Thought I’d make a master list to different versions of Phantom in release order

(Please be sure to use adblock when using Putlocker links, some of those popups can be nasty. All of them are free without membership, if it asks you to sign up get off that page. Movies on there might take a minute to load up too. Personal recommendations with have a * next to them, HIGHLY recommended versions have two.)

Gaston Leroux’s POTO E-Book (PDF, unsure what translation) *

1929 Cut of the Lon Chaney Film (Carl Davis Score, HD) *

1937 Song At Midnight (Chinese Phantom film English subbed)

1943 Basil Rathbone Radio Drama (Radio Dramatization of the 43 film)

1943 Claude Rains Film

1962 Herbert Lom Film

1964 Il Mostro dell'Opera

1974 The Phantom of the Paradise (Highly recommend as a move in general, not really an accurate adaptation rather inspired and combined with Faust and Dorian Gray elements in a dystopian type society.) **

CBS Mystery Theater 1975 Radio Drama

The Meateater (If you absolutely must watch this garbage…)

1983 Maximilian Schell TV Film

1987 Hello Kitty “Phantom of the Theater” (Why…)

1988 Animated Film *

1989 Phantom of the Mall: Eric’s Revenge (Supposedly this is an edited version with cut/shortened scenes… Nothing I can do about that I am afraid. Don’t own it yet and can’t find it anywhere else besides the DVD).

1989 Robert Englund Film *

1990 Charles Dance TV Miniseries **

1990 Susan Kay’s Phantom E-Book (PDF) **

1991 David Staller Musical (Highly underrated, while some of the acting is bad and the music lackluster I really enjoy David Staller’s portrayal. One of my favorite unmaskings and the song before that is one of my favorite Phantom songs. Also the Persian is in it so that’s cool.) *

1991 Yeston/Kopit’s Phantom: An American Musical (A musical version of the Dance miniseries. Highly recommend, though this is a bootleg missing the song “Home.” I have however inserted the studio version at the correct time.) *

1991 Popcorn (Phantom in a more modern day theater setting, have not yet seen it)

1991? Phantom of the Opera on Ice (This version is… something)

1993 Return of the Phantom DOS game full playthrough

1995 Wishbone “Paintin’ at the Opera” (Why does this exist…?)

1995 Goosebumps “Phantom of the Auditorium” (Pretty dumb but mildly amusing due to the cheesiness. Also on US Netlifx currently.)

2000 Phantom of the Megaplex

2004 Gerard Butler Film

2007 Big Finish Classics: Phantom of the Opera (Full cast audio drama adaptation, most Leroux faithful version there is.) **

2011 A Monster in Paris (3D animated film vaguely Phantom inspired, really good movie in general. Also on US Netflix currently.) **

2011 Takarazuka Phantom

2011 Royal Albert Hall Performance **

2012 Love Never Dies (Reworked Australian Production) **

2010 Mystery Legends: The Phantom of the Opera full playthrough

2013 Scooby-Doo! Stage Fright (Honestly really dumb but fun if you enjoy Scooby-Doo. Phantom’s appearance is surprisingly Leroux-ish.)

2013 Phantom of the Grindhouse (I can’t… I can’t really recommend this to be honest. MAYBE with some friends to make fun of but otherwise…)

2016 The Phantom of the Opera: A Non-Musical Adaptation by Kyle Walker (I don’t actually know anything about this one… I actually found it making this list. Dunno if it’s good. Probably watch it soon.)

Lon Chaney: A Thousand Faces Documentary

This isn’t complete by any means, I know offhand I left out Dario Argento’s, Angel of Music and Phantom of Manhatten (Not that those are worth slugging through) but I also left out the other two fanfilms out of respect for those who worked on them. I highly recommend purchasing Erik: Portrait of a Living Corpse. The Phantom Reviewer did a review of it if you are interested. This is about as complete as I care to make it. I haven’t even watched some of these myself. Feel free to reblog, that’s what I made it for. Don’t forget to sub to my YouTube channel here as well.
