The Devil's Carnival is a horror musical film released in 2012. The movie features a star-studded cast, including Sean Patrick Flanery, Briana Evigan, and Jessica Lowndes. The film follows three individuals who find themselves in a frightening carnival run by the Devil himself. The movie opens with a prologue that introduces the audience to the Devil - played by Terrance Zdunich, who also wrote and directed the film. He tells the audience that each person's fate is determined by their choices and that we all have a specific place in the grand scheme of things.

Following the prologue, the audience is introduced to three individuals: Tamara (Jessica Lowndes), a kleptomaniac teenager; John (Sean Patrick Flanery), a grieving father seeking vengeance; and Ms. Merrywood (Briana Evigan), a trusting elementary school teacher. Each of these characters is delivered to the Devil's Carnival by a mysterious carnival worker.

Once inside the carnival, the trio is confronted with a series of mini-stories and musical performances that play out like a twisted version of Aesop's fables. Each story is a cautionary tale illustrating the dangers of giving in to temptation and sin. Some of these stories include the tale of a prideful dancer who loses her beauty, a greedy businessman who gets his comeuppance, and a conman who learns the hard way that he can't cheat the Devil.

Throughout their journey, Tamara, John, and Ms. Merrywood begin to realize that the Devil's Carnival is a place of judgment. Each character is forced to confront their own personal demons and face the consequences of their choices. The Devil himself emerges as a charismatic and seductive figure, tempting each of these characters with his promises of pleasure and power.

As the story unfolds, the audience is treated to a series of catchy and memorable songs that serve to propel the narrative forward. The musical numbers blend elements of rock, opera, and carnival music to create a unique and immersive experience.

One of the standout features of The Devil's Carnival is its visual design. The filmmakers have created a dark and twisted carnival that is both beautiful and terrifying. The set design is top-notch, and the costumes are creative and evocative.

In terms of performances, the cast is uniformly strong. Sean Patrick Flanery brings a quiet intensity to his role as John, while Briana Evigan's Ms. Merrywood is an intriguing mix of innocence and naivete. Meanwhile, Jessica Lowndes delivers a strong performance as Tamara, who goes through a significant transformation over the course of the film.

Overall, the Devil's Carnival is a dark and thrilling ride into the depths of sin and temptation. The movie features strong performances, memorable music, and a visual design that will leave audiences entranced.
