Ep. 32 - PHANTOM OF THE PARADISE (1974)
5 days ago
Brian De Palma's 1974 rock opera is the very definition of a "psychotronic film": derided by critics upon release and ignored by audiences (except in Winnipeg!), it's gone on to garner a huge cult following and is generally considered among De Palma's best.
And yet, Gary had never heard of it! Which means that its cult is still growing. So this week, we discuss whether or not the film is worthy to sit among the greats in the Psychotronic Hall of Fame!
SYNOPSIS: A disfigured composer sells his soul for the woman he loves so that she will perform his music. However, an evil record tycoon betrays him and steals his music to open his rock palace, The Paradise.
Help us decide if the film goes into the Psychotronic Hall of Fame by casting your vote in our poll!
Come back next week as we get back into our Summer of '87 series!
