Speaking of acting, that is one of the things which keeps this movie together, depsite whatever else. The acting by all main characters (specifically the beautiful Sophie Marceau) is top-notch and better than what one typically sees in such films. The excellent soundtrack also keeps the movie from being less than it would be otherwise. The soundtrack is very Egyptian, with a hint of foreboding doom about it. That keeps the viewer from getting too convinced that the phantom is less than dangerous. It also keeps reminding the viewer, very subtley and subconsciously, that the movie really is a horror movie after all.Read more ›
Meanwhile across the street from the legendary landmark a beautiful young woman named Lisa (Sophie Marceau) begins to hear strange voices and hallucinate. Are the two events connected and if so what does any of this have to do with the unidentified corpse within the sacophacus?
Critique: Released in '01 'Belphegor' is a moderately entertaining film offering surprisingly quirky and original dialogue, above average special effects and some nice atmospheric sequences of the mysterious Phantom cloaked in black gliding around the musuem. Add to the mix the charming Sophie Marceau who is always a plus to any film and you have the makings of a pretty enjoyable evening. On the negative side, the movie is a little overlong and there are some uneven spots that make it difficult to maintain your undivided interest.
My Rating: -3 1/2 Stars-.

This movie was one of the worst movies I have seen in a long time. When I ordered it I didn't realize it was in French with English subtitles. Read morePublished on December 6, 2012 by John Hargraves
I'm a big Sophie Marceau fan and wanted to give this movie a try. While I'm still a huge fan of hers, I have to believe this is not her best work. Read morePublished on February 10, 2011 by BOANJA
