With Jessica Harper, Alida Valli, Joan Bennet
In Italian with English subtitles
The central cult film in the Argento cannon, Suspiria is one of those films that all horror films are measured against. Opening as a giallo but leaving it for a supernatural focus on witchcraft and fantasy, Suspiria becomes a adult fable of fantastic colors and images, making it Argento’s best known and admired work. Inspired by not only the novel it is based on, but childhood memories of Snow White and The Seven Dwarves, and his girlfriend Daria Nicolodi’s memories of her grandmother’s times in a finishing school where black magic was as important as dance, Suspiria has complex influences. A young American dancer (Jessica Harper) is accepted to a famous European Ballet Academy, but finds out, to her horror, that the institution is not what it seems...
“The only thing more terrifying than the last 12 minutes of this film, is the first 92”.
“There are horror films that scare, and there are horror films that quake the senses: Suspiria still rattles thirty years after its original release”—Slant Mag. “A wild feast of imagery that has never since been duplicated”—Filmcritic.com
