Come one, come all!
The Marivicos Carnivalé provides you quite the show! Ranging from heavenly horrors to a nuclear glow!
Come, to see Melmoth the Magnificent, the enslaved creature feature that earns Marivicos’ gold. It’s a sight worth the price of your very soul! See Eddie Marivicos—the boy gifted with second sight! But as long as he has his callgirl girlfriend, he should be alright. And the strange Abakoum, who can eat fire. All these devilish things for the spectator to admire!
See Eddie’s father use and abuse his only child for the express purpose of your entertainment!
See Eddie morph from a simple boy, an innocent tot, into his own man before he rots! Eddie only knows what he’s been told—that he’s a prisoner to be detained! Melmoth the chained! See Papa Marivicos go to WAR with both big business and the mob!
See Eddie’s life ruined in a conspiracy of BLOOD!
See a town lusting for FORTUNE!
We have a burdened boy, a mad patriarch, quite the demented figure, and a deep dark river, all which we’ll deliver, if you’d only be so kind as to unreservedly open your mind! Don’t close those eyes! But if you relent, you may one day have cause to repent. Indeed, you must be content—
With the dim, dim . . . Black River Lantern light.
