Overview

From Giallo maestro Dario Argento, Suspiria is a gripping and gory little number. Arriving in the middle of a brutal storm, young American ballerina Suzy Bannion (Jessica Harper) sees and hears too much on the way to her new prestigious German dance academy, which sits just outside of the Black Forest. A ballerina has gone missing, there are weird footsteps at night, a creepy little boy dressed like Little Lord Fauntleroy is staring at you, and the grand dames of the school appear to have a witchy agenda beyond jetés and pliés.

Why You Should See This Film

Italian prog-rock legends Goblin provide the ultimate horror soundtrack to complement Argento’s saturated cinematography and exquisite ‘70s faux-Art-Nouveau production design. The band famously developed innovative instrumentation to achieve their satanic sounds, including squeezing plastic cups, taking hammers to metal buckets and recording their own nightmarish disembodied voices. Argento was visually inspired by Walt Disney’s classic fairy-tale Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, which led to Suspiria being the final film to be processed in famously vibrant three-strip Technicolor. Keep your eyes peeled for the director’s killer cameo!
