Scream Factory has announced that they will bring Terence Fisher’s The Phantom of the Opera (1962) to Blu-Ray in a Collector’s Edition on August 11, 2020. Herbert Lom stars as The Phantom in Hammer Films’ celebrated production of Gaston Leroux’s horror classic.
Synopsis: Mysterious mishaps bedevil a London opera house, but when tragedy strikes during an opening night performance, it’s clear that these “accidents” are the deliberate work of a deranged madman – The Phantom. When Christine (Heather Sears), the young star of a new musical is contacted by the shadowy specter, her producer investigates, tracking the ghostly Phantom to his secret underground lair.
More than an evil apparition, The Phantom proves to be a brilliant composer. Disfigured and nearly destroyed, he now demands his hellish revenge. Christine, his new star, is his one weakness, and he pays the ultimate price to keep his love alive.
