Dario Argento's 'Opera' Blu-ray Bound

Posted Thu Dec 29, 2016 at 10:00 AM PST by

The 1987 horror film is getting a Deluxe Collector's Edition in the new year.

In an early announcement to retailers, Scorpion Releasing is working on 'Opera: Deluxe Collector's Edition' for Blu-ray in the new year.

When a young opera singer takes over the leading role in an avant-garde presentation of Verdi's Macbeth, she triggers the madness of a crazed fan who repeatedly terrorizes the diva to watch the brutal murders of her friends. Will the woman's recurring nightmare hold the key to the identity of this psychopath or does an even more horrific evil lay waiting in the wings?

The Blu-ray will feature a new 2K scan of the original camera negative with extensive color correction - exclusive to this release; two different English tracks and the Italian track with English Subtitles; the film presented in two aspect ratios, each on their own dual layered discs - 2.35:1 and 1.78:1; and supplements include: NEW audio commentary with film historian Nathaniel Thompson; NEW interviews with stars William McNamara, Barbara Cupisti, Coralina Cataldi-Tassoni , Urbano Barberini and make up artist Franco Casagni; Interviews with director Dario Argento, composer Claudio Simonetti, screenwriter Franco Ferrini, special fx artist Sergio Stivaletti, press agent Enrico Lucherini, and movie historian Fabrizio Spurio; The U.S/Orion Pictures cut; Original Theatrical Trailers; and more!
