A disfigured composer named Winslow Leach sells his soul for the woman he loves so she will perform his music. However, an evil record tycoon betrays him and steals his music to open his rock palace, The Paradise. Brian De Palma’s Faustian tale has reached cult-film status as it playfully satirizes both horror films and the rock industry. Paul Williams wrote the film’s acclaimed score and plays an evil music producer named Swan, who is responsible for Leach’s condition and troubles. The LA Times called the film a “delightful, outrageous … visual triumph.” Contains explicit content, including sexual situations and violence.
