Opera

Opera ★★★★½

"What is this an opera or an amusement park??"

Is this my new favorite slasher film?? It definitely is up there. I loved the setting and story, the characters aren't murder fodder you know each person plays an important role in the opera and you feel invested in the show's success.

Also, love the killer POV shots, they feel intimate in a way. The way that the killer wanted her to experience every loss, every bloody moment, scaring her into silence and isolation as he destroys the world around her.
It shows how obsession and reverence can look/feel like love but really those can just be diseased imitations.

Oof.

them daggers were OPULENT! This film is OPULENT. And ravens have never done anything wrong in their entire lives.
