We’ve scored some cool things over the past few years, but this one really takes the cake! Last night we attended a very special screening of a short film entitled REPO! The Genetic Opera, which was directed by none other than Darren Lynn Bousman (Saw II, Saw III)! The short is being used as a pitch for a feature length film, which is going to set the world on fire! I seriously haven’t seen anything this unique in a long time — I’d say it’s Rocky Horror meets Phantom of the Opera meets The Crow. Can you think of anything cooler? Today we were provided with a handful of images taken right from the short, so right here, right now, you’re all the first to see! Read on for the pics, a synopsis and to see who guest stars!
An epidemic of organ failures devastates the planet – killing tens of millions. Panic erupts and scientists feverishly make plans for a massive organ harvest. Out of the tragedy, a savior emerges – GENECO.
A multi-billion dollar biotech company, GeneCo manufactures salvation… for a price: if you can’t afford that transplant surgery, don’t worry, GeneCo offers easy organ financing. GeneCo’s handy payment plans cheat death – for now – but all financed body parts are subject to legal default remedies, including… REPOSSESSION!
For those who can’t keep up with their organ payments, collection is the responsibility of ORGAN REPO MEN, skilled assassins contracted by GeneCo – ordered to recover GeneCo’s property by any means necessary.
The short film guest stars Shawnee Smith (Saw II, Saw III) and Michael Rooker (Slither).
