What do Paris Hilton, Sarah Brightman, Clown from Slipknot - Paul Sorvino, Steven Perkins and Bill Mosley have in common?
REPO! THE GENETIC OPERA
Directed by Darren Lynn Bousman
Produced by Twisted Pictures and Lionsgate
Written by Darren Smith and Terrance Zdunich
Starring Paul Sorvino, Alexa Vega, Paris Hilton, Anthony Head, Bill Mosely, Ogre, Terrance Zdunich and Sarah Brightman, (cameo by Joan Jett)
In the no-so-distant future, a worldwide epidemic of organ failures devastates the planet. 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 THE REPO MAN. By fusing ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW and BLADE RUNNER, this futuristic tale of horror modernizes the rock opera genre with original music and rich, dark production design.
This rock opera boasts an entirely original soundtrack that blends equal parts goth and punk rock to form an eerie and powerful musical narrative. All of the actors performed their own songs, and the music was provided by an all-star lineup that features performances from Richard Patrick (Filter), Steven Perkins (Jane's Addiction), Clown (Slipknot), Ray Luzier (Army of Anyone), Brian Young (David Lee Roth's band), Richard Fortus (Guns & Roses), Sonny Moore (First to Last), David J (Bauhaus/Love & Rockets), Daniel Ash (Love & Rockets), Blasko (Ozzy Osborne), Tommy Clefetus (Rob Zombie's band), Melora Creager (Rasputina). Also lending her voice to the soundtrack is the edgy pop star Poe. Japanese musician and composer Yoshiki Haysahi (of the legendary rock band X-Japan) co-produced the music with Joe Bishara to create one of the most diverse soundtracks in movie history.

But back to the cd after watching the movie. So when I bought the cd I was certain I'd be completely happy. While I love the songs still I am vexed by the way the cd was cut. The songs are not in the order of the movie, very dissappointing. And worse they cut out so many perfect song moments!! You get 2 or 3 songs not shown in the movie but what's the point. I would have rather they extended the other songs and left those off. Like 'Bug a Needle'. Without seeing what this song was supposed to be about, it made no sense at all! They left out the start of the Night Surgeon where Rotti is forcing Nathan to remember. Come on guys that was beautiful work!!! Why wasn't it on the cd?? And why wasn't Gravdigger's last song on the cd. It was a very important message. The 'dummy's' part is not included in Thankless Job, I can deal with that better. Because I just end up singing that part. hehe
Either way this is a phenominal musical and if you haven't given it a try you should. But warning you will either LOVE IT or HATE IT!
It's so brilliant I have to ration myself in case I overload and out-grow it, so perhaps I should reduce it a star but it is far to fantastic and fun, albeit in its own very macabre and gory way.
If you like the combination as suggested in the title, then this could be just the thing for you.
P.S. Please make this version available on Amazon.co.uk!!!!
As for the Blu-ray portion of this review, the audio is just right and for a lower budget film, it still shines on hi-def visually. It's not as polished and punchy as premier bluray titles, but that's to be expected given the budget and look of the film.
