The Most Bizarre Rock Opera You'll Ever See

Where fans of Buffy, Phantom of the Opera, Saw and The Simple Life come together

A few months ago I cam across this viral video of Paris Hilton called "Repo! The Genetic Opera: Zydrate Anatomy"

Yes, I scratched my head, too. Was this like Hilton's other cinematic gems, like House of Wax and The Hottie and the Nottie?

Well, not exactly. I just saw the trailer today:

In case you don't recognize any of the other names, Hilton is singing with some folks with real pipes. Anthony Stewart Head is from Buffy the Vampire Slayer and proved he could sing in it's famous musical episode (he's also the brother of Murray Head, famous for that 80's hit One Night in Bangkok, from the musical Chess). And even more impressive is that they snagged Sarah Brightman, who originated the role of Christine in The Phantom of the Opera.

From the trailer, it looks like a combination of Jekyll and Hyde, Sweeney Todd, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, and Blade Runner. And it's all directed by the guy who brought you the movie Saw, so expect some gore if you decide to check it out. The few scenes I've seen at the website looks so strange I may just have to rent this in November
