DonnyHo replied to JulyDiaz's topic in How Did This Get Made?Long time listener, first time poster. So, i watched "The Phantom" on Friday night, then on Saturday night I watched 'Elvira, Mistress of the Dark'. And i was shocked to see the climaxes of both films are pretty much the same thing: In 'The Phantom', Drax collects the magical objects he's been looking for (3 skulls), while in 'Elvira' Vincent Talbot collects the magic object he's been looking for (his sisters magic cook book). These objects give them powers they didn't have before. Both the Phantom and Elvira 'discover' that their rings, which have been present the whole time, have the power to counteract the powers that Drax/Vincent have acquired. In both films the rings were never shown to have powers until this point. During the final, climactic battle, Drax/Vincent shoot an energy beam at the Phantom/Elvira and the ring is used to block said beam. Then the rings emit their own beams, which engulf Drax/Vincent in a other worldly fire causing them to disappear. And for good measure the pirate island burns (from lava), while Elvira's house also burns ( form regular fire). So is 'The Phantom' just a really odd homage to 'Elvira, Mistress of the Dark' or did i just stumble on a weird ass coincidence?
