A haunted theatre, filled with the vengeful spirits of a tragically-trapped performance troupe murdered in a fire 13 years ago, waits for the once-grand palatial playhouse to re-open with a new show...and bring in new victims. From Director Raymond Yip (ICEMAN, THE WARLORDS) the team that thrilled audiences with THE HOUSE THAT NEVER DIES brings a new, harrowing chronicle of horror to life.

  • A spooky and stylish thriller that sustains interest even after it veers from the flamboyantly fantastical to the relatively realistic.

  • Eventually, even the story sinks under the weight of its forced grandiosity and literal-mindedness.

  • Like one of its unfortunate acrobats, the movie spins out of control.

  • "Phantom" glories in its own artifice. The movie is carried by sweeping widescreen images, dynamic camera movements, impressive special effects and a color scheme that contrasts icy blues against fiery reds.

  • Raymond Yip Wai Man's Phantom of the Theatre has all the easy-to-digest charm of a Disneyland attraction. Also most of the built-in limitations.

  • It may seem corny to American audiences but it's entertaining and handsome, with a grand sense of design, lavish costumes, and bigger than life emotions, like a lavish, colorful old Hollywood picture with modern special effects.
