"A timeless masterpiece"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Director Brian DePalma's lost classic. Worthwhile on the soundtrack alone the film stars William Finley as a musician who's “Faust” cantata is stolen by the evil music mogul known as Swan for the opening of his musical playground “The Paradise”.

With a combination of genres (musical/horror/fan­tasy/comedy) its one of the zanniest films ever made. It came out a year before the cult fave The Rocky Horror Picture Show, but manages to outdo it in music (with all music written by Paul Williams (who also stars as Swan)), and story which is kind of a parody on the Phantom of the Opera, Glam Rock and the music industry as a whole.

Unmissible for fans of DePalma with visual techniques reminiscent of his other great films (with split screens, revolving cameras, Hicthcockian inspirations etc). All performances are spectacular and the soundtrack makes you want to watch it again and again and again..

The downer is no features other than a lame trailer, but what a film!

Description

He's been maimed and framed, beaten, robbed and mutilated. But they still can't keep him from the woman he loves.

Paul Williams wrote the acclaimed rock and roll score for this musical horror classic, and stars as an evil record tycoon haunted and taunted by a disfigured composer he once wronged. Cheered by Los Angeles Times as a 'delightful outrageous... visual triumph', this hilarious send up of the glam rock era is pure entertainment from beginning to end!
