Aro Recommended Phantom of the Paradise


USA 1974, 87 minutes
Dir. Brian De Palma
Rating: [M]
Genres: Cult, Music / Psycho, Musical

Topics: Showbiz.


Aroview: A genuine oddity, this musical/horror spans both dir. De Palma’s satirical and horror periods, with the story of the PHANTOM OF THE OPERA updated as a rock-comic jab at the bloated 70s music industry.

Singer Paul Williams plays Faust-ian producer ‘Swan’ who rips off, torments and seduces composer William Finley, horribly scarred in an accident with a record-press. The excellent soundtrack is by Williams himself. Also stars Jessica Harper (SUSPIRIA).
