Suspiria 1977
A disorientating, mind-bending descent into total madness. An excursion into the dark side of magic and witchcraft. A fairytale for adults. Dario Argento’s masterpiece Suspiria has been has been called all of the above over the years, and much more.

A young ballerina, Suzy Banyon (Jessica Harper) enrolls at an exclusive European dance school. Strict, dark, and forbidding, the academy holds a threatening secret. Following the murder of a former pupil on the night Suzy arrives, she begins to unravel the mystery of the school and its enigmatic founder, Elaina Marcos. From this bare plot, Argento builds an atmosphere of tension and dread.

Suspiria holds a special place in the hearts of most horror fans. It will be cited by most as the film that introduced them to the work of maestro Dario Argento and the joys of Italian horror films.
