If you had asked me about The Devil’s Carnival yesterday, I wouldn’t have known what you were talking about. I probably would have assumed it was a 70s exploitation flick that took place behind a patchwork tent where a woman gets raped in a pile of elephant dung and then seeks revenge (or something). But I would have been wrong.

The movie is a new project from the overworked Darren Lynn Bousman, who has a full dance card but decided he wanted to put another record on. The teaser trailer for the movie is an extended, 11-minute-long shot of a woman (Emilie Autumn) going about her lingerie-clad business. It’s experimental, but it looks more like it was directed by Bela Tarr because it’s a lot of nothing. There are clever little notes that are struck with some cartoonish CGI, but mostly it’s a woman just hanging around doing nothing in particular.

Now, that doesn’t mean the movie itself won’t be a hellish explosion of style. According to Shock Til You Drop, Bousman is collaborating again with Repo! writer Terrance Zdunich.

Check it (and the poster) out for yourself:
