Dario Argento’s OPERA Due for Blu-ray from Scorpion Releasing

2016_09_04 - OPERA Blu-ray

Arguably the last great movie made by Italian horror film maestro director Dario Argento, Opera, made in 1987, is another glaring omission from the current list of horror films available on Blu-ray. This will all change soon as Scorpion Releasing has announced that they are currently working on a high definition master for the film. The possible specs for this release are recounted here as paraphrased from Scorpion Releasing’s Facebook page:

45 man hours have been put into restoring the film’s color timing, in addition to removing dust and dirt

Film is framed at 2.35:1 and 1.78:1 (HD 16×9 anamorphic enhancement)

Extras should include two interviews in English (no word on the subjects yet)

Two new interviews with two Italian talents that are getting English subtitles

Eight Italian-language interviews that are being licensed Freak-O-Rama and Code Red

Street date announcement imminent

Possible three-disc set: Disc 1 would be Opera on a single-sided, dual-layered BD-50, Disc 2 possibly a soundtrack CD with all the music from the film OR a DVD of the film, and Disc 3 would be all the extras

Possible steelbook release

Salivating over this one…
