More Information on The Devil’s Carnival
Director Darren Bousman’s first three major films (Saw II, Saw III and Saw IV) opened at #1 at the box office three years in a row. After the Saw films, Bousman chose to collaborate on a uniquely entertaining project with writer/performer Terrance Zdunich and went on to direct and produce Repo! The Genetic Opera, a 2008 horror-rock opera musical film distributed by Lionsgate and hailed by The Hollywood Reporter as “the next Rocky Horror Picture Show.” The futuristic Gothic opera, based on the original stage play which Bousman directed in 2002, starred Paul Sorvino, Sarah Brightman, and Paris Hilton.
Like Repo!, there is no spoken dialogue in The Devil’s Carnival. The circus sideshow-type performances in The Devil’s Carnival feature 12 original songs written by Terrance Zdunich and composer Saar Hendelman. The first week The Devil’s Carnival soundtrack was made available online, it was the #4 most downloaded album on iTunes. Of note, The Hunger Games was at #3.
The Devil’s Carnival cast includes Jessica Lowndes (“90210”), Paul Sorvino (Goodfellas), Dayton Callie (“Sons of Anarchy,” “Deadwood”), Sean Patrick Flanery (The Boondock Saints), Marc Senter (The Lost), M. Shawn “Clown” Crahan (of Grammy award-winning band Slipknot), J LaRose (Insidious), Ivan Moody (Five Finger Death Punch), Victoriandustrial rocker Emilie Autumn, Bill Moseley (The Devil’s Rejects), Ogre (of the legendary industrial band Skinny Puppy), Alexa Vega (Spy Kids), and Briana Evigan (Step Up 2).

From the Press Release:
RLJ Entertainment is set to release the action film THE LIMEHOUSE GOLEM on DVD and Blu-ray on November 7, 2017. Based on the novel Dan Leno and the Limehouse Golem by Peter Ackroyd with a screenplay by acclaimed writer Jane Goldman (Kingsman, The Woman in Black), the film is directed by Juan Carlos Medina (Painless) and produced by Stephen Woolley (Their Finest, Interview with the Vampire), Joanna Laurie (Hyena), and Elizabeth Karlsen (Carol).

The city of London is gripped with fear as a serial killer – dubbed The Limehouse Golem – is on the loose and leaving cryptic messages written in his victims’ blood. With few leads and increasing public pressure, Scotland Yard assigns the case to Inspector Kildare (Bill Nighy) – a seasoned detective with a troubled past and a sneaking suspicion he’s being set up to fail. Faced with a long list of suspects, including music hall star Dan Leno (Douglas Booth), Kildare must get help from a witness who has legal troubles of her own (Olivia Cooke) so he can stop the murders and bring the killer to justice.
THE LIMEHOUSE GOLEM DVD and Blu-ray have bonus features that include behind-the-scenes featurettes about the cast, locations, look, and the making of THE LIMEHOUSE GOLEM.

Get Weaponized – Enter Now to Win a Copy of this Dystopian Horror Novel
A few days ago we brought you an exclusive except from Zac Thompson’s dystopian horror novel Weaponized, and with the book’s Halloween release date fast approaching, we’re back with one more reminder… and a chance for you to score a copy for yourself!
Weaponized was the winner of the 2016 Crypt TV horror fiction contest. For fans of Clive Barker, David Cronenberg, and films like It Follows, Weaponized is a Kafka-esque Eighties throwback horror novel that subverts the slasher genre with a refreshing take on body horror and the twisted, violent, burgeoning sexuality that underpins the genre. It is Thompson’s debut novel.
To enter for your chance to win, just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org including your FULL NAME AND MAILING ADDRESS along with “Weaponized” in your subject line.
This contest will end at 11:59 PM PT on October 20, 2017 – so act quickly! Note: This contest is open to U.S. residents only. By entering this contest, you are consenting to allow Dread Central and its subsidiaries use of your email address.
Also, don’t forget about the contest we’re co-sponsoring with Inkshares to find the next great horror authors – just a few more weeks remain!
Truog Island is a desolate place where sexual activity is outlawed. There lives Trip Yash, bored out of his mind. That was, until he met Cron…
After a night of passion, Cron disappears, taking Trip’s virginity with him. A few days later Trip develops a rash on his hand that eventually blooms into a gun made from his own flesh. It’s not long before Trip becomes a living weapon locked in a battle against an ancient virus that threatens to ruin his island home. As his body continues to change, terrifying forces emerge with the power to weaponize the dead.
Weaponized is a nerve-shattering exploration of sexual identity and people’s strange relationship with tools of death. It is a Kafka-esque horror take on sexual orientation and sexually transmitted infections and how we villainize those who are different.
