angeles, where she’ll be killed by a falling airplane engine—no, I’m just kidding. We can’t possibly be that lucky.  No, this time, Samantha will be plagued by a series of bizarre visions, much like Donnie was last time.

And this is exactly what I needed to hear.  Look, Donnie Darko wasn’t really that scary.  Calling it a horror film is actually sort of an overstatement, as we’re talking about a movie that was only scary in the sense that dreams where you show up for class on a day you’re supposed to take a test and you haven’t studied are scary.  When you finally figure out what happened in Donnie Darko, you inevitably feel let down because you put all that time and effort into figuring out just WHAT THE FUCK HAPPENED, only to discover that it’s really rather stupid.

Thus, no, I’m not looking forward to this one at all, which will start shooting imminently.
