Rating: 3/4 -- ...a collection of ghoulish, creative impulses rather than a coherent story. Full Review

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

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

Argento works so hard for his effects -- throwing around shock cuts, colored lights, and peculiar camera angles -- that it would be impolite not to be a little frightened. Full Review

Rating: 3/4 -- Argento accomplishes so much simply through lighting and music - which goes a long way to compensate for the stilted dialogue and awkward character interactions. Full Review

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

Suspiria is a baroque piece of esoteric expressionism that you enter - and exit - without understanding so much as feeling. 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!
