Director: Darren Lynn Bousman
U.S. Opening Date: November 7th, 2008
Set in the year 2056, Repo! The Genetic Opera
tells the story of an epidemic of organ failures that devastates the
planet, killing tens of millions. Out of the tragedy, a savior emerges:
GeneCo, a biotech company that offers organ transplants... for a price.
Those who miss their payments are scheduled for
repossession and hunted by villainous Repo Men.
In a world where surgery addicts are hooked on
painkilling drugs and murder is sanctioned by law, a sheltered young girl
searches for the cure to her own rare disease as well as information about
her family's mysterious history.
After being sucked into the haunting world of GeneCo,
she is unable to turn back, as all of her questions will be answered at
the wildly anticipated spectacular event: The Genetic Opera.
Billed as a “horror/musical starring Paris Hilton”
Repo! The Genetic Opera! has “weird” and “will sink at box office
without a trace” written all over it.
Either it will be brilliantly off-beat and become a
cult favorite as years go by.
Or it will prove the dictum that anything starring
Paris Hilton is shit . . .
