Variety puts up a positive review of the latest genre musical:

If the concept of the midnight movie weren’t moldering in its grave, “Repo! The Genetic Opera” would be cutting-edge fare for the latenight crowd; one can almost hear the aud’s partisan cheering for different internal organs, depending on what is being eviscerated at any particular moment. Pet project by Darren Lynn Bousman (who helmed the second, third and fourth “Saw” movies) is a bloody mess, saddled with a score that suggests Stephen Sondheim joined Blue Oyster Cult. But the Nov. 7 Lionsgate release will be a good time for the very strong of stomach.

Still sounds interesting to me.
