Opera (Terror at the Opera)
I love Renato Casaro's beautiful poster art for Dario Argento's Opera. I've been fascinated by the striking image of the the pins underneath the eyes ever since I saw it in an issue of Fangoria back in the 80's. Many consider the film Argento's last truly great giallo and unfortunately it was the last time time he'd opt for painted artwork for the poster.
On an Argento related side note I picked up Njuta Films Profondo Rosso DVD recently and found time to listen to Thomas Rostock's interesting and informative track commentary track last weekend. The commentary track alone makes the DVD worth package up, but add the fact that you get the international cut and restored opening and end titles and you got a must buy package.
