The plot is impressively free of anything that does not smell of unpasteurized melodrama.

Rating: 2/4 -- The whole production feels cut and pasted, and it doesn't translate well to the big screen... Full Review

One of the great blood-and-thunder silent horror melodramas, THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA remains rollicking entertainment to this day...

Rating: 3/10 -- Commit one unforced error after another on its way to becoming one of the sloppiest major musicals of contemporary times. Full Review

Rating: 2.5/5 -- Too much of that film clung to the theatre experience, which ultimately appears wildly ingenuine on the silver screen. Full Review

Product Description:

Lon Chaney, "Man of a Thousand Faces," stars in this silent horror classic. In the film, based on Gaston Leroux's timeless novel, a disfigured, catacomb-dwelling musician (Chaney) terrorizes the Paris Opera House while attempting to turn a pretty chorus girl (Mary Philbin) into a star.

Plot Synopsis:

The Phantom lives deep in the recesses of the Paris Opera House, well hidden from cruel and prying eyes. But when he falls in love with the beauteous Christine Dane, he becomes aware of his intense loneliness; in desperation, the Phantom kidnaps his love and carries her back to his secret lair. Assuring Christine that he will never harm her, he asks only one thing: that she never remove his mask.
