      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      The Opera house location gives plenty to work with for director Dario Argento, who hits his decadently bloody high notes here.

      Anton Bitel Little White Lies Opera is always heading backwards to move forwards, and ends, bizarrely, with its heroine crawling in joyous derangement amidst the primordial plants and critters of the natural world, in an ultimate act of atavism. Jan 21, 2019 Full Review Ed Gonzalez Slant Magazine Argento's Opera is a film of rare beauty, a celebration of love's absence and the ferocious force of the gaze. Rated: 4/4 Dec 4, 2001 Full Review Emma Wolfe SpookyAstronauts The music's beautiful and specially paired with the beautiful cinematography in this film... I can't really say a lot for the acting unfortunately. Rated: 7/10 Oct 26, 2020 Full Review Brent McKnight The Last Thing I See In a career full of nutty, brutal, style-forward horror films, few titles on Dario Argento's resume are as strange, violent, or aesthetically singular as "Opera." Rated: B+ Jul 1, 2020 Full Review Rob Aldam Backseat Mafia Allowing us voyeurs to watch from the stalls as he demonstrates why he's such a master of his art. Jan 15, 2019 Full Review Niall Browne Movies in Focus Opera sees giallo master Dario Argento working at his most gloriously OTT and this 1987 mystery contains all the traits you would expect from the Italian director: mystery, lust, violence and impressive camera work. Rated: 3/5 Dec 28, 2018 Full Review Read all reviews

      Thom G Opera is another masterpiece from the master of horror, Argento! It delivers a suspenseful giallo at its finest, complete with tension, blood, terror, sensuality, innocence, and poetry. An incredible camera work wraps it all up beautifully. Watching Opera also makes you realize that many recent horror films haven't brought anything new to the table. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 04/11/24 Full Review Aaron V The main character is tied up and forced to watch people close to her get mutilated and killed. Afterwards she is set free. This happens a few times and never does she go to or even attempt to contact the police. Now, I know horror movies are notorious for characters doing illogical or flat out stupid things, but this is SUCH a glaring issue that it detracts from the rest of the film after the killings. Suspension of disbelief right out the window...even so, would still recommend it to anyone that likes horror movies, especially slasher flicks. I guess maybe Argento just could not afford to include a police presence in this film? I don't know. Even with the stupidity of the story it is enjoyable. Or maybe because of it? Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/02/24 Full Review Alec B Insane, even for Argento (a major plot point hinges on ravens getting their revenge) but the whole idea of forcing the central character, and by extension the audience, to view the violence is undeniably great. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/26/24 Full Review Sabrina F Well, it was better than Inferno, but not by a mile. Opera is, as all Argento films, stunning to look at it. Music is constantly played throughout the film to the point where it becomes distracting. Violence is full-on display, which will satisfy horror and giallo lovers. The film is a little too long, and you will feel the time. There is a subplot that goes nowhere, because storytelling is not Argento's strong suit. Nevertheless, I am glad I checked it off "giallo to watch" list. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/08/24 Full Review michael b This Was A Outstanding Horror Movie, Loved The Opera, GREAT Job Guys.🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 Rated 5 out of 5 stars 08/01/23 Full Review Jonathan O Opera is a different kind of phantom of the opera but it's really stylish and bloody film.
