Repo! the latest

Jun. 18, 2008by: Dave Davis
Three-timing SAW director Darren Lynn Bousman has organs, bloodshed and songs on the way with REPO! THE GENETIC OPERA, but what should you expect and when will you see it?

I'll let Bousman himself explain, via his MySpace blog:

"Let me start off by dispelling some rumors.

THERE IS NO RELEASE DATE: There is a release date - and should be announced in the next couple of weeks.

THERE IS NO TRAILER: The trailer is AMAZING!!! Come to Comic Con and see it unleashed in all it's glory!

WE CAN'T HEAR ANY OF THE MUSIC: Starting in July we will start rolling tracks out for your listening pleasure!

THEY ARE NOT DOING ANY SCREENINGS: Come to Fantasia JULY 18th!!!!"


Okay, but what exactly is this crazy REPO! thing? Per the director:

"It's a musical. A musical with PARIS HILTON, and SARAH BRIGHTMAN... People kill people... and then sing about it, and then dance around their dead bodies and sing some more. "

And, unsurprisingly based on that description, it's not necessarily for everyone:

"Some of you will LOVE Repo... Some will HATE it... I am just excited that soon you can make that decision for yourself."

Bousman's entire blog entry can be read RIGHT HERE.

I'm actually willing to give this thing the benefit of the doubt on account of Anthony Head, Bill Moseley, and Paul Sorvino. And the fact that this has the potential to become a serious guilty pleasure in the years to come. Or crash and burn. But hey, personally I like them odds.

This reminds me of that failed TV show called "Cop Rock". Looks like a huge failure to me. Get rid of all the lousy singing and give us a good horror flick!

COME ON....

Bousman needs to go back to the SAW franchise. He did a really good job with II-IV, but this particular movies looks horrible. ATLEAST the SAW franchise is in good hands....

Not a Fan of this Bousman guy...

I admit, despite that, I hold "Saw 2" as a guilty pleasure, but this thing feels like a poor "Rocky Horror Picture" remake. I'm just not really interested in this... at all. Not to mention Paris Hilton is in it (yikes!).

'Nuff said.

yeah, looks terrible to me too

I hated that trailer. I love musicals, but that music pisses me off. Otherwise, it looks like it's directed by the guy who did SAW. Kind of a "been there, done that" look as well. So far, not interested.
Maybe that will change in the future.

Interesting

Sounds awesome even if it has Paris in it.

I just hope that they will stay serious with this and not try to make it comedic in anyway

Paris Hilton is skeezer, but this could be cool.
