In the not so distant future - an epidemic devastates the planet. Out of the tragedy, a savior emerges: GeneCo, a biotech company that offers organ transplants... for a price. Those who miss their payments are scheduled for repossession and hunted by villainous Repo Men (Anthony Stewart Head). In a world where murder is sanctioned by law and people are addicted to surgery, a sheltered young girl (Alexa Vega) searches for the cure to her own rare disease. As she is sucked into the haunting world of GeneCo, she learns the truth about her family's mysterious history and witnesses the wildly anticipated spectacular event: The Genetic Opera.
If Circus of Horrors did a film this would be it.

Really good film, quite graphic in places but certainly not your average slice and dice type movie. Actually has a proper story line that it concentrates on.
The guy who plays the grave robber in it, I could have sworn he was Dr Haze from Circus of Horrors, however after looking at the credits it isn't him.
If you have ever seen Circus of Horrors and liked their show, you will love this, or if you like the game Bioshock this has a similar story line in places with the grave robber robbing the drug from people the same way that the children rob Eve from the dead people in Bioshock.
Really good enjoyable movie, good music throughout as well keeps it lively and entertaining.
