Eva (Eva Henger) is the new singing sensation of the Venice opera house
- but weirdly enough, she is most attracted to a secret inhabitant of the
place, the Phantom (David Perry), a masked violinist who lives in the
catacombs beneath the place and the sound of whose violin she follows
deeper and deeper into the catacombs, but he manages to keep out of her
reach. But the Phantom also has the hots for Eva, and everytime he sees
her shag another man (which she does quite frequently), a little piece of
his heart breaks. Eventually, Eva finds herself surrounded by no less than
five Phantoms - but that's ok, she has never been totally opposed to
gangbangs. However, none of the five was the real phantom, these were all
just guys who wanted to cheat her into a gangbang, apparently. Finally,
the real Phantom makes himself known to Eva - to shag her. But was it all

all very cute - but storywise, Phantom has literally nothing to
offer, really. It's just characters shagging each other in opera house
sets, most of which are not even introduced into the plot. The whole thing
goes so far that plottwists are actually hinted at - but instead of having
something actually happening to move the film forwards, the film just cuts
to another two (or more) people shagging.
Now as mentioned before, the
shag scenes in this are ok - but why even try to bring them together in a
narrative context when at the end of the day you've got nothing to tell
... despite the fact that this is even based on a story that has offered
great breeding ground to quite a number of good (and admittedly even more
bad) horror flicks (as well as a handful of musicals, but let's forget
about those) ...
