Repo! The Genetic Opera

Repo! The Genetic Opera is truly the definition of ridiculous.  Anthony Stewart Head (from Buffy), Alexa Vega (Spy Kids), Sarah Brightman (Phantom of the Opera), Paul Sorvino (Mira’s father) and Paris Hilton (tabloids) star in this futuristic musical where repo men take back replacement organs from people who can’t pay.

I’m not sure how better to state this.  It’s a horror/slasher musical.  Bill Moseley sings while slashing up an employee.  Anthony Stewart Head puts his hand inside a debtor and moves his mouth like a hand puppet.  Sarah Brightman plays a beautiful, creepy blind singer.  The film’s highlight is truly when Sarah Brightman and Alexa Vega sing “Chase the Morning”.  It’s entrancing.

Even Paris Hilton’s performance is memorable in this film, where she plays a surgery-addicted debutante.  It’s a small part, but it makes me want to see Hilton in more clothed productions.

If you:
• Like musicals
• Like slasher movies
• Like dystopian future fiction
• Do drugs sildenafil otc

… then you will love this film.  It’s available for rent on the Xbox 360, and worth it.
