* MedicationTampering: PlayedForDrama and {{Inverted}}. Ill child Shilo is kept homebound due to a rare blood condition, which she takes daily medication for. In the finale, [[spoiler:it is revealed that Shilo's father has been poisoning her with the "medicine," which causes her to exhibit the symptoms of her vague illness; she is completely healthy when not taking it.]]

'''''Repo! The Genetic Opera''''' is a 2008 opera film. It's written and composed by Terrance Zdunich and Darren Smith, and directed by Darren Lynn Bousman (of ''Film/SawII, [[Film/SawIII III]]'' and ''[[Film/SawIV IV]]'' fame). The film is based on their play of the same name. It's a gory, dystopian and ultimately very moving BlackComedy that never takes itself ''too'' seriously. Widely known and loved for its WTHCastingAgency (see below) and its lush soundtrack, the film has become a modern cult classic. It's also an ''actual'' opera: nearly every line of dialogue is sung, and the story is one continuous musical number.

* ViewersAreMorons: Comic book sections are integrated into the movie telling the audience, in plain text, about the Marni / Rotti / Nathan love triangle, Amber's surgery addiction, and Mag's bad contract, often before a song that gives the same information. Most egregious in the "Things you see in a Graveyard" number, where the comic spoiled the reveal that [[spoiler: Rotti murdered Marni, nearly killed Shilo in the process, and conned Nathan into thinking he botched the job.]]

** If it weren't for Shilo, he wouldn't have the job in the first place, if you assume Marni's illness was brought on by her pregnancy. The entire deal was that Nathan serves as a Repo Man to avoid being framed for Marni's death, which was caused by the medicine Nathan made for her (and poisoned by Rotti, unbeknownst to Nathan.)



* SpecialEffectsFailure: You would have thought that they could have gotten a better effect for [[spoiler:Blind Mag's big scene.]]
** It was an in-universe effect, and furthermore, that's pretty amazing for a stage show.
*** Not her wire-assisted floating... the ConspicuousCGI of her... [[spoiler: eye gouging]]. Considering that pretty much all the gore is done with practical effects, it makes this instance stand out like a sore thumb.
** There's another when Graverobber is holding a vial of Zydrate and it comes off looking like it was badly Photoshopped in later.
