Director Dario Argento has been called the Italian Hitchcock. I think that’s a bit much, but he was damn good. Suspiria is his finest work. It’s about a girl who arrives at a prestigious ballet school in Europe when people start dying. Soon she finds out that it’s really a den of witches.
Argento’s films usually have a totally unimportant plots, but that doesn’t matter. Argento took giallo (Italian horror films that are the missing link between Psycho and Halloween) and evolved his films into Baroque horror. Each kill, each moment of suspense, every movement of the camera is high art. It’s very difficult to do justice to what you will see so I will conclude with my highest recommendation and a series of images from the film.
