You know if you want to watch this or not and if…. Review by feat. Review by James I've watched Repo 4 times in the last week and I really might put it on one more time tonight to fall asleep to. I needed cinematic comfort food this week and Repo is exactly that for me. The first time I had watched Repo since graduating college I wrote this about it and I'm honestly pretty embarrassed and bummed out by it.
All week I've seriously considered deleting it but I decided to instead use it like I did with Zombie Bloodbath as an example of how the way I watch movies has changed over the years. I really can't tell you how many times I've watched Repo. It's been 7 times since I started on Letterboxd but we….
There are plenty of wacky moments and gothic tunes in this horror dystopia musical, but nothing is as delightful as Paul Sorvino playing a pivotal supporting role. Zydrate comes in a little glass vial I love that this is a rock opera and it also combines black comedy, dystopian fiction, and horror. I really enjoy some of the messages in this film as well How much of it is fate? How much of it depends on the choices that we make? It has unique cinematography that works perfectly for the film.
Some of the aerial shots of the city look kind of bad with the VFX; but I think it's intentional, and flows well with the occasional use of the comic panels. I love the gothic hairstyling and….

Director Darren Lynn Bousman.
Harvey Rosenstock. Bousman would hang on to direct the second, third and fourth Saw films before handing it off to David Hackl, and although he loved working on the movies, there was always another pet project that he wanted to launch: a horror-musical set in a dystopian future based on a play he staged in both New York and Los Angeles. The Genetic Opera. The result was a subpar horror musical that has earned an army of devoted fans who re-enact it live every Halloween.
The film takes place in a dystopian future where surgeries are handed out like ice cream cones and personal debt is on the rise as people take out loans to pay for their cosmetic fixes. GeneCo, run by Rotti Largo Paul Sorvino and his three children, is happy to give out loans to pay for the surgeries, but if you miss a payment, the Repo Man Anthony Head is sent to your house and either takes back the organ that you had transplanted or mutilates you.
It's a world where everyone is either entirely plastic, numb or both, and the Repo Man's daughter, Shilo Alexa Vega , is slowly learning this horrific truth. There are three important aspects of Repo! The Genetic Opera that can be examined to see why it became the cult film that it has: the cast, the ambience and the music.
In order for a film like Repo! The Genetic Opera to be taken seriously, it has to have a stellar cast, no ifs, ands or buts. Bousman, a director who likes to work both with classically trained actors and an array of interesting people, viewed Repo! Part of Repo! Much like The Rocky Horror Show , the other horror-based rock opera that attained cult status following its releas in , Repo! Despite that, the cast of Repo!
The film itself is pretty gory for a musical, but the actual horror is in the message of addiction and reliance on plastic surgery and huge financial loans that the cast is able to drive home. The second aspect of the film, and perhaps the most important, is its ambience and attitude. The Genetic Opera is full of it. In fact, Bousman told Filmmaker Magazine in that the film was made specifically with that audience in mind. When Repo! The Genetic Opera came out, I was 15 and at my heaviest goth phase.
With the exception of The Rocky Horror Picture Show and a few other independent movies, nothing in the realm of film featured a look that I was obsessing over until Repo! The last facet of the film that needs to be addressed, and what I return to time and time again, is the soundtrack. If the sets and costumes suffered from the financial setback Bousman faced from Lionsgate, the soundtrack more than made up for it.
Most of the songs, like any good musical, are tracks you can play on a car ride or just keep rotating in a playlist. Songs like "21st Century Cure," "Zydrate Anatomy," "Legal Assassin" and "Night Surgeon" are extravagant, heavy tracks that encompass the theme of the film and have a biting edge. They exist on their own and each track is so enticing that the soundtrack sticks with you far after the movie ends. There are moments when the songs are corny, but all of that ties into the trashy magic that Repo!
The Genetic Opera is known for now. The songs perfectly fit the ambience of the movie and while no one would ever argue that Repo!
