Three individuals have, somehow, found their way to a carnival, set in hell, and run by the devil. The trio is made up of a kleptomaniac, an obsessed father, and a gullible teenager, all of whom are doomed to repeat the very sins that delivered them to the carnival’s doorsteps.
Director Darren Lynn Bousman (Repo! The Genetic Opera, Saw II, Saw III, Saw IV) takes the helm for this infernal fantasy centering on an immoral trio who are cast out of heaven to the Devil’s Carnival, where Lucifer himself recalls their sins in the form children’s fables.
