Phantom Of The Paradise is an outrageous musical horror comedy filled with infectious music by composer and star Paul Williams. In a nutshell, Williams is a record tycoon haunted by a disfigured composer (Finley) he once wronged. Often compared to The Rocky Horror Picture Show, being of a similar genre and gaining a cult following.
The anamorphically enhanced 1.85:1 DVD exhibits a generally pleasing picture, with images that are sharp and generally well defined. Colors are nicely balanced, with accurate fleshtones, and deep blacks. At times, skin tones appear somewhat brownish. The picture has a dated quality, but images are quite solid and should surely please. (Suzanne Hodges)
