DIRECTOR: DARIO ARGENTO
CAST: JESSICA HARPER, STEFANIA CASINI, FLAVIO BUCCI
A fairy tale construction at once grim and florid, Argento’s best-known film finds Jessica Harper’s American ballet dancer arriving at an exclusive academy in Germany where she discovers a dark past and occult forces at work in the present. With some of Argento’s most perversely ingenious set pieces, a plum part for former Fritz Lang muse Joan Bennett, and a spine-tingling theme by Goblin that will haunt you to the grave.
Suspiria screens in a recently discovered uncut Italian 35mm print.
