Suspiria Synopsis:
In 1977 Suspiria terrified audiences worldwide. Now, just over forty years later, Dario Argento’s neon-soaked nightmare returns to the big screen in dazzling 4K, showcasing the film’s vibrant Technicolour palette in all its deep red (and green, blue and gold) glory.

Ballet student Suzy Bannion (Jessica Harper) arrives at a prestigious dance academy in Freiburg, a school plagued by gruesome and supernatural happenings. Soon students begin to die in horrific circumstances – is Suzy next, and can she uncover the academy’s sinister secret before it’s too late?

Italian horror (‘giallo’) auteur Dario Argento’s visionary symphony of terror, Suspiria (co-written by his then-girlfriend Daria Nicolodi) abandoned the traditional conventions of giallo in favour of a witchy brew of magic and mystery. A ground-breaking masterpiece beloved for its bravura use of colour and hallucinogenic storytelling, Argento’s masterpiece is the most famous Italian horror film of all time. This year, before you see Academy Award-nominated director Luca Guadagnino’s (Call Me By Your Name, A Bigger Splash) hotly anticipated remake, give yourself over on Closing Night, to the incomparable beauty and horror of Dario Argento’s Suspiria.
