I'd forgotten about watching this years ago, it was among many forgotten rotten VHS films that I knew probably were good but the picture quality was not. So, I watched it on glorious Blu-ray the other day and wow. Just wow. The bright colours are hypnotic. It puts to rest the ide...

Classic horror by Dario Argento. The film is quite mesmerizing with Argento's brilliant use of lighting and cinematography which creates an eerie mood well accompanied by Goblin's brilliant soundtrack. The use of chimes in horror seems to quietly get you. Argento's use of rain is...

Classic italian horror and the score is great.

In response to learning of a remake set to be released in 2012, I thought I'd share my opinion of this unique 1977 film. Very few directors have the visual style of Dario Argento, making him very unique as far as directors go. At times it seems as if the plot is in the backgrou...

A haunted ballet school splashed with a bloody barrage of colors and sound, Suspiria is undoubtedly extravagant and bizarre.

Easily Argento's finest work. Absolutely beautiful art direction, color palette and magnificent score... possibly the best score for a horror film ever. It also has the very lovely Jessica Harper in it, which is always a plus. I have to be honest here and say that I saw this when...

Argento's best known film is probably his most expressive. This is a gem to look at with all it's lush Italian colors seeping out like a blood covered canvas. If you are looking for a horror film for intellectuals, this isn't it, but if you want something that will definitely imp...

Dario Argento's "Suspiria" is a weird movie. While that's not necessarily a bad thing (and often times, is a good thing), it's not doing anything to help out this film. I'm not going to lie: the visuals, from the sets to the lighting, are excellent at capturing a certain dream-...

Creepy, atmospheric, and kinda sick in places (it IS Dario Argento after all), but also confusing and not particularly scary. The dubbing is odd and distracting -- Udo Keir with an American accent just doesn't sit right with me. The soundtrack gets some credit for being eerie and...
