Part of Restoration Roundup
Straight from a surprise screening at this year’s sold-out edition of 12 Hours of Terror, we offer additional screenings of Dario Argento’s brilliantly deranged and ultra-stylized giallo.
There’s nothing else like OPERA. After the artistic highs (and box office lows) of TENEBRE and PHENOMENA, Dario Argento (SUSPIRIA) was on a mission to make the most accomplished giallo of his career. And that’s exactly what he did. OPERA follows Betty, the star of an avant-garde production of MACBETH, as she deals with a black-gloved maniac on a mutilation spree at the opera house. With its ultra-stylized photography, complex metaphors, and intense violence, OPERA is a brilliantly deranged spectacle — and the most breathtaking horror experience of 1987.

“A film of rare beauty, a celebration of love's absence and the ferocious force of the gaze.” —Ed Gonzales, Slant Magazine “Awash in lush visuals, killer set-pieces, and bloody shenanigans as it riffs on its well-known literary source.” —Rob Hunter, Slash Film
