THAT'S A LOT!

There are a total of 58 songs in the film, including instrumentals.

Going in, I was completely expecting this one to suck.  I was thinking it would be the worst parts of Rocky Horror Picture Show mixed with a lot of pointless violence, profanity and Paris Hilton.

QUALITY:
Decent.  The pictures gets grainy but the sound is brilliant.

BONUS FEATURES:
Poster Gallery, Commentary, Deleted Scenes, Trailer, Sing-A-Longs, Featurettes.

Surprisingly, this movie is amazing.  The music is stunningly well written and is reminiscent of something between RENT and ROCKY HORROR if written by Marilyn Manson and Trent Reznor.  The story is certainly original (if not a bit too much so) and the singing is very well rehearsed.  This one flopped and didn't garner the best reviews but I think it may have just been the wrong audience seeing it.
