How in the world is REPO! The Genetic Opera not hitting theaters midnight on Halloween? Darren Lynn Bousman’s horror musical would be the perfect way to end All Hallows Eve. Instead, we’ll have to wait until November 7th, when the film gets a limited release in Los Angeles. It is unknown if and when the film will open wide.

Lionsgate’s official description of the film; “In the not so distant future, an epidemic of organ failures devastates the planet. Out of the tragedy, a savior emerges: GeneCo, a biotech company that offers organ transplants… for a price. Those who miss their payments are scheduled for repossession and hunted by villainous Repo Men. In a world where surgery addicts are hooked on painkilling drugs and murder is sanctioned by law, a sheltered young girl searches for the cure to her own rare disease as well as information about her family’s mysterious history. After being sucked into the haunting world of GeneCo’s Genetic Opera, she won’t turn back until she finds what she’s looking for.”

Greetings from the Shore, starring David Fumero

Greetings From The Shore is an independent film by Greg Chwerchak, that stars Paul Sorvino (Goodfellas), David Fumero (One Life to Live), and introduces Kim Shaw. I had the pleasure of seeing the film a couple months ago, before it took home more than 40 awards at 70 film festivals. The film is a sweet and fresh coming of age story that is set at the Jersey Shore, which has never looked so good.

The film is screening in New York City tonight at the AMC Loews Village 7 (on 3rd Street), and like all independent films, it could use your help. If “Greetings” does well tonight, the film has a chance to open wider, and it really deserves it.

The film’s official description: “Still reeling from the death of her father, a young girl spends one last summer at the Jersey Shore before heading off to college. But when her plans fall apart, the girl stumbles into a mysterious world of Russian sailors, high-stakes gambling, and unexpected love.
