Repo! The Genetic Opera

Critics Consensus

Bombastic and intentionally gross, Repo! The Genetic Opera has a unique style but lacks the wit and substance to be involving.

Movie Info

Saw series mainstay Darren Lynn Bousman reunites with Twisted Pictures producers Oren Koules and Mark Burg for this futuristic shocker detailing a terrifying epidemic of organ failures. The denizens of planet Earth have been devastated by inexplicable and widespread organ failures, and as a result scientists begin planning a substantial organ harvest. Though an innovative biotech conglomerate subsequently offers the fearful public a means of maintaining their health by enacting a series of hassle-free organ payment plans, things begin to get messy when it's revealed that the financed body parts are subjected to legal default, and that failure to maintain proper payment will result in forceful repossession of the organs. Paul Sorvino and Spy Kids' Alexa Vega star alongside celebrity socialite Paris Hilton in the Lionsgate film. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Repo! The Genetic Opera

    Loved the music, loved the visuals, loved the story. Repo! is a really creative movie that yanked on the strings of my black heart. Each character brings something important to the story, and it's hard not to become emotionally invested in a few of them. The music also helps, as it just fits every scene perfectly. Who knew Paris Hilton could be a part of something so awesome?

    It's stylish, loving the punk rock setting. Some songs are good, some are not. Casting was weird, lack of creativity.

    I enjoyed the concept of Repo! The Genetic Opera, however this film doesn't rival The Rocky Horror Picture Show. The film is very elaborate and effective, and does have good music. The film was directed by Darren Lyn Bousman who previously cut his teeth on a few Saw films. Produced by Twisted Pictures, Repo! The Genetic Opera is a good enough, modernized horror musical with plenty of gore for today's new breed of horror fans. I enjoyed this film, however I felt that it wasn't especially great, I thought that it would be very good, considering some of the review in horror circles, but I felt slightly disappointed in the film. Not saying that it's bad, quite on the contrary, I'm just saying that this film was slightly overhyped. Repo! will surely please gore fans, as the film doesn't lack in blood and gore. The songs are good, and Paris Hilton's screen time isn't too bad either (surprisingly), this film is a good enough film to watch, or despite the fact that it's not as good as The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Repo! The Genetic Opera is still a memorable viewing experience. If you've enjoyed the Saw films, then you'll most likely going to enjoy this film. A good blend of music, horror and plenty of gore make this a must see for horror fans. Repo! The Genetic Opera is a fairly eccentric musical, but considering the horror aspects of the film, what do you expect? An interesting addition to the horror musical genre, Repo! The Genetic Opera is a film that will stick you for some time.
