The Phantom is a live action, science fiction miniseries produced for the American cable network SyFy. It was inspired by the comic strip of the same name that was introduced in 1936 by writer Lee Falk. The series focuses on Chris Moore (Ryan Carnes), a law student and practitioner of the French military discipline known as parkour traceur. While attending classes in New York his life is turned upside down when he learns he's the son of the 21st Phantom, a heroic crime fighter with a history that spans generations. Shortly after this revelation, his adoptive parents are murdered by assassins of the Singh Brotherhood, the centuries-old nemesis of the earlier Phantoms. After the attack, Moore is contacted by Bpaa Thap, the Bangallaian covert intelligence and law enforcement agency set up by the 1st Phantom over 500 years before. Agreeing to work with the organization to become the 22nd Phantom, Moore takes on his birth name, Kit Walker, and starts to train with organization members such as the Walkers' trusted advisor Abel Vandermaark (Jean Marchand) and close friend Guran (Sandrine Holt). In a Phantom costume providing enhanced speed and strength, Kit attempts to halt the Singh Brotherhood's new plot - a brainwashing device implanted in cable television boxes. He does this while attempting to determine the Singh mole within Bpaa Thap and get serious with his new girlfriend, EMT Renny Davidson (Cameron Goodman). Written by Daniel and Charles Knauf and directed by Paolo Barzman, The Phantom was produced by Muse Entertainment and RHI Entertainment as a possible backdoor pilot for a future series. Though initially made for SyFy, the four hour miniseries first premiered on Canada's The Movie Network in December of 2009. It made its SyFy debut in June of 2010.

Eccentric scientist Dr. Alex Zorka (Bela Lugosi) is carrying on various experiments in his secret laboratory with the aid of his assistant Monk (Jack C. Smith). Zorka has invented many strange weapons of warfare, including a devisualizer belt which renders him invisible; a terrifying, eight-foot tall robot (Edwin "Bud" Wolfe). He also has a deadly meteorite fragment from which he extracts an element that can induce suspended animation in an entire army. Foreign spies, operating under the guise of a foreign language school (great cover), are trying to buy or (mostly) steal the meteorite element, while his former partner, Dr. Fred Mallory (Edwin Stanley), miffed that Zorka will not turn his inventions over to the U.S. Government, blows the whistle on him to Captain Bob West (Robert Kent) of the Military Intelligence Department. Tired of answering the door and saying no to the spies and the government, Zorka moves his lab and but when his beloved wife (Dora Clement) is killed, Zorka swears eternal vengeance against society, and decides to use his inventions to make himself world dictator. And he would have if not for his assistant Monk, an escaped convict virtually enslaved by Zorka, who is cowardly, treacherous and totally incompetent, and whose accidental or deliberate interference with Zorka's efforts repeatedly frustrates his master's grand schemes.

January 8, 1939
"The Phantom Creeps" was Universal's 44th sound-era serial (between "The Oregon Trail" and "The Green Hornet")and was re-issued to theatres in 1949 by Commonwealth Pictures Corporation, a distribution set-up handling primarily Universal re-issues. Commonwealth had no hand at all in the production of this serial (as incorrectly shown on site) as they were a distribution company only. Some sources mistakenly identify them as the serial producer because all of the 1949 re-issue prints (and the 16mm prints sold to television circa 1952) show "Commonwealth Pictures Corp. Presents" above the title.There is a whole lot of difference between "presenting" and "producing", a fact that some sources appear to not know or don't care. The serial is of interest to some collectors as it re-unites Bela Lugosi and Edwin Stanley from 1931's "Dracula", and the crater-discovery of the meteorite fragment by Zorka (Bela Lugosi)in the serial is stock footage from Universal's 1936 "The Invisible Ray." The stock footage of an explosion and avalanche used in Chapter 11 comes from Universal's 1934 serial, "The Vanishing Shadow." Plot finds eccentric scientist Dr. Alex Zorka (Bela Lugosi)carrying on various experiments in his secret laboratory with the aid of his assistant Monk (Jack C. Smith). Zorka has invented many strange weapons of warfare, including a devisualizer belt which renders him invisible; a terrifying, eight-foot tall robot (played by stuntman Edwin "Bud" Wolfe and not circus giant Bud Wolff), and he also has a deadly meteorite fragment (which he found in a 1936 movie with Boris Karloff)from which he extracts an element which can induce suspended animation in an entire army. Foreign spies, operating under the guise of a foreign language school (great cover), are trying to buy or (mostly) steal the meteorite element, while his former partner, Dr. Fred Mallory (Edwin Stanley), miffed that Zorka will not turn his inventions over to the U.
