Ever since it popped up on our radar, we have been all over Repo! The Genetic Opera. Our own Adam Sweeney gave it a rave review at Fantastic Fest a little while back, and everything that we have seen since has been really interesting. For those not following along, it is a rock opera — but more of a horror rock opera, from Saw III and IV director Darren Lynn Bousman. The film stars Alexa Vega as a young girl who is finding her way in a futuristic world that is addicted to plastic surgery. And in the clip below, you will see Paris Hilton as ‘scalpel slut’ Amber Sweet, the spokesmodel for a campaign against a drug called Zydrate. But as we find out, she is also in league with the Zydrate-peddling Grave-robber, played by co-writer/composer Terrance Zdunich. Have a look for yourself below.
Personally, I think this might be the first movie role that Paris Hilton has taken that actually makes sense. I’m not sure that I’m sold on her singing, but I like Darren Lynn Bousman’s ‘don’t make her look like Paris Hilton’ strategy. That’s so crazy that it just might work.
