Alleluia! The Devil’s Carnival :- Watch Alleluia! The Devil’s Carnival on Youtube on Fire,Lucifer and his carnies are plotting against Heaven. This is how the war begins.I loved the first movie and initially had very high hopes for the second installment. But… I started to feel disappointment in what I perceived as too much too late, trying too hard and failing, based on the clips and info being released up until the premiere (last evening). I had already planned to fly out to see the movie, and remained loyal to that commitment.The film blew my mind. All my doubts, questions… all of them were answered. The music, visuals and acting was perfect. My biggest worry was if they could bridge the gap from the first film, and still bring something new. What I watched was beyond even my wildest expectations and I’m so glad that I went ahead with it! There were a lot of new (to the films) faces and while that could have been disastrous, it was exactly the opposite.Director Darren Lynn Bousman has stated that he is a big fan of the film Jesus Christ Superstar (1973) and it’s one of the movies that made him want to be a director. Because of this, not only did he cast Ted Neely (the actor who played Jesus in Jesus Christ Superstar) as The Publicist, but he also included a short cameo from Barry Dennen (Pontius Pilate in Jesus Christ Superstar) in the film, as a Denizen of Heaven that is briefly seen with The Publicist. When The Agent and The Publicist talk, The Agent says “What’s the buzz? Tell me what’s happening.” Those are lyrics from a song in Jesus Christ Superstar, in which Ted Neely (The Publicist) played Jesus. During the sequence before the song Bells Of The Black Sunday plays, the stagehand with the clapboard says “mark it up”, a possible nod to Director Darren Lynn Bousman’s first feature length movie, REPO! The Genetic Opera, in which there is a song by the same name.
