Paris Hilton, Skinny Puppy to star in Horror Musical

Yes, you read that headline correctly. The Bloody Digusting News website reports: “last night at the 2007 Scream Awards Paris Hilton was nearly booed off the stage once again, but by the time they finished showing the first ever footage from Darren Bousman’s Repo! The Genetic Opera all of the boos had turned into cheers.” This rock opera about organ repossession takes us to the year 2056, in which a worldwide epidemic causes organ failure on a massive scale, enabling a biotech firm called GeneCo to begin renting out genetically-perfect organs to those who can afford them. The nature of the program is similar to a car lease, and the firm sends out a repo man if the recipient can’t make payments. In addition to Paris Hilton and Nivek Ogre, other talents involved in the project, on and off the screen, include singer Poe, Daniel Ash from Bauhaus, Yoshiki Hayashi from X Japan, Bill Mosely and Sarah Brightman. Ogre plays Pavi, the younger son of the evil mastermind behind GeneCO, and Hilton is cast as Amber Sweet, a “sexy aspiring opera diva and scalpel-slut will stop at nothing to get her moment in the spotlight.” Is this to be the Rocky Horror Picture Show of our generation? I sure hope so!

    Glee! POE?! That would be so wonderful. She is one of the few performers whose absence is duly noted and missed.

  2. hyuju Says:

    Yoshiki?! This should certainly be interesting. I do look forward to Poe, though. … but not so much Paris Hilton.

  3. Tequila Says:

    With all the drama preventing Poe from releasing albums and touring it’ll be a joy to see her do…well…ANYTHING…Paris Hilton aside this looks to be an entertaining project. If they include a scene where Hilton is disemboweled though we’d have a winner!

    I’m so tooooooooooorn!

  5. E. Black Says:

    I agree with Ashe Mischief. Poe has been sorely missed and the mention of Sarah Brightman. This is a dream (even if Paris Hilton is in it).

    Come on, guys! Am I the only one excited about Paris Hilton being in this movie? I’m not a Paris-lover, but I think it’s awesome! I think it’ll be hilarious! And, you know, I feel kind of bad for Paris. She’s not the smartest girl in the world. But here she is, finally deviating from her boring spoiled socialite routine. Y’all can hate, but I’m rooting for her.

  7. Skerror Says:

    Wow…I can’t believe this is for real. So this was the script Paris was so focused on during that jail stint. If she chums it up with Ogre and at the very least doesn’t make an asshole of herself in Rwanda…she might end up being a girl after my heart.

  8. Kevin Says:

    Wow! This movie looks super good, I’m most excited to see Paris! She will definitely add a nice twist to this movie and as nadyalev said I’m rooting for her!
