Fango Gets Repo’d

Repo!In the future we’ll all be 50%-75% plastic. I know it. The bad part is, none of that cosmetic surgery we’ll need to look like a million bucks will be cheap … or free. So what happens when you’ve gotten a new face but can’t pay the bill? The Repo Man comes a calling!

Fangoria had the honor to visit the set of Darren Lynn Bousman’s odd musical horror project Repo! The Genetic Opera. The film may have just wrapped filming, it still has a bit of a road ahead till it sings its way into the hearts of horror fans next Spring.

It’s a good thing there’s good word from Fango about the film: “Based on Fango’s recent set visit, the red stuff indeed flows almost as freely as Darren Smith’s baroque, bombastic wall-to-wall arias … Seeing and hearing Ogre (with his skin masks, head bolts and lithe swagger), the larger-than-life Sorvino (an accomplished tenor in his own right), the ravishing chanteuse Brightman (outfitted in ice-blue contacts) and breathy-voiced tabloid princess Hilton sharing space and swapping songs is something that only the most jaded counterculture addict could deny, and one whose innate surrealism even Bousman hasn’t been fully able to accept yet.

    This thing seems like the worst idea for a film since Xanadu.

    I figure by “breathy voice”, they meant “say-singing every song”.
