Repo! The Genetic Opera: Oh. My. Days.

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , on March 23, 2009 by kaye

Repo! The Genetic Opera is a rock opera which was brought to the big screen last year. This cult film is set in a “not-so-distant future” where organ transplant becomes a fashion trend. It has eerie music. It has gore and violence. It has a scene where Paris Hilton losing her face… literally.

This is one of those love it or hate it films. It is graphic enough to corrupt my 4-year-old sister, who keeps asking me when she can watch “Greepo” again. actually like this film… a lot… but it will definitely go down as the weirdest film I have ever seen in my entire life.

I honestly wouldn’t encourage most people to see this film. It’s definitely not for the faint of heart, but Repo! The Genetic Opera is also visually stunning, where comic book-style graphics are married with brilliant colour manipulation during the live-action scenes.

Watch it if you dare.
