Devil's Carnival: Alleiuia! review

This is the second of the Devil's Carnival's films, and it won't be the last. This one was much better than the first one, especially with stars such as Adam Pascal, Ted Neely, David Hasselhoff, Barry Bostwick, and of course Paul Sorvino. It was really great to see Pascal in such a supporting role, and given two songs to sing. I do hope he returns in the next one. Ted Neely, was Jesus in the original Jesus Christ Superstar, and wonderfully, a nod is given to that in his entrance in the film, when Pascal's character says to him, "What's the buzz? Tell me what's happening?" Not sure how other audiences will react to that line, but it was surprisingly lost on the savvy NY crowd. I'm also not sure the audience knew who Pascal was, so any Rent-related call-backs fell by the wayside. This is not a film for everyone, but for those who liked Rocky Horror, Hedwig, and other cult musicals; if you've not jumped on the Repo!/Devil's Carnival bandwagon, now is the time: be a part of something great!

4 1/2 out of 5.
