Why I won't see Repo! The Genetic Opera in theatres

1) Darren Lynn Bousman is a terrible director. Between the three Saw films he made and hearing stories from people that worked with him, its official that he needs to stop inhaling gas fumes before going to set.

2) A film is not a cult movie when you set out to make a cult movie. A real cult movie is a film that develops a following independent of the media or the film makers. It grows on its own. Its an organic, living thing. Making terrible casting choices on purpose in order to develop that WTF mentality is not a correct course of action. You can't tell people your film is cult film. That's just not how it works.

3) There is no three.

Granted, I will see it when it comes out on video. I am still a horror fan and will watch anything and everything, regardless of how bad I may think it will be. Sometimes I am surprised. Sometimes I'm not. But I won't participate in the cult marketing strategy they've got mapped out for Repo! Its trendy bullshit masked as a cult goth film.

On a lighter note, this is frickin' amazing.
