    The biggest mystery about Repo! The Genetic Opera is why the grisly Goth-horror musical is opening the week after Halloween. The second-biggest mystery is why this unfunny, unscary, preposterous bloodbath about organ transplants is opening at all. show more

    This movie was amazing, for lack of a better word. I'd gotten very hyped about it over the summer, and counted down until the theater release date, unforunately my city didn't want it to play here. I waited two months and borrowed it from a friend, it was more than I'd hoped for. Don't let the fact that Paris Hilton is in it make you not want to watch, with her ever-changing appearance you can barely tell it's her! This movie has actors with great musical talents. I highly reccomend this film to those who love Rocky Horror and the SAW films just as much as I do.
