Many of you know of my love for the Rock Opera genre. I discovered one today that will be released next Friday. It is called Repo: The Genetic Opera. It is listed as Fantasy, Musical, Horror.
And it is produced by Twisted Pictures.
They produce the SAW movies.
Now, if only I could stomach constant, graphic violence, I would be really excited about this. it looks FASCINATING! It is set in comic book's favorite setting: the not-too-distant future (2056). A worldwide epidemic has made organ failure prevalent. A company called GeneCo, that finances organs like new cars, has come to the rescue. Just make sure you never miss a payment, because if you do they will send out the repo men to reposess your organs. Murder is made legal, and these men literally perform sudden surgeries wherever they catch you.
And it is a rock opera.
From the trailer, the music sounds a little bit awesome. And Sarah Brightman is in it; interesting. Also interesting, although potentially less exciting, is that Paris Hilton is in the cast.
That's her in the pic as Amber Sweet.
Alexa Vega plays the ingenue. You remember her; she was the girl in Spy Kids... yeah, color me disturbed.
