Film Series: Suspiria

1977. Italy. Dir: Dario Argento. With Jessica Harper, Daria Niccoldi. 92 min.

 

An American newcomer’s arrival at a famed dance academy coincides with the grisly murder of a student fleeing the school in terror – a harbinger of more deadly things to come. Maggot showers, barbed wire, and occultism lurk around every corner in this sadistic, candy-col- ored stomach-turner that’s as terrifying as it is aesthetically striking.
