Critic Reviews for Terror at the Opera

All Critics (22) | Top Critics (2) | Fresh (20) | Rotten (2)

  • 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.

    January 21, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Argento's Opera is a film of rare beauty, a celebration of love's absence and the ferocious force of the gaze.

    December 4, 2001 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    October 26, 2020 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…
  • 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."

    July 1, 2020 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…
  • Allowing us voyeurs to watch from the stalls as he demonstrates why he's such a master of his art.

    January 15, 2019 | Full Review…
  • 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.
