Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Lucia Bozzola
Referencing vintage horror, Alfred Hitchcock, and the '70s vogue for supernatural terror, Brian De Palma used his favorite genre to take aim at the sensation-seeking rock audience and the exploitative entertainment machine, skewering such '70s trends as '50s nostalgia and glam rock. With splitscreen effects, he underlines the cost of putting media reality before life, as fame becomes the ultimate Faustian bargain. That entertainment machine, however, failed De Palma, and Phantom of the Paradise flopped. But its clever cinephilia and over-the-top rock numbers have since acquired a cult following, though not on the level of another '70s glitter-horror fantasia, The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975).

    Who would've thought...

    The Phantom of the Paradise is what cult films are all about. A film you strive to watch over and over but not in succession. You know when you are hooked when you know the songs by heart and want to sing them out loud. Or that could be just me. But in any case, the plot is full of twists and turns taken from many great stories/movies in literary/cinematic history. Its worth watching at least once for those who don't get into cult films. You may find that you like it regardless of the cult film status.

    The Phantom Rules!!

    Having first watched this movie in the 70s and then seeing it again in 2007, I remembered every word to every song. It's a great musical. I'm so glad it's finally on DVD!

    Good for a laugh. Music is Great.

    Campy just like Rocky Horror. If you love Paul Williams's music... this is right up your alley. If your a fan of this era's style of film making you will like it. If not... then you wont.70's rock opera at it's best. Nuff said.

    Early de Palma Classic

    I will acknowledge that this film is not perfect, and is not designed to fit everyone's taste, but for me, it is one of the most enjoyable movies of all time. An amalgam of seemingly every movie made before it, The Phantom of the Paradise is de Palma simply having fun, and that sense of play permeates the film. Puns and homages both visual and verbal abound, and the kinetic, comic book style visuals suit the story perfectly. The acting is also particularly good, especially the lovely Jessica Harper's fragile but ambitious Pheonix, and Gerritt Graham's wildly OTT Beef. The movie though belongs mostly to Paul Williams, as it is his diabolical record mogul Swan that drives the plot, and his compositions that make up the wonderful soundtrack. A great movie to watch with a group of friends.

    Excellent - was the hit of SSBN 634 back in 1977 and still is today.

    Saw this flick while stationed onboard a FBM Submarine in the mid 70's. We picked this flick up before heading out to sea on 90 day Patrol. The whole crew fell in Love with the Female lead. We almost wore the flim out we played it so much. The topic has always come up at every Boat reunion since and I always vow to buy it. Finally after 30 years, I'm able to get it thanks to B&N.

    I adore this movie

    I have seen this movie, maybe 20 times since it's release, and love it more each time. It's a sensory feast. Jessica Harper's singing is enchanting, and Garritt Graham, as ''Beef'', is hilariously over the top.

    Cool even for dudes who aren't gay

    I'm not really a big fan of musicals(i.e. Rocky Horror,etc. to which this may be compared)but I still really enjoyed this picture. The music is cool and De Palma approached this concept very cleverly and tastefully.
