When young understudy Betty (Cristina Marsillach) takes the lead role in a new operatic production of Verdi's Macbeth, she soon attracts the attention of a knife-wielding psycho who forces her to watch - with eyes pinned open - as he brutally despatches her friends and colleagues with sadistic delight. Can Betty free herself from this unending nightmare or does a more terrifying fate await?
Would I Pay A Tenor To Watch This Opera!!!! Probably
- Terror at the Opera review by Spoons
Let's be honest. Dario Argento never has and never will top Suspiria, but Opera (or Terror At The Opera) comes pretty close. It has all the classic Argento trademarks. Brutal and bloody murders, terrific set pieces, awesome POV camerawork and a great score. It does indeed combine elements of his previous works, Inferno, Phenomena and of course Suspiria, which for me are his greatest achievments. After the very disappointing Trauma and The Phantom Of The Opera, this is Argento back at his best.
