An innocent American ballet dancer's excitement at being accepted to a prestigious European dance school turns to terror when she discovers that the institution is a cover for a murderous coven of witches.
The blood pours freely in Argento's classic Suspiria, a giallo horror as grandiose and glossy as it is gory.
A movie that makes sense only to the eye (and even then . . .).
Mr. Argento's methods make potentially stomach-turning material more interesting than it ought to be.
A stunning combination of menacing Grand Guignol atmosphere, dazzling colours, gory violence, lush décor and pounding soundtrack.
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.
Edgar Wright summed up the experience of watching Suspiria with his typical insight. "It's like a dream you've had when you've eaten too much cheese."
Its outlandish, confounding style [does] more than virtually any other film to create the exact sort of unsettled, panicky mood in the viewer that is at the heart of horror.
It's always fascinating to watch; the thrills and spills are so classy and fast that the movie becomes in effect what horror movies seemed like when you were too young to get in to see them.
From stormy start to fiery finish, it's a stylish, compelling, phantasmagoric movie.
Argento's masterpiece is a movie in which nothing and nobody makes sense.
