One of the hits of Fantastic Fest 2008 was REPO: THE GENETIC OPERA, even people who weren't convinced they'd like a goth opera starring, among many others, Paris Hilton and Paul Sorvino were pleasantly taken aback by the charmingly perverse visual excesses of the film. The immediate comparison was to ROCKY HORROR and that's fair, but lots of people who have never seen ROCKY HORROR will find a lot to love about REPO.
One person who had a blast at REPO was Austin Chronicle film critic Marc Savlov, who has a lot of nice things to say about the film. Read his review here. And read more about the film and get advance tickets here. But hurry up because this weekends screenings are filling up already.
