Welcome back to our ongoing Guilty Pleasure’s bonus series! A series we begun as part of our friends Bloodhound Pix #HorrorNotFear campaign which ended back in June. But the show rolls on now that we are a firm fixture at the Morbidly Beautiful network. So, that we will be rolling on for a long time to come!
We ran a poll on social media platforms to see which film we would look at in our “Hammy Horror Musical” edition of the series between “Repo! The Genetic Opera” and “Don’t Go in the Woods”. In which, the runaway winner was “Repo! The Genetic Opera.”
Alongside NHE host Scott Murphy to dive into this one we have a great former guest in the form of “Knuckleball” director Michael Peterson.
Over the course of the episode you will hear Mike and Scott talk about the hit-and-miss singing in the movie, try to fill-in the gaps in the movie’s world building efforts and debate whether the soundtrack is any good or not. Mike also talks about his enjoyment of seeing Joan Jett in the film but how, if he was the director, he would have made more of her cameo.
Elsewhere in the episode the pair talk about overacting extras, the randomness of this flicks ensemble cast and wonder how the film ended up with the cult following it got*
*Many apologies to any members of that cult following. It might not be for Mike and Scott but that’s just like their opininon, you know? Hopefully, you can still enjoy the episode despite our sniping.
