“Let me tell you a tale for a penny. One that you cannot hear anywhere else, not anywhere else. I heard from a birdy it doesn’t end purdy, it doesn’t end well. No, it never ends well. Let me spin you a yarn for a cent. Lord, would it not be a sin to deny yourself a tale?”

In 2008 director Darren Bousman (“Saw” 2, 3 and 4) and writer Terrance Zdunich premiered a theatrical release of their stage play/rock opera “Repo! The Genetic Opera.” Originally slated for 3000 screens, “Repo!” appeared on a mere 14, leaving the pair “in a depression, drinking gin in the bathtub,” according to Bousman.

Determined not to give up, the pair loaded the film onto a rented bus and toured it across the country, playing one show a night in any theater that would have them. With these humble “punk-rock film making” beginnings “Repo!” became a cult hit, going so far as to be called “the next ‘Rocky Horror’” by The Hollywood Reporter.
