Contemplating slashing the hell out of this film to keep the atmospheric brilliantly shot thriller, and lose the raging insanity.
Cut- Lots of Julian Sands's psychic powers.
Cut- Rats. Lots of Rats
Cuts- Phantom hallucinating people on giant rat trap.
Cuts- Lots (not all) of sex and opium.
Cuts- The comedic and creepy ratcatcher as much as possible.
NEW- I want to insert a shot, basically exactly like the Lon Chaney 1925 film that identifies the Phantom as "ERICK. Self taught musical genius and engineer. Criminally Insane. Escaped from Devil's Island!" This will provide all the backstory the Phantom needs.
I imagine the new film will be about 75 min.
