WARNING! THIS POST CONTAINS SPOILERS FOR THE FILM REPO! THE GENETIC OPERA.

Repo! The Genetic Opera, 2008
Repo! The Genetic Opera, 2008

From the minds of Darren Smith and Terrance Zdunich, comes a world of love, passion, hate, pain, deceit, betrayal, darkness, and depravity. GeneCo is a business operation, owned by the ruthless Rotti Largo. Anyone he employs becomes his "prisoner", so to speak. They are ultimately property of GeneCo and Rotti. He performs insane operations, such as sculpting people internally. We take a look at an example shortly. Rotti possesses a dark secret: he is responsible for Nathan Wallace's late wife's death, Marni. She was the affection of both Rotti and Nathan. She was first with Rotti, but Nathan stole her from him and married her. Rotti has, since, become resentful and filled with vengeance, that he murdered Marni, leaving Nathan in misery.

Now let's rewind back to Shilo Wallace. Shilo is a very sick girl. In order to keep her safe and feeling good, she is kept locked away in her bedroom by her father, Nathan Wallace, who has a very controlling hold on her. Shilo feels as if she is trapped and she wants to break free. But she doesn't know of the horrors and dangers that lie outside of the walls of her home. Shilo receives a message from Rotti, promising to cure her if she comes to him. Frustrated with her father, Shilo escapes from the confinement of her bedroom, and she ventures outside on her journey to find Rotti.

Nathan Wallace holds dark secrets from his daughter, Shilo. One, he is the Repo Man, employed by Rotti. Whenever someone has a debt that's owed to Rotti, or if an employee tries to leave GeneCo, Nathan is the man to find that person and re-claim what was given to them - usually an organ or a body part. He then brutally murders the victim. Two, he refuses to speak of Marni, his late wife - and Shilo's mother - and the past that led to her death.

Blind Mag is the voice and face of GeneCo. She is Rotti's secret weapon. She was once blind, but Rotti gave her eyes. But not just ordinary eyes. Her eyes, not only gives her phenomenal vision, but they allow her to see things. Rotti also gave Blind Mag her extraordinary voice, which allows her to sing harmoniously. Her singing is so beautiful, it almost locks you into a trance. When Blind Mag escapes GeneCo to find Shilo, Rotti sends the Repo Man to find her and kill her. Blind Mag finds Shilo and tells her about her mother. When she returns to GeneCo for the finale of the show, she stabs out the eyes Rotti gave her, and is met with a grisly death.

Graverobber is a ruthless, greedy con artist. He sells illegal surgeries from the Black Market for cheap. His surgeries are like drugs for a lot of people, and he is "god". Rotti's daughter becomes addicted to surgeries from Graverobber, and she goes to him every chance she gets.

This film unfolds in story-like fashion, with eerie undertones and musical scores. It all leads to a gruesome, blood-filled tragedy finale. This is the world of GeneCo.
