My parents purchased Argento's Phantom of the Opera film about three days ago, but I was unable to begin it until last night; now I wish I hadn't.

My parents were aware that it has 'adult material' because it was both unrated and my mother had to show an ID in order to leave the store with it. As soon as it began, I knew something was up; the Phantom is not deformed, he only lived with sewer rats. Also, he has a fetish with shoving them in his trousers and arousing himself...

In one scene, he cuts these workers in half, and the gore is so realistic it scares me. The nudity is very graphic, along with the sex scenes.

Some examples are:
-Raoul and his brother discuss the relationship with Christine. Raoul's brother, trying to 'cheer Raoul's jaded spirits' takes him to a burlesque cabarets where men and women alike freely walk around in the nude. There are fat men, women, and mid-sized to sexy people. However, it's rather gross.
Raoul is laying there smoking a bong when a girl he thinks is Christine begins to... arouse him. Enraged by the fake, he bashes the place apart and is confronted by nude personel. The brothers then leave (but that scene shows many unneeded parts.... and by parts I mean....parts!)
-In another scene, the undeformed Phantom and Christine have sweet, red hot sex. He mounts her and....you get the point. It's so disgusting (and weird that it shows Christine, but none of Raoul or the Phantom). That scene lasts for quite a long time.
-There are other nude scenes, but most are brief

All in all, the movie is okay; good acting (save poor lip syncing and horrible singing); good novel loyalty. But, unless you want to see a porno/gore-fest film, I suggest you avaoid this one.

Yeah,I saw a few of the...tamer clips on Youtube and wasn't impressed at all.Hasn't Dario Argento played in several movies with such revealing scenes before though?I think I remember looking him up on IMDB and seeing some suggestive titles in his filmography.
(But it doesn't quite make sense,because deformity or no deformity,he looked darn ugly to me. tongue )

Also, the scene with the chandelier crash has tons on unneeded gore; in the novel, only 1 woman dies. In Argento's version, most of the theatre dies. One man's head goes....splash, a man's eyes bulge and fall out, other people are implaed... The entire scene is FULL of blood! I went in slow motion and caught SO much more than already seen I wanted to vomit.

And then, since Christine is missing, amid the rampage of the audience to leave the theare, Raoul asks Christine's maid where she is, and the two begin to laugh and chat, walking together, with the other crowd running and screaming behind them! That part ends with them saying 'goodbye!' and shaking hands!

It is so dull! And then the Phantom rapes Christine Shocked

I hate this movie! I hate the phantom is not the Erik i know and love. He isn't deformed, he was raised by telepathic rats (who he happens to like a little too much) and there is way to much lust and things of that nature. I think all the obscenity made the movie pointless. I never finished it.

I am not a fan of it at all, either. The sick amount of sex and nudity was ashamedly repulsing.

Count me as another person who dislikes this movie.

I'm not one to be offended by sexual content in films IF it's really in the proper context and not just there for the sake of having some sex scenes.

But this just goes too far astray from the basic story and it's a mess.

I do like a few of the costumes, but that's about the only good thing I can say about it.

I agree, I fancied a lot of the costumes, as well!
