Talented but naive composer Winslow Leach brings his rock cantata based on "Faust" to corrupt rock producer/impresario Swan, meeting a talented singer named Phoenix in the process. Swan steals the cantata, seeing it as the perfect music for the opening night of the Paradise, his new rock palace, then has Winslow sent to prison on trumped-up charges to get rid of him. When Winslow hears Swan's debased version of his songs he escapes and is horribly disfigured while attempting to destroy records at Swan's record pressing plant. Winslow makes his way to the Paradise, Swan's new rock palace to take revenge on Swan - but can Swan be defeated?

COMMUNITY REVIEWS

Fittingly a Cult Classic submitted by majean on July 22, 2018, 12:24pm I was pleasantly surprised by this movie. It brings together Faust, The Phantom of the Opera, and The Picture of Dorian Gray in an interesting, fantastical way. The music is great, and the next day I went on Spotify to listen to the soundtrack. There are a couple of scenes that are not family-friendly, but nothing like you'd see in a film of today.
