A Part of Music Box of Horrors 2018 | Italian Uncut Version - First Time Playing in Chicago!

The staging of an opera of the famously cursed Macbeth becomes a springboard for some of Argento's most big, brazen, aria-like set pieces, filmed with an unchained camera which at one point is seen to soar through a cavernous theater on the wings of a raven. With the interference of a lunatic on a backstage killing spree, understudy Cristina Marsillach's immersion in the role of Lady Macbeth turns still more intense, in this ultra-rich, rococo nail-biter.
