SF POD 274: Phantom of the Opera & Phantom of the Paradise


This week the Horror Duo take on a pair of "Phantom of the Opera" remakes. Cory shares his thoughts on the 1943 "Phantom of the Opera" starring Claude Rains - comparing it to the original silent film version. Forest takes on the Brian DePalma rock opera re-imagining "Phantom of the Paradise".

They also chat about the new theatrical "It", discussing what they liked and disliked, comparing this "It" to the television mini-series as well as the book. All this and is Marvel Comics going too far in the direction of equality?
