Rock Opera version of Phantom Of The Opera with elements of Faust. Record producer Swan steals both the music and the girl (Phoenix) from composer Leach. Disfigured Leach plans revenge on Swan and his rock palace, The Paradise, and becomes The Phantom. Leach signs _contract_ with Swan to complete rock opera based on the life of Faust for Phoenix. Double crossed by Swan who hires _heavy metal_ singer Beef. Leach destroys himself and Swan. Producer Swan has stolen the music composed by Leach. Leach wants revenge. When he tries to destoy Swan's company, he gets a horrible accident. With a mutilated face he searches for other ways to get his revenge.
 

Comments

Before DePalma went mainstream... ...he made this unpretentious little flick, a straight homage to numerous horror movies.Phantom is debatably his best movie:it certainly ranks among his best.It's well cast, Paul Williams is amazingly effective as the evil manipulator, Gerrit Graham is at his funniest, all of the musical numbers are fun, and everyone else is highly entertaining.The plot is a bit much at the end, and resolves a bit too neatly, but other than that a must-see.
