Repo! The Genetic Opera

Corrected entry: When Mag rips her own eyes out at the end of the movie, for the first few shots, the eyes are skewered on her "finger armors", but then they suddenly disappear between cuts and are never seen again. The cut is instant, so there is no time for her to have dropped them.

Correction: You can actually see them slip off a split second before the cut.

Corrected entry: During the song "21st Century Cure" (the graveyard scene), when The Graverobber takes out his tools and it cuts to Shilo, you can see her push up against the tombstone and it slightly bends. (00:10:40)

Correction: The 'bending' is actually the gravestone tipping over slightly.

erikvduyn

Corrected entry: In the scene of "21st Century Cure", the gravestone moves back easily when Shilo leans back and looks around the gravestone. (00:10:40)

SapherB

Correction: And this is why it's not unheard of to see grave stones toppled over in cemetaries.

Corrected entry: During the song "Chase the Morning," Mag says, "We have both been kept in bondage," yet a few seconds later she has no clue about her being kept in her room and gets told about it. (00:52:15 - 00:53:00)

mrsuperduck

Correction: If you listen to the dialogue/lyrics, after the line about "bondage", Mag never says anything that implies she didn't know of Shilo's being locked away. That was why she said the bondage line in the first place.

TedStixon

Corrected entry: In the song "Chase the Morning" Mag sings to Shiloh about having her mom's eyes and hair, but Shiloh wears a wig.

Adepp

Correction: Two things. First, Mag does not know that Shilo is wearing a wig, hence it is just a slip-up for her and not a mistake. Secondly, we do not know how/when/from what the wig was made, so in all probability, Nathan had the wig tailored to resemble Shilo's mother's hair, as evidenced by his love and guilt for his deceased wife.

TedStixon

Corrected entry: In the song "We Started This Op'ra Shit", when it goes to the view from the DJ Booth (where the old lady is) you can see a cameraman with a tripod off to the side of the rows of people. (01:08:25)

mrsuperduck

Correction: This would be a great mistake, with the exception that the man we see is meant to be a character within the film, who is recording the opera with a camera on a tripod, not the kind of camera used for the film shoot.

TedStixon

Corrected entry: During the song "At the Opera Tonight", when Nathan says, "No chance for peace," he brings the mask forward with it facing toward him. Then in the next cut to him, it is facing the other way around. (01:06:20)

mrsuperduck

Correction: Two problems: the sequence is a montage, and is not shown in real time. Secondly, there is at least a four-second time gap between these shots, in which he could have turned the mask around, so that he could actually put it on.

Mistakes

Right before the end credits, as Grave Robber says "But Genco may survive if it undergoes surgery", right as Grave Robber says the word "may", his lips briefly don't match what is being said. (Confirmed in DVD commentary.).

Trivia

In the film's original cut, the Grave Robber was in more sequences directly interacting with Shilo. During editing, in order to get the film to a shorter running length, several of his scenes were cut, and he became more of a narrator than a featured character.
