As scientists feverishly make plans for a massive organ harvest program, a multi-billion dollar biotech company called GeneCo begins to manufacture salvation, for a price, offering simple payment plans to those lacking the necessary funds to purchase new body parts outright.

To coincide with the film’s release, Bousman, Smith, and Zdunich, as well as various cast members, did a touring version of the film. Principal cast and crew also did extensive Q&A sessions following each screening. Because of strong ticket sales, a second and third touring session were added, in addition to a British tour across four locations. A Repo! Road Show was announced on January 28 in 10 cities. This show will be similar to the Repo! Road Tour, except it will be almost completely fan-run.

Movie Reviews ReviewsMovie Review Anthony Thurber

Score – Five Stars

Repo! The Genetic Opera” is a film that have I’ve been personally been looking forward to, as fan of the horror genre. But what made me more curious about the film, when Lionsgate decided to release this film on a few screens back in November. I couldn’t understand why, because it’s received the kind of positive buzz on the Internet, from a lot of major horror sites like Dread Central and Bloody Disgusting. The film was also gaining a cult following online, before the movie is even released.

The film takes place, in the future, where there is a worldwide epidemic of organ failure, until a biotech company finds a cure, but it’s at a price and if you don’t pay, your body parts and organ can be reposed, by the repo man.

The film follows Shilo Wallace (Alexis Vega), a young girl, who is forced to stay at her father in a gothic house, after inheriting a genetic disease at childbirth. Her father, Nathan Wallace (Anthony Steward Head) is very protective father, who is hiding a dark and murderous secret from her. She then begins to discover something from her mother’s past, when Rotti Largo (Paul Sorvino), head of the biotech company, known as Geneco, offers her the chance, to be cured, from her disease. She will then, journey out of the house to find her cure.
