Quick Dish Quarantine: HOFF’S PUBLIC DOMAIN HORRORFEST Comedy Show Presents “The Phantom of the Opera” 10.22 on YouTube
Long before Andrew Lloyd Webber introduced Christine and her Phantom stalker to Broadway, there was an ominously silent, black and white film bringing true terror to the masses. The 1925 horror flick is known as The Phantom of the Opera. Adapted from Gaston Leroux’s 1920 novel Le Fantôme de l’Opéra, the movie starred “The Man of a Thousand Face” Lon Chaney as the notorious inhabitant of the Paris Opera House causing murder and mayhem in his wake. The film is, in fact, one of Chaney’s most famous make-up transformations. (Chaney was lauded for his pantomime skills which can be credited to his upbringing being a child of deaf parents. Bet you didn’t know that!)
Thursday, October 22nd, Hoff Matthews will bring you a screening of the film masterpiece at Hoff’s Public Domain Horrorfest. The horror movie screening and comedy show will offer up new comedy segments, terrifying trivia, ghoulish games, and special guest/musician/author J. Blake Fichera (Saturday Night Movie Sleepovers podcast, Scored to Death: Conversations with Some of Horror’s Greatest Composers)! This embodiment of the classic tale of unrequited love will come to you with a brand new soundtrack complete with a cast of voice actors! Let this master work be silent no more! Join in the ghastly fun this October on YouTube!
