A sinister secret lies behind locked doors as a series of gruesome murders unfold in this classic Italian horror by the celebrated Dario Argento. Listen closely enough and you might hear its ghoulish sighs. Argento interweaves folklore, occultism, and German Expressionist aesthetics to create a richly horrific tale set in the blood red halls of a famous ballet school. As an American newcomer, Suzy begins to succumb to its darkness and must resist the spell of sleep before her time runs out. Recently restored from the original uncut 35mm version. 1977, 4K DCP, 98 minutes.
This Halloween night screening of Argento’s Suspiria prepares viewers for Luca Guadagnino’s anticipated remake.
