The Phantom of the Opera (1962) Movie Review

It's Phantom time again in this '60s adaptation, a straightforward version with Herbert Lom (who?) as the masked man. Notably, the phantom's costume is at it's simplest here: a getup that looks an awful lot like the guy put a bag over his head. The story's pretty straightforward and unsurprising, though the music is good and the performances are all perfectly acceptable. Not what you might expect from Hammer Films.

The film appears on DVD as part of the mammoth two-disc, eight-movie Hammer Horror Series, which includes The Brides of Dracula, The Curse of the Werewolf, The Phantom of the Opera (1962), Paranoiac, The Kiss of the Vampire, Nightmare, Night Creatures, and The Evil of Frankenstein.
