One Sentence: The best goth opera you will see this year. 

I now that you have too many goth opera's starring Paris Hilton, Paul Sorvino, Sarah Brightman and Anthony Head in them to pick form coming out in theaters this fall and winter, but this is the one to watch.  Yes everything written in the last sentence is true.  There is a gothic operah coming out, it does have Sarah Brightman, Anthony Head (Giles from Buffy), Paul Sorvino and Paris Hilton in it, and it is an opera (almost every line in the movie is sung). That right there almost sounds like it's worth the price of admission, right.  Weird thing about this one, however it is actually good as well. 

This movie which looks like it is a cross between, Rocky Horror and The Matrix, is an amazing attempt at something that is not going to fit into the main stream, and it is so worth watching.  It is literally a opera about a giant genetics plant run by a man, and his children, and the people surrounding and hurt by the genetics plant, and the reposessors who take back implanted body parts. It is quite the monumental undertaking and even having read about it in the Fantastic Fest book, I was not sure about this one, but after having seen it, I can say that something like this can work. 

The whole cast is amazing, Paris Hilton was wonderful, amazingly wonderful and you should go and check her out.  Paul Sorvino is traditionally an opera singer, and well it's just a delight to watch him.  Anthony Head brings back all the wonderful parts from Once More With Feeling and makes you miss him and you can't get enough of him.  

This movie is something that if you think it sounds good to you, go to the website and support.  These types of movies need support to make it and if they are going to make more of them, then it has to make money.  So check out the website, go see the movie and do whatever you can if you are in support of more movies like this.  I think it is worth the effort, becuase the movie is just so much fun.
