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.

Mike Phalin

Since 1997, Michael Patrick Phalin has been a contributing writer to various websites including Dread Central, iMockery, Bloody Disgusting and KrytenSyxx. During the early 1980s, Phalin's love of the movie industry was fueled by the VHS tapes he found during his time spent at the video rental store his mother worked at. Rather than attending a daycare regularly, young Michael would form a tower of tapes with interesting cover art and go watch each one, the very first of these being the original 'A Nightmare on Elm Street.' From that point he was hooked on horror and the process behind creating special effects. In his twenties, Mike met Steve 'Uncle Creepy' Barton and was soon aiding the horror website Dread Central with film reviews. As the site grew in popularity, Phalin soon started writing news stories and conducting interviews on a daily basis. After a few years, he decided to take a break from writing to focus on other opportunities. After moving to a beach community with his wife Michelle, both were cast to appear in the final season of A&E's home improvement show 'Fix This Yard' in 2013. This event rekindled Mike's love of the entertainment industry. Between the time he spends being with his family, Michael continues to contribute to Dread Central both with writing and photography. In his mid-thirties, Phalin took up oil painting after being inspired by an episode of Bob Ross. Pieces of his artwork and photography can be found on his Tumblr and official website.

  • The Butcher

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

  • Chainsaw

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