I’ve been excited about Repo! The Genetic Opera
ever since we talked to Darren Lynn Bousman
, the director of the musical venture. I know a lot of people have been willing to write off the film because of Paris Hilton’s involvement, but I think her presence is quickly countered by the numerous other names attached: Anthony Stewart Head (Buffy: The Vampire Slayer
), Alexa Vega (Spy Kids
), Sarah Brightman (Phantom of the Opera
on stage), and don’t forget award winning actor Paul Sorvino. That’s quite a cast for a futuristic opera about organ transplants… and repossession.
If you’re like me, you were excited about the film, but disappointed that it didn’t open very widely, making it hard to check it out. Purchasing something like this unseen is a bit of a coin toss, so let us help you with that by giving you the opportunity to win your own copy without having to buy it. We’re giving away three
copies of Repo! The Genetic Opera
on DVD, so you can enjoy the music and madness of the film without risking your own money. Read below for directions on how to enter and possibly win your copy.
