Phantom of the Opera / A Monster in Paris
The original story Phantom of the Opera by Gaston Leroux has seen many adaptations since its original publication as a seminal work of traditional horror. Most of the updates have overshadowed the original work. From Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical version with its hauntingly sensual song, “The Music of the Night” to “A Monster in Paris,” that’s found in animation of the same name. The melody has a crafty sad but dark quality that must be noted.
The main reason why these two are lumped together is because the latter film is very loosely based on the original novel than adapted from later versions.
