Experience The Devil's Carnival - Page 3
What’s great about this is that I control my own fate. We booked the theaters. We booked the hotels. We bought and printed and sell the merchandise. We did everything. There’s no one out side of us who’s doing anything and that’s awesome.
So if it fails it’s because of us. If it fails it’s because we did not do our jobs correctly and I’ll have no one to point the finger at. I can’t blame the big, bad studio or anyone else. It’s our fault. By that same token, if it succeeds it’s also because of us. It’s because of our passion and our drive.
It’s a scary position to be in but i love it.
gJg: It’s total control.
gJg: You’ve also brought back a lot of people from “Repo! The Genetic Opera” for this film as well.
DB: We did. We brought back Paul Sorvino, Bill Moseley, Alexa Vega, Ogre from Skinny Puppy. Oh, and my favorite by far is J LaRose who plays “Major” – he’s in the car with me right now and just reminded me that he was in “Repo!” too.<laughs>
What’s cool is that I find people who I like to work with. We’re like a family. A very dysfunctional family, but a family none-the-less.
gJg: “Mother’s Day” with Rebecca De Mornay is finally being released. Is there anything you’d like to say about it?
DB: Yes, it comes out this Mother’s Day on a handful of screens and then on DVD the following week. I also have “11-11-11″ which is going to be released on DVD so watch for that was well.

gJg: Hey Terrance, it’s great to speak with you.
TZ: You too. Sorry for the way I sound. Darren and I are literally in a van driving across the country right now.
gJg: How did the story for “The Devil’s Carnival” come about for you?
TZ: I wrote the screen play and co-wrote the music with my writing partner Saar Hendelman. As a fan, I like to write about things that I’d want to see and especially with the shortage in the dare I say, sophisticated “horror musical” market.
For me, It was inspired by amusement park dark rides. As I kid I really enjoyed hopping on those rides that also involved music. That’s sort of where “The Devil’s Carnival” began. Then it just grew on that over the last couple of years to what it is now.Continued on the next page
