A movie that makes sense only to the eye (and even then . . .). Full Review

Mr. Argento's methods make potentially stomach-turning material more interesting than it ought to be.

Rating: 3.5/5 -- Alternately a feast for the senses and an assault on them. It's a threadbare tale, thank goodness, as a convoluted plot combined with the crashing and banging and retina-exploding visuals would have been overwhelming. Full Review

Rating: 3/4 -- Even if it feels a little outdated, Suspiria still stands as a horror classic whose aesthetic power shadows its light story [Full review in Spanish]. Full Review

...Campy, surreal....Really quite funny, during those isolated interludes when nobody is bleeding.

The horror film and the musical have much in common, and few films stress this more than Dario Argento's best-known opus.

A beautiful bright fantasy that lives off its aesthetic. Full Review

Product Description:

Dario Argento's masterpiece of horror, with its assault of garish colors, booming soundtrack and horrifically dreamlike set pieces, is the cinematic equivalent of an exceptionally scary fun house. It tells the story of Susan (Harper) a young, impressionable American who travels abroad in order to study at a prestigious European ballet academy. From the first day, however, she begins to realize that frightening things are afoot at the hallowed institution. Enduring a rain of maggots, poisoned food and other unpleasant occurrences, she discovers that the school is a secret convening place for an ages-old witches' coven. Cut to various lengths due to violent content, the film's original full running time is 100 minutes.

Plot Synopsis:

Gory horror tale about an American dancer who goes to Europe to attend ballet school. As soon as she arrives, bloody corpses begin lining the halls, since the academy is actually a haven for sinister witches!
