Overview

Gaston Leroux's classic tale of love and suspense gets a face-lift in this horror story loosely adapted from Leroux's novel. Christine (Jill Schoelen) is a young classical vocalist who, in the midst of performing a recently discovered piece by an obscure composer, is struck on the head by a sandbag and wakes up in London in 1884. Eric Destler (Robert Englund) is a composer who is desperate to succeed -- so much so that he sells his soul to the devil in exchange for writing songs that people will love. However, the devil adds a twist to the bargain by horribly scarring Eric's face, which can only be disguised by flesh from a living victim. Living below the London Opera House, Eric works night and day on his music; when he hears Christine's voice he falls in love, he and lures her to his lair. Eric decides that Christine is the perfect woman to sing his music; he coaches her to a perfect interpretation of his work, and he kills anyone who stands between her and success. Future Saturday Night Live star Molly Shannon made her film debut in a small role in the film's modern day sequences.

    Jack The Ripper Goes To The Opera

    Not an authentic interpretation of the original story but, a good horror version. This phantom is modeld after Jack The Ripper. What makes this movie good is its darring twist and look and feel. Only problem is I wish they would have had special features on the dvd besides the trailer.

    A great horror side to the classic story!

    I rented this version over the weekend and to be perfectly honest, I was expecting to be dissapointed, but I wasn't?! This movie changed some of the major parts of the story (the location and the characters), but overall it was a great way to get the blood flowing! Some parts of it were a little more graphic than I would have thought but in the end it only added to this great HORROR version of the story! The cast was great, ALL OF THEM fit their parts very well, bravo to you all! Even though I probably won't buy this version (for the sake of my stomach) but I do recommend it for anyone who enjoys a good graphic horror story and who doesn't have a weak stomach! Just don't be expecting too much in the ways of romance or singing!!! ^_^

    Only love and music are forever

    It starts out in 1989 with Christine and a friend finding sheet music of 'Don Juan Triumphet' (Molly Shannon is in this briefly,quite a shock)During an audtion Christine is hit on the head and wakes up in another time. The phantom has sold his soul to the devil in return to be immortal through his music. One condition-he will be loved for his music and his music only so his face is made skinless. The phantom doesn't wear a mask in this version but instead the skin of his victims. This one focuses on the horrible side of the phantom and little on the love side. While this movie is good its not for children and some people might be turned off by certain parts.If you enjoy the romantic side of the phantom then you might want to check out the version with Charles Dance or the one in theater right now.

    This will scare your socks off on a dark, stormy night....

    I saw this movie on VHS a few years ago and it REALLY scared the puckies out of me, but it was very well done. I call this movie version of 'Phantom of the Opera' the 'Freddy Kreuger' version, because of the title role is played by Robert England, (aka 'Freddy Kreuger.') I am hoping to get this movie for Christmas this year, (2004) and show it to my finace. My fiance claims that 'Nothing that he would see in a scary movie scares him any more.' Well, after he sees THIS movie, (assuming that I get this movie on DVD for Christmas), I think that my fiance will CHANGE HIS MIND. I highly reccommend this movie for anybody who also likes 'Phantom of the Opera' in general. Robert England did a WONDERFUL job playing the title character, so I think that he deserves some credit for it. I was relieved to see Robert England playing something OTHER than 'Fred' on the big (or in my case, little) screen. Granted, Robert England plays another creepy person, but he does such a fine job of it, you would think that 'Freddy' actually decided to go do classic opera!
