Are you ready for the REPO: THE GENETIC OPERA final poster? Can anyone ever be truly ready?

Published at: Sept. 17, 2008, 8:03 p.m. CST by quint

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. I get the feeling that Repo: the Genetic Opera is either going to blow my mind, blow period or will be an incredibly fascinating trainwreck. I can't see this movie being dull. I'll know in a couple days when I catch it at Fantastic Fest. Lionsgate has forwarded a little Repo packet for you good folks. Below you'll find the final one-sheet (click to make big) and I have links for the official site here and also a link where you can sample tracks of the songs. I'm seeing the flick this Friday (at 9:30pm) and I'll see where I fall on this flick. Hope to see some of you out at Fantastic Fest! Here's the poster:

    Isn't Lionsgate going to Midnight Meat Train this one too?

    by The Winged Doucheman

    Nikki Finke said so, so it must be true.

    Is Warwick Davis in this?

    ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW

    by the book

    Yep....Looks like someone left out an original idea again. Fuck's wrong with people today?

  • Sept. 17, 2008, 6:23 p.m. CST

    AND SOUNDTRACK IS SHIT

    by the book

    Definitely sounds like they were going for a ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW type movie. **Note to yourselves** Don't waist peoples time and money.

    It's OGRE From SKINNY PUPPY

    paris hilton?

    by Zach_Talks_Back

    what the hell... why won't that whore just die already. Instead we lose Heath? there truly is no god.

    Capone is a pussy for treating Paris like a movie star!

    by GQtaste

    I don't know if you guys read his interview w/ her but it was atrocious. He kissed her ass left and right. What a shallow cunt she is and it showed tough Capones true colors.

  • Sept. 17, 2008, 7:49 p.m. CST

    this movie looks awesome

    by Gungan Slayer

    im not usually into these sorts of films, but damn, there's just something about this project that maintains my curiosity. And Quint...let the Lionsgate people know that there are people willing to watch this. Rumors abound the internets that they're going to dump this in a few theaters, similar to Midnight Meat Train

    by future help

    oops! wrong cult film. (a real cult film)

  • Sept. 17, 2008, 9:03 p.m. CST

    yeah, Lions Gate will probably dump this

    by Jarek

    The whole Peter Block slate looks to be up for a good ol' fashion Hollywood style a**-raping. The Burrowers, this, Midnight Meat Train. Only Saw comes unscathed because it's such a huge property.

    Ogre

    by hipnosismag

    Ogre from the band Skinny Puppy

    I love ignorant judgements...

    by Auriellis

    ...by people who haven't even gone to check out the site or learn about the movie. Of course that is what this site is about sometimes. So far I'm reserving judgement until I actually see it. The clips on the website are very catchy and interesting and even Paris Hilton seems to be a good addition. So far I'm thinking it's going to be pretty good but I could be wrong.

  • Sept. 17, 2008, 9:43 p.m. CST

    BackRiverCatfish, instant cult classic 'cause they said so.

    by Stereotypical Evil Archer

    As easy as that.

    Paris does not swallow cum

    by TallBoy66

    I saw the video, she spits when that douchebag blows his load. I think to be a full on whore, you have to swallow. She spits. That doesn't fit. The gals is complex.

  • Sept. 17, 2008, 9:56 p.m. CST

    Actually, she may just take a pearl necklace...

    by TallBoy66

    Been awhile since I seen it, but the point remains - whores swallow, she doesn't, what does that make her?

  • Sept. 17, 2008, 10:15 p.m. CST

    It's got Anthony Stewart Head in it

    by Melvin_Pelvis

    so don't expect to be able to hear any of his lines clearly<br> Everyone else will be at least twice as loud as him<br> And if there is any background noise or music, you won't hear him at all<br> You'll see his lips barely moving and go: *WTF did he say? WTF did he say?*<br> You can't even try lip reading what with the minimal movement

  • Sept. 18, 2008, 1:17 a.m. CST

    Doesn't appeal to me much

    by lordgrimplemort

    Even without that moronic blonde who every media outlet keeps insisting is a celebrity for some reason I can't understand, I don't have much interest in this. Please don't let this movie make any money or become any kind of a cult hit like it's trying so hard to do. If it succeeds, Paris will only be encouraged (as if she needs any encouragement), but worse still, moviemakers will keep putting her in movies.

  • Sept. 18, 2008, 2:43 a.m. CST

    You'll be one of the few to see this Quint...

    by Ecto-1

    You'll be one of the few to see this in a theatre Quint considering how Lionsgape have shit all over its release. They did the same with Midnight Meat Train. So fuck them and the Saw franchise, as that's the only shit they seem to care about. They ain't getting my money no more.

  • Sept. 18, 2008, 2:53 a.m. CST

    what a cast

    by thinboyslim.

    a homemade pron star, a cruise ship singer, and a coffee bean peddler. this just can't fail.

  • Sept. 18, 2008, 7:09 a.m. CST

    I'd rather see...

    ...Repo Man: An Opera. <p> "I don't want no communists in my caaaaar.... Or christiaaaaaans..."

    YESYESYESYESYESYES

    by Veraxus

    I just watched some clips on the official site AND HOLY FUCKING FUCK this movie looks like fifty kinds of awesome. I'm THERE... provided it plays anywhere nearby.

    Whore's Swallow?

    by Rick Flemming

    What does that make your mom, Tallboy?

  • Sept. 18, 2008, 8:50 a.m. CST

    Sarah Brightman and Ogre in the same movie?

    by rev_skarekroe

    Also Paris Hilton, Bill Mosely, and Anthony Stewart Head? I never thought I'd see the day.

  • Sept. 18, 2008, 9:11 a.m. CST

    Anthony Head singing again

    by skimn

    For those who couldn't get enough of Once More With Feeling. Actually the guy's got a sweet singing voice. But "instant cult classic" spells BO failure, released on DVD by February.

  • Sept. 18, 2008, 10:16 a.m. CST

    It's a great movie

    by BitterMan23

    Original and entertaining. Hence why its own studio is burying it. "Originality? Fuck that, bring on Jigsaw and whatever family drama Tyler Perry just churned out." - Joe Drake, Lionsgate.
