Blu-Ray & DVD Dario Argento’s ‘Opera’ Gets (UK) Blu-Ray Release With New 2K Restoration from CultFilms Published 1 year ago on October 25, 2018 By Nick Bond Share Tweet Dario Argento (Suspiria) returns to CultFilms with this breath-taking new restoration of his visionary horror masterpiece Opera. Splattered with stylistic bloodshed and soaring cinematography, Opera shows Italy’s master of horror at the very height of his game. Synopsis: “When young understudy Betty 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? OPERA is a ravishing return to the giallo style Argento made his name with, awash with black-gloved killers, lavish bloodletting and the director’s expressionistic Grand Guignol excess.” CultFilms is proud to bring you this gore-soaked terror classic in a stunning new 2K restoration, with colour regrading carried out under instruction from the maestro himself and in reference to his own, preferred, original cinema print.
