After hearing what a cult classic this was I rushed right out and bought it hoping for the best. While I didn't think it was amazing, it was a strange and interesting little flick. It's about a punker named Otto who quits his boring job at the supermarket after hitting a co-worker. After he is dumped by his girlfriend, learns his college fund was given to a televangelist he decides to become a repo man. From there we meet all the weirdo repo men and hear about their UFO conspiracy theories. Then is his assigned to repossess a 1964 Chevy Malibu but something really strange is in the trunk... It's unlike anything else I've ever seen and I definitely need to watch it again, but I think it's an odd fun flick that oddball cinema fans should definitely enjoy!
