Why some people hate the movie, according to Repo! director

New York Post’s Jarett Wieselman (an unlikeable magazine well-known for being anti-Paris) wrote an article about his interview with the Repo! director. The article has a misleading title “Paris Is Keeping People From Seeing My Movie, Says Director.”

But if you read the transcript of the interview, you’ll notice that the director didn’t say Paris was keeping the public from seeing Repo! He made a few comments about the Hottie and the Nottie.

“I think the majority of hate people have for this movie isn’t because it’s a musical or bloody, it’s because Paris’ name is on the poster. And that’s sad because she’s great in it [ed note: she’s decent]. It’s the same thing with “The Hottie and the Nottie,” that was on TV last night and I watched it and laughed like five or six times. If her name wasn’t on that movie, it would have gotten at least four stars, right now it’s got zero and that’s because she’s in it,” Darren Lynn Bousman said to the NYP.

Like juju said, perhaps it would be good idea if other actresses and actors help promote the movie with Paris. Where’s Sarah Brightman, Alex Vega, Paul Sorvino…? I don’t like it when they depend on Paris or when it’s always Paris who does the promo work!

BTW, the inteview is very interesting. Check it out.

Not everyone likes horror movies and not everyone likes a rock opera, or a combination thereof.
This movie appeals to a special audience. I do think that it will sell/rent well on dvd and become a classic.

Unfortunately it was not playing anywhere near where I was this weekend or I would have invited friends to go see it.
But I will buy the dvd.

I saw it. It’s sad that there aren’t many articles about its success, especially since the media has strongly associated Repo! with Paris, but when in fact, she only plays a small role in the movie.

He may not say that people stay away b/c of Paris exactly, but it’s clearly what he means. Hopefully, this won’t be the case in a year or two, but it is now.

Ya… That’s why I’m glad that mainstream media like Perez is willing to report its success despite some bad reviews the movie’s getting recently. It’s a fact that the Repo is doing well and people can’t deny it. I do believe it can become a classic eventually.
