Suspiria (18) + ScreenTalk with Dario Argento

4k Digital Restoration

A still from the 4k restoration of Dario Argento's Suspiria

CultFilms is proud to present this new 4K restoration in an unforgettable evening with Dario Argento. For one night only, the Maestro introduces his film and returns for a ScreenTalk. 

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

We are delighted to have Dario Argento introduce and discuss the film after the screening, in conversation with critic Alan Jones.
