Suspiria is like a ride through an amusement park funhouse with candy-colored lights, eerie music, and scares that come out of nowhere. Hitchcock is on tap here as well as Bava, both an obvious influence on Argento. Never has horror been so gorgeous and artistically rendered. The cinematography, set design, and lighting are all oscar-worthy. Yes, the gore is extreme, but balances out evenly with t... read more

Noteworthy for its detached, delusory setting and characterised by express shifts in light and colour, "Suspiria" accurately captures the visceral perception and sensation of a nightmare, which in this context centres on witchcraft. In part inspired by the vivid hand-drawn cut-out animation of "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs", the film was shot with evocative Eastman colour stock and Technicolor ... read more

One of my favorite movies ever

This is the movie, along with a few others, that I consider as my favorite. One of the greatest horror movies ever, so influential that many try (more or less successfully) to achieve this cinematographic greatness. Plot is simple, yet effective. As a horror film, it creates the unease, tension and spooky atmosphere in colorful 1970s style. So when I think of this movie, the first thing that comes... read more
View all Suspiria reviews
A young American dancer travels to Europe to join a famous ballet school. As she arrives, the camera turns to another young woman, who appears to be fleeing from the school. She returns to her apartment where she is gruesomely murdered by a hideous creature. Meanwhile, the young American is trying to settle in at the ballet school, but hears strange noises and is troubled by bizarre occurrences. She eventually discovers that the school is merely a front for a much more sinister organization.

“This is the movie, along with a few others, that I consider as my favorite. One of the greatest horror movies ever, so influential that many try (more or less successfully) to achieve this cinematographic greatness.

Plot is simple, yet effective. As a horror film, it creates the unease, tension and spooky atmosphere in colorful 1970s style. So when I think of this movie, the first thing that comes to my mind are the lights and saturated colors. Perfect for a rainy October night!

Along with great photography, many memorable scenes wouldn't be complete without the perfect soundtrack ("Suspiria, "Witch"...). Possibly the best music for a horror movie ever, the original theme is a horror movie's heaven... or hell.” read more

"Possibly the paragon of Italian horror cinema. Packed to the gills with gorgeous cinematography, a vibrantly cacophonous score, phantasmagoric visuals, and unrelenting atmosphere. Like a modern, poetic fairy tale. "

" Date: 10/31/2021 Viewed: 4K UHD Re-Watch Note: Happy Halloween everyone (Halloween is probably over by the time when I post this review). I chose to end October by watching my favorite Italian film in 4K UHD. I know a lot of people have already seen this film, so I'll try to keep my thoughts to a minimum. Suspiria is a masterpiece of Italian horror. Suspiria is the perfect blend of exploitation and art-house cinema. It's not as high brow as a Federico Fellini film, but it's classier than mos"

"Re-watch - Oct. 14th Back in the '00s, one of my closest friends hosted a horror marathon in October. That night, we saved Suspiria for last & it's safe to say that by the time we got to it nobody was in the right mood for it. I didn't fully realize this at the time, but as a result I thought it sucked. As time has passed I came to the conclusion I should give it another chance. It rarely seems to pop up on streaming services, however, so when I found out one of the local theatres here was show"

"A young woman travels from the States to Germany so that she can enroll into a prestigious academy of dance. And soon finds that, instead of the graceful gallop of ballet, her instructors are more focused on the mystic moves that come from dancing with the devil. No matter what decade of cinema it is, past or present, most movies that have a dark themed story-line about dark magic try to convey their dark feeling of darkness by monochromatically limiting the color schemes to one or two dar"

"25.6. Blu-ray Uusintakatselu. Tarina on, kuin klassisesta sadusta. Muistuttaisin jälleen alunperin oppilaiden olleen käsikirjoituksessa noin kymmenvuotiaita (kts. myös ovennuppien korkeus korostamassa pienen ihmisen pienuutta valmiissa tuotteessa). Logiikka unta ja tunnelma ainutlaatuinen. Visuaalinen ilme Technicolor-väreineen, anamorfisine vääristymineen ja post-ekspressionismivaikutteisine lavasteineen puhtainta painajaista. Goblinin musiikit parasta. Mestariteoksen asema silmissäni"
