REPO! The Genetic Opera

This offering concerns a direct to DVD release.

REPO! The Genetic Opera is one of the wierdest, most creative movies I've seen in a long long time.

The plot goes like this: in the future there is a plague which causes internal organs to fail. GeneCo is a company which builds/recycles organs..For a price. Easy finance terms are available but if you miss a payment the REPO man will come and retrieve the company's property. Each organ has a barcode on it for "easy" identification. There is drama, intrigue and subplot so fans of classical opera will be satisfied.

Musical voices are supplied by Sara Brightman and Paris HIlton! (See..I told you it was wierd)

Set design is amazing, acting is great the music is a blend of Wagnerian classical to Nine Inch Nails industrial. - the first true Rock Opera in a long while..and the genre has been sorely missed.

I'm not going to say much more about REPO..except
You all MUST see this movie! It is available from NetFlix. Watch the extra features also..and get the history of the writers.
