Count Gore presents PHANTOM OF THE PARADISE
Join us for some creepy good fun when local TV legend Count Gore De Vol (Dick Dyszel) returns to present another cult favorite in the spirit of the original CREATURE FEATURE broadcasts, including vintage clips from the Count's vault and some interactive fun and games.
Brian De Palma's 1974 rock opera PHANTOM OF THE PARADISE remains a connoisseur's cult classic, nearly 50 years after its release. "More magnificent than you ever dreamed…Quite an attraction." Disfigured composer Winslow Leach (William Finley) seeks revenge on Swan (Paul Williams), the heartless producer who stole his music, which Leach wrote for Phoenix (Jessica Harper), the woman he loves from afar. Williams' wicked rock music powers Brian De Palma's outré musical, which combines elements of Gaston Leroux's "The Phantom of the Opera," Oscar Wilde's "The Picture of Dorian Gray" and Goethe's "Faust." DIR/SCR Brian De Palma; PROD Edward R. Pressman. U.S., 1974, color, 92 min. RATED PG
