    The Rocky Horror For A New Generation, Soon To Become A Cult Classic

    I must first admit that I am not a horror movie fan, and I am not into slice people up type movies. I was very hesitant in sitting down to watch this movie, but I am a fan of both Anthony Head ("Buffy the Vampire Slayer", "Doctor Who" (2006) Episode: School Reunion) and Sarah Brightman (Best known for her role as Christine Daae in The Phantom of the Opera, which was written for her by her then husband Andrew Lloyd Webber).
    I had seen a preview for the movie and had checked the website, so I had a good idea that this movie might not be up my alley, yet the music was amazing and caught my attention to the point of having to see this movie.

    My initial reaction to this dark gothic tale of organ repossession was shock. Yet the story was one of love, betrayal, murder, deceit, greed, and vanity. The introduction and characters intertwined lives are all explained in a comic book style, which gives it a fun break from the traditional movie style. If you have a broad range in your sense of humor, you will find some great black humor that starts you off with your jaw hanging in shock but then leaves you chuckling and saying "gross" or "yuck".

    It is well worth a good look; whether you like horror, music, black comedy, or anything gothic. I loved the music so much that I watched it again the next evening, and was glad that I did as I caught even more of the story line. Another good side note, pay close attention to Anthony Head's (Nathan/Repo-Man) and Sarah Brightman's (Blind Mag) facial expressions. especially Sarah's when her character is around Paul Sorvino's character (Rotti Largo).

    Testify!

    This has to be the best cult movie of 2008. With it's catchy Rock ballad songs such as "Zydrate Anatomy" and "Chase the Morning", it's easy to see why so many people are becoming obsessed. It's sung from beginning to end (hence "Opera") with minimal dialog, which makes it hard to understand some lines.<BR/><BR/>Despite the low budget, Repo's sets, costume, and quality are beautiful and make you want to live in the futuristic world. This is not just a slasher film, although there is plenty of violence to keep gore fans happy, there is a very interesting and unique story being told here. In fact, a whole world has been created in Repo and there is plenty of room for more stories to follow. Unlike many sequels, a sequel to Repo would be completely justified.<BR/><BR/>Now don't be fooled by seeing Paris Hilton's name on there. Her role was minimal and in my opinion, she was quite good. And I have to say I was deeply amused to hear Ogre's voice as Pavi. Hilarious. <BR/><BR/>The originality of this movie is a breath of fresh air. I highly suggest you see it. <BR/><BR/>I recommend the Blu-Ray because it comes with deleted scenes and features that the DVD does not include.
