"Whether or not you belong to the army of dark-eyeliner-wearing androgynes that are giving the movie the cult it seeks — and who’ve filled up the Bloor Cinema once already when it played Toronto After Dark last month — you have to concede that the year in film has yielded nothing remotely like this goth phantasmagoria. And while it only rarely achieves its ambitions, Repo! The Genetic Opera still ventures into territory that even genre movies seldom travel." --- Jason Anderson, Eye Weekly
