American Murder Song: The Donner Party Reunion Tour
October 16, 2017 @ 7:00 pm
Cult musical filmmakers Terrance Zdunich and Saar Hendelman welcome you to AMERICAN MURDER SONG. Embark with them on “a playful and murderous odyssey through the territories of American identity, looming mortality, and divine judgment” (Sing Out).
Having won the hearts of midnight movie audiences by starring in and co-creating the Lionsgate film sensation REPO! THE GENETIC OPERA—hailed as “this generation’s Rocky Horror Picture Show” (Hollywood Reporter) and counted amongst The 25 Best Cult Movies Of All Time by a Rolling Stone Readers’ poll—Terrance teamed up with Saar to craft the music and tales for the film series THE DEVIL’S CARNIVAL. It was declared “One of the single greatest Devil-centric stories every told” (Ain’t It Cool News). In these films, they collaborated with the Saw series horror director Darren Lynn Bousman and performers ranging from Joan Jett to Tech N9ne to David Hasselhoff.
From there, the songwriting and performing duo veered into the dusty heart of America with AMERICAN MURDER SONG, a collection of original Murder Ballads that explore history through a sensational rogues’ gallery of murderesses and cutthroats.
