Beneath the Opera House
He's always there
He watches Phantom films
Down in his lair
The Phantom Reviewer's Theme Song

The Phantom Reviewer is an internet reviewer who specializes in media relating to The Phantom of the Opera. Within the show, the Reviewer's story is that he was born deformed and lived in cage. The Shah of Persia held him captive and forced him to watch terrible films. After 1001 nights of torture, he finally snapped when he was forced to watch Batman & Robin. He escaped to Paris, where lived underneath the Opera House and began to review Phantom films. He often forced his love, Christine, to watch these films with him.

After two seasons of the show following this formula, the Persian and Raoul went to go rescue Christine. The Reviewer trapped them and forced them to watch Dario Argento's awful Phantom film. The film was so bad that Christine chose to blow up the Opera House rather than watch the film again. Everyone but the Persian died as a result.

The Phantom Reviewer's corpse ended up in Germany where he was revived by Dr. Frankenstein. He ended up living under the Adelphi Theater in London where Andrew Lloyd Webber was putting up a production of Love Never Dies. There he saw Maria Cornetto (also voiced by Biscuits), the reincarnation of his beloved Christine. He at first helped her get the part of Christine before abducting her and forcing her to watch Phantom films with him. The show has followed this latter format for the last three seasons.

The Reviewer has an extensive collection and knowledge and can really find the great (but mostly the horrible) in all of these adaptations. He allows for an interesting retrospective of the Adaptation Overdose that is The Phantom of the Opera.
