The Phantom of the Opera 09/29/20


Hammer Films and Terence Fisher cut loose with a classic remake that’s as much a romance as it is a horror shocker. Killings proliferate at the Paris Opera house. I don’t want to jump to conclusions, but could the perpetrator be the fabled ghost that lurks in the catacombs far below? ¬†Does the fat lady sing? ¬†Herbert Lom gets his shot at front-rank horror immortality in this brightly colored thriller, co-starring Heather Sears and Michael Gough. Trailers from Hell’s Charlie Largent reviews the show that might mark the finish of Hammer’s first wave of world-shaking fright classics. On Blu-ray.
