Repo! The Not-So-Generic Opera

Well... ummm.... er... well... it's... umm...


So, the first word that came to mind after watching this (I guess we call it a) teaser for Repo! The Genetic Opera was "LOL" followed by "WTF" and then "LOL" again.

This is the film by the director of the later Saw films Darren Lynn Bousman with one of the most eclectic casts you'll see for a while - Sarah Brightman, Paul Sorvino, Paris Hilton, Alexa Vega and Giles Anthony Stewart Head. That the film is a musical about organ harvesting is neither here nor there - the macabre has always been connected to the musical genre for whatever reason. But, still, this trailer thing is... just... wtf? I'm sure when we get a proper trailer with some plot exposition it'll start to make a lot more sense but at this present moment we have:

Sarah Brightman looking like she stumbled off the set of The Phantom of the Opera, Paris Hilton looking she she stumbled on set after a night of heavy drinking at a dominatrix club after entering a Kelly Osborne lookalike contest, and Anthony Stewart Head looking like he belongs in the Hostel franchise.

It's all frightfully bizarre, but could be... entertaining? Who knows. I certainly don't. At least it looks original as these things go. It's apparently being released in American on April 25. Hmmm.

The original plot is that a sickness destroyed the organs of the world. people buy organs at the "genetic opera" . if they cannot meet the payments after they buy the organs , than the Repo man can reposses that organ.

This is a nice article. Specially the video is nice. In my opinion buying and selling of organs are not good everytime.
