Five weeks after Repo! The Genetic Opera! wrapped production, director Darren Lynn Bousman reports that a first cut of the film in is the can. And while that is a cause for celebration, Bousman is becoming more unsure of what the audience for this musical horror film might be.
“The truth of the matter is – I have no fucking CLUE what the public and movie goer is going to say about this movie…” Bousman writes in his latest blog entry. “As I have said numerous times – this isn’t SAW… Nor is it SWEENY TODD… It’s a hybrid of horror, comedy, and good old fashion ROCK and ROLL!”
Bousman hopes to garner a Rocky Horror-ish response, with people singing in the theaters.
“[that] is my TRUE dream of the this movie… That I walk into a theatre somewhere and hear the audience singing along to ZYDRATE ANATOMY – or WE STARTED THIS OPERA SHIT…”
Repo! The Genetic Opera! is set to hit theaters on April 25th 2008.
