With numerous interpretations of Gaston Lerouxís classic novel The Phantom of the Opera having been turned out over the years, it was only a matter of time before the slasher genre decided to take a stab at the tale Ė step forward 1989ís Phantom of the Mall: Ericís Revenge!
High school sweethearts Eric Matthews and Melody Austin are so in love, but their youthful romance is cut tragically short when Eric apparently dies in a fire that engulfs his family home. One year later and Melody is trying to move on with her life, taking up a job at the newly built Midwood Mall along with her friends. But the mall, which stands on the very site of Ericís former home, has an uninvited guest Ė a shadowy, scarred figure which haunts its airducts and subterranean passageways, hellbent on exacting vengeance on the mallís crooked developers.
Directed by Richard Friedman (Scared Stiff, Doom Asylum), and featuring star turns from Pauly Shore and Morgan Fairchild, Phantom of the Mall: Ericís Revenge swoops onto Blu-ray in an extras-packed edition which proves that Arrow Videoís love for í80s slasher fare never dies!
