There’s nothing else like OPERA. After the artistic highs (and box office lows) of TENEBRE and PHENEMONA, 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.
