Suspiria (18)

Film still from Suspiria

Italian horror auteur Dario Argento unleashes the ultimate cult film, with his visionary symphony of horror.

Ballet student Suzy Bannion (Jessica Harper) arrives at the prestigious Tanz Academy in Freiburg, a school plagued by gruesome and supernatural happenings. Soon students begin to die in horrific circumstances – is Suzy next, and can she uncover the academy’s sinister secret before it’s too late?

Abandoning the black gloves of the giallo in favour of a witchy brew of magic and murder, Argento carves a Baroque nightmare, saturated with expressive colour and punctuated by shocking violence. Considered the most famous Italian horror film of all time for its vivid, groundbreaking style and jaw-dropping bloodshed, Suspiria returns for its fortieth anniversary to assault audiences once again.
