The signature film of Italian horror maestro Dario Argento sends fresh-faced American dancer Suzy Bannion (Jessica Harper) off to a prestigious ballet school in Germany, where she is greeted by students fleeing in panic, secretive headmistresses (Joan Bennett and Alida Valli) and a series of murders and supernatural occurrences that grow increasingly gruesome. Does something more than the spirit of the dance live within the school's walls? Propelled by a pounding soundtrack (by Italian rock band Goblin) and bold, almost impossibly stylized Technicolor visuals, this film is a landmark work of cinematic horror. DIR/SCR Dario Argento; SCR Daria Nicolodi, from the book "Suspiria de Profundis" by Thomas De Quincey; PROD Claudio Argento. Italy, 1977, color, 98 min. Dubbed in English. NOT RATED
