Lynn Bousman: ?After making Repo!, I can take on everything else?
Sitges became the world capital of sung opera. Darren Lynn Bousman premiered Repo! The Genetic Opera, a movie based on the theatrical opera by the same name, an industrial rock musical set in a neo-gothic future of blood, flesh and leather.
"After making this movie I can take on everything else", the director confessed at the presentation of his new, long-awaited film. The movie, full of catchy tunes and with only about four spoken words, combines different genres, like musical and science fiction. Lynn stated that "people judge the movie before even seeing it because it's a musical".
After an epidemic, the planet suffers from a shortage of organs. Transplants are expensive and doubtful debtors are pursued by a very special collector, Nathan, played by Anthony Head. There's no terror and rock'n'roll lacking in Repo! The Genetic Opera.
