Fri night I attended a screening of Repo! The Genetic Opera. I haven't seen anything like this since the glory days of Rocky Horror. I was one of the few people not dressed up as a character from the film. The audience sang along with every song and listened with rapt attention as director Darren Lynn Bousman, actor/writer Terrance Zdunich, and star Alexa Vega (better known as Carmen Cortez in the Spy Kids film franchise)answered questions. There was even a little burlesque show before the film. As for the movie. Over the top is a phrase that def comes to mind. Gorey, gothic and humorous this film is entirely ridiculous and that's the point. This one is sure to be a cult classic in the years to come. - Brad Filicky
