In this week's all new edition of 'The Vault,' we're going back to one of the Italian master of horror's most well regarded pieces of cinematic work. That's right. We're talking about Dario Argento and the movie in question is 'Opera!' For this commentary, we invited filmmaker and occasional FEARNET blogger Drew Daywalt ('Red Clover') along with actor AJ Bowen ('The Sacrament,' 'You're Next,' 'The House Of The Devil') to offer their insight into the wild world of Argento's unique horror!
Indie label Light in the Attic is offering imported vinyl editions of the Italian rockers' early recordings, including their most beloved horror soundtracks.
The video explores and examines the themes and repeated images that are present in Argento's films - from black gloves to frightened eyeballs, breaking glass to a whole lot of water.
The folks over at Synapse Films have just announced that they've acquired the North American home-video rights to Argento's 1977 fan-favorite, with plans to release the film on Blu-ray, DVD and other optical media.
It was with great admiration - and some trepidation (because I knew his English wasn’t very good and I failed out of college Italian) - that I set about to interview Argento for his newest film, Dracula 3D. Despite the language barrier, I got some interesting info from one of my idols - and bragging rights for the rest of my life.
