A night with REPO!

Okay, we’ve been talking about Yoshiki and his involvement with REPO! the Genetic Opera for about a year now. Finally the movie came to Houston for a tour along with Darren Lynn Bousman (director of REPO! and SAW II, III & IV films) and creator Terrance Zdunich (who also plays Graverobber in the film). After the film was shown we were allowed to ask the guys some questions. Well, someone beat me in asking about Yoshiki and what was his role in th film and soundtrack was. Darren Lynn Bousman told us that Yoshiki was one of the first people to watch the 10 minute test shot of the film and loved it. He opened his studio for the film to record and produced their soundtrack. Bousman did say that Yoshiki did NOT have an influence on the visuals of the film.

Later in person I decided to poke Bousman for more information. He was really happy talking about Japanese Rock and Yoshiki. Bousman described Yoshiki as a “graceful and quiet man, very polite and nice” whereas Bousman claimed to be a loud and a crude tone person (haha he did say fuck alot which is always fun) he said that after working together they both were able to joke alot be perverted. I asked if he was there while recording and he said most of the time he was there and was really helpful, he even wrote an original song for the soundtrack. If you read the credits you see Yoshiki worked with the creators on the song, and under Yoshiki’s label – Extasy Records. He is also the exeutive producer of the film. I asked Bousman if he liked visual kei now because of Yoshiki. He said he recieved many packages from Yoshiki, packages filled with X Japan merchendise and dvds. He even joked that he probably has some items that fans have never seen before. He also is interested in listening to more VK and that he was happy that fans of that type of music could connect with the film in that aspect. I also told him that Yoshiki has been promoting the movie as well and Bousman was surprised and grateful. “Wow, I am glad he is proud of the film and pimping it out in Japan!” He would also like to work with Yoshiki again one day.

Both Bousman and Zdunich were really nice and down to earth, I was really happy I went even though I didn’t get home until 4am O-o;; The film is pure magic! IF the film is showing nearby PLEASE SEE IT!! Dvd is set to be released by next month (Jan. 20th I believe) so support by buying the movie, the soundtrack….etc! I swear, its so worth it.
