What is this place? Who are you?
My dear, petty man. I've been called many things: the chaos in the story, the anarchy in your thoughts, but for you, John, I am the excuse you give when you cannot follow the rules.

If you want standard big budget studio drivel, then this film isn't for you. But if you want to see the output of true artists without Hollywood censorship, then movie is a must see. While it is in the same vein as Repo! The Genetic Opera, it is by no means a carbon copy. At no time does it feel as if we're retreading old territory.
This film plays with the concepts of morality and good vs. evil. It follows the plight of three souls condemned to the depths for their actions. In this case Hell is an old fashioned carnival full of colorful and depraved characters. We follow the further temptation and punishment of these poor condemned sinners as they navigate the surreal carny.
The real score is the music.(Pun intended) It's not a driven rock opera feel, but it is very entertaining. Terrance Zdunich referred to the music as being filled with "heavy metal tuba". I know how that sounds but you will enjoy it.
