Eva (Eva Henger) is the new singing sensation of the Venice opera house - but weirdly enough, she is most attracted to a secret inhabitant of the place, the Phantom (David Perry), a masked violinist who lives in the catacombs beneath the place and the sound of whose violin she follows deeper and deeper into the catacombs, but he manages to keep out of her reach. But the Phantom also has the hots for Eva, and everytime he sees her shag another man (which she does quite frequently), a little piece of his heart breaks. Eventually, Eva finds herself surrounded by no less than five Phantoms - but that's ok, she has never been totally opposed to gangbangs. However, none of the five was the real phantom, these were all just guys who wanted to cheat her into a gangbang, apparently. Finally, the real Phantom makes himself known to Eva - to shag her. But was it all real or just a fantasy induced by watching too much of Lon Chaney's Phantom of the Opera (snippets of which are frequently used during this movie)?


In the late 1970's and early 80's, director Joe D'Amato without a doubt left his mark on horror and erotic cinema - for better or worse I might want to add though. He also directed a few horror-porn hybrids during that era that left hardly a head unturned.

This hardcore porn adaptation of Gaston Leroux classic tale however is not a movie he will be remembered by. Now don't get me wrong, the sex scenes in this one are pretty decent, the sets and locations are very ok, and the girls are all very cute - but storywise, Phantom has literally nothing to offer, really. It's just characters shagging each other in opera house sets, most of which are not even introduced into the plot. The whole thing goes so far that plottwists are actually hinted at - but instead of having something actually happening to move the film forwards, the film just cuts to another two (or more) people shagging.

Now as mentioned before, the shag scenes in this are ok - but why even try to bring them together in a narrative context when at the end of the day you've got nothing to tell ... despite the fact that this is even based on a story that has offered great breeding ground to quite a number of good (and admittedly even more bad) horror flicks (as well as a handful of musicals, but let's forget about those) ...
