The Phantom of the Opera is a strange little book. It has a murderous premise, it is well put together. And the mysterious figure turns out to be a genius who uses the imagination of a young girl who has a penchant for the beauty of her own surroundings. It is a horror-thriller that has positioned itself as a classic of its time and serves in part to highlight the beauty of our own surroundings. But in the era of horror novels, it is not exactly an undisputed classic or literary miracle. Here are the weirdest Adaptations of the Phantom!
The rebirth of classic monster stories went exactly as we had expected. But it remains surprising that the tone has ever left the committee. It was the horror of Wes Craven giving birth to Freddy Krueger. Or a new era when the Vorhees clan terrorized sexually active teenagers everywhere. Frankly, this brought BDSM into the genre, with unique results. The film deserves the label “funny” because it is far too banal. But it is also one of the best horror films of all time.
The Phantom of the Mall doesn’t even have the audacity to lean on the cheesy quality of its summary. The kids are everywhere in Gaston Leroux. I think the 1980s slasher version of Phantom is the weirdest. And that’s before the man kicks himself in the face with a baseball cap. The hip teenagers of 1980 only cared about the phantom opera. And while the musical became a box office hit, so I’m not sure what to do.
Chances are that in this age group, a lot of these titles will be remembered more than you’d like to admit. The Phantom of the Megaplex moves the action to a multiplex cinema. It is haunted by the ghost of an old theater that once inhabited the land behind the new Megaplex. The Phantom remake was inspired by horror. But like many Disney Channel films, the jokes are wide-ranging. So, the film covers an astonishingly broad genre.
Once upon a time, it was a brilliant idea to have the Phantom of the Opera adapted by Dario Argento, but how could it go wrong to bring Giallo’s grandfather to the cinema? The phantom in the mall, the strange thing, is the fact that it exists at all.
Unfortunately, Argento’s 1990s were full of his Suspiria and Bird of Crystal Plumage, but not his most successful films.
The Phantom of the Opera, played by Julian Sands, is scarred, his face deformed, and wears one of five bad wigs on screen. Il Fantasma dell’ Italian Opera makes the most amazing creative decisions for no apparent reason and makes it possible. There is also a rapist who has a fetish for rats, and Erik is raised by rats from a young age, like a penguin in Batman Returns. It’s never explained, but he’s a rat, so why does he look like that?
The most explicit sexual adaptation is the story of the Phantom and Christine, played by Argento’s own daughter Asia, who is raped. The phantom then rapes her, and she connects the seed with all the weird behavior that might be found, but she’s also telepathic. Argentine apparently played up the story for a laugh and completed it with his own daughters, Asia and Asia’s daughter.
It is not difficult to see why the book would have inspired the murky footsteps that followed and even more so in the case of its sequel, The Phantom of the Opera. The weirdest Adaptations of the Phantom are clearly out of the league of the original. Still, they are entertaining enough!
