Repo!: #1 horror movie in Canada?

Repo! is ranked #1 in the Horror category on Amazon Canada in terms of sales. Note that Repo! is not really a horror movie, even though they classify it as such. It is also currently #22 in the overall DVD category. So it’s doing really well at the moment.

On Amazon US, it is ranked #62 in Movies and TV category. I think it’s amazing how the movie has grown its fan base over the months, despite the total lack of promotion.

Those who haven’t already seen it are in for a special surprise. You’ll probably either love it or hate it, but you’ll see a whole different side of Paris. It was difficult for me to follow the story when I first saw it last summer, mainly because I didn’t know the songs and the characters well enough. And it’s not easy to follow the story, but you guys are already exposed to the songs and to many scenes.

By the way, if you guys like Repo!, you should check out Queen of the Damned (my favourite movie). Repo! reminds me of this movie a lot!

I was just watching Repo! (I admit, I’ve downloaded it, but I’ve already pre-ordered the DVD) and just after the “At The Opera Tonight/Bloodbath” act (1:07:55 aprox.), there’s a voice that says “Tonight’s Genetic Opera is brought to you by Rich Prosecco”. LOL
I wonder if they are actually sponsors, or if it was an inner-joke. Also, in the same scene, there is a poster, that is being used for promotion, that uses an pic from a photoshoot Paris did years ago for FHM.
