The title Repo Men brings Darren Lynn Bousman’s Repo! The Genetic Opera (2008) to mind and indeed the two films share some significant similarities. Both take place in a not too distant future, where organs are sold on credit and repossessed if the patent falls behind on his payments; both boast significantly visceral scenes of gore and grotesque imagery.
However while Repo! is commendable for its oddly inventive horror- musical hybridity, Repo Men is a somewhat shallow and average thriller, following the clichéd ‘bad guy gets a taste of his own medicine and turns good guy’ premise.
