Horrifying Femme Fatale – Blind Mag
The face of the Bio-Tech Company GeneCo, the company that saved the populace from the epidemic of organ failure.
Born blind, Mag signs her life away to GeneCo in exchange for the ability to see.
Singing for GeneCo Genetic Opera, Mag announces her retirement and her final performance but with contractual repercussions.
Mag is marked for repossession, delivering her final performance for the company after revealing that she is Shilo’s godmother.
She warns Shilo not to make the same mistakes she did by taking Rotti’s cure. During her final performance, Mag gouges her own eyes out and is dropped to her death by Rotti.
These eyes can do more than see. – Repo! The Genetic Opera (2008)
Let your life be a dream. Integrity. Honesty. It’s too late for me. Don’t look back till your free to chase the morning…! – Repo! The Genetic Opera (2008)
My final song! at the opera tonight! – Repo! The Genetic Opera (2008)
Repo Man, come take my eyes…! – Repo! The Genetic Opera (2008)
Blind Mag is not a traditional femme fatale, she is no final girl, no villain, and she is certainly not the heroine of the genetic opera.
But Mag is a woman who admits her mistakes, trying desperately to protect Shilo from following in her misguided footsteps.
She is a woman who made a promise to a dying friend that she would be a part of Shilo’s life, but deception, lies, and betrayal kept them from knowing each other until the near end.
Her liberation from her contract and the contractual consequences by plucking the eyes that GeneCo provided her and planned to repossess is a powerful and memorable scene from Repo! The Genetic Opera.
