There are no current or future screenings planned for this film.

This Faustian horror/trash-rock/revenge musical from director Brian De Palma is one of the most technically impressive and energetically gonzo films of the sick ‘70s. The always-bizarre William Finley stars as the titular character, a songwriter ripped off and badly wronged by a Phil Spector-like music mogul named Swan (Paul Williams). When Swan sets his sights on the woman of the Phantom’s dreams (SUSPIRIA’s Jessica Harper) things are going to get weird. This is De Palma’s testament to everything he loves in popular cinema, a stylistic exercise with few peers, and a great time at the movies.
