uncut print exists and it will be screened!
According to Indiewire the print was found in the storage room of a closed Italian movie theater, and now the plan is to screen the film around the United States on a road tour.
A statement read:
“The print is in excellent physical condition with no substantial wear, uncut heads and tails, minimal fading and no vinegar syndrome. Once we had the print in our film archive, we then made a very careful inspection to determine which version of ‘Suspiria
’ we had obtained. We were stunned to find that the print is a completely uncut 6 reel print with a run time of 98 minutes in Italian language.”Suspiria
was originally released in 1977 and revolves around the character of Suzy (Jessica Harper
) who travels to Germany to attend ballet school. When she arrives, late on a stormy night, no one lets her in, and she sees Pat (Eva Axén
), another student, fleeing from the school. When Pat reaches her apartment, she is murdered. The next day, Suzy is admitted to her new school, but has a difficult time settling in. She hears noises, and often feels ill. As more people die, Suzy uncovers the terrifying secret history of the place.
A 2017 American remake is set for release later in the year with Dakota Johnson
, Chloë Grace Moretz
, Mia Goth
, and Tilda Swinton
amongst its stunning cast.
There is no news if the Suspiria
uncut print will make it to UK shores as yet, but we’re hoping the BFI may prick up their ears and invite it over. We’ll keep you posted, but in the meantime, head on over to the Cfs’s YouTube channel where they have posted some clips from their find.
