There are few films more revered than Rupert Julian’s silent Lon Chaney starrer, Phantom of the Opera. The film just bleeds the word “classic”, and with Image Entertainment behind the Blu-ray release, you know the upcoming release is in good hands.
In an early announcement to retailers, Image Entertainment is prepping Phantom of the Opera for Blu-ray on November 1st.
Lon Chaney is Erik, the horribly disfigured Phantom who leads a menacing existence in the catacombs and dungeons beneath the Paris Opera House. When Erik falls in love with a beautiful prima donna, he kidnaps her and holds her hostage in his lair.
This horror classic, presented in its 1929 re-edited reissue version, features a rare early 2-color Technicolor sequence. The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video and an uncompressed mono soundtrack. Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $39.98.
