Final Poster for Bousman's Repo! The Genetic Opera

In lieu of the impending premiere of Repo! The Genetic Opera at Fantastic Fest, the final US poster has been unveiled over at AICN. I wanted to feature this today because within a few days I'll have finally seen the film and will be able to comment on it and I'm honestly a bit nervous. I was excited when this was first announced two years ago, but since then, I've grown weary. I'm hoping it's the newest cult horror classic, but I'm also afraid that it's going to suck, a lot. Even after watching the trailer, I still don't know what to think. I'll be going into the screening this weekend quite optimistic, but also cautious, just in case my worst fears are realized. Until then, take a look at the final poster for the film and sound of with your thoughts.
I don't think a lot of people really care about this movie anymore, because it's been delayed for so long, and it seems to look worse with every new photo. But then again, it could be a cult classic that no one has seen yet. I really hope it is and I'm curious whether there are more people out there who are as optimistic as I am? Who really wants to see a horror rock opera? I do, if it's done well, but maybe that's because I've got a little bit of that Darren Lynn Bousman fanboy left over from the Saw III days. What about you?
