If the recent news about the Suspiria remake has you pining to watch the original in theaters, then you'll be pleased to know that The Chicago Cinema Society has discovered an uncut Italian 35mm print of Dario Argento's classic 1977 horror film, and they're taking it on tour to select Us theaters this summer and fall.
From The Chicago Cinema Society: "The Chicago Cinema Society is excited to announce that we have discovered an uncut Italian 35mm print of Suspiria. The print was rescued from an Italian cinema that had closed down and the print had gone untouched in their storage area since 1977/78. After a brief inspection to assess the overall condition of the print, it appears as if it had only been screened a handful of times at most. 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. We then privately screened the print and recorded excerpts, which can be found on our YouTube channel, to give people a better sense of what the print actually looks like. Here a clip which includes one of the more notorious cut scenes (pun intended) that does not exist in 1977 Us release prints:
We reached out to Don May at Synapse Films to see if they would be in need of our print for restoration purposes. He noted to us that they have all of the film elements that they need for their upcoming digital restoration. We then shared information on our discovery with a number of film programmers across the country, many of whom had become very interested in screening the print. Since preservation elements for Suspiria exist, we arranged a tour for our print to start late this summer. More venues have reached out to us with interest in screening our print so follow Chicago Cinema Society on Facebook and check in at our website for updates and the additions of any other screening dates. Do not miss out on this opportunity to see Suspiria in the way that it was intended to be seen! As of the moment, our print of Suspiria is scheduled to screen, with projected subtitles (soft-subbing), at the following venues:
7/28: The Metrograph, New York City, NY
9/16: The Belcourt Theatre, Nashville, Tn
Early Fall: Venue confirmed and Tba, Los Angeles, CA
10/14: Coolidge Corner Theatre, Brookline, Ma

Now this is some awesome news, horror movie lovers.
The Chicago Cinema Society (via Dread Central) has announced it has discovered an uncut 35mm print of Dario Argento’s “Suspiria” that hasn’t been screened since at least 1978. The print was found in the storage room of a closed Italian movie theater and is in such good condition that it will be touring around the country this summer and fall.
In an official message posted on their website, the Chicago Cinema Society wrote:

Synapse Films made many viewers happy last year with their Collector's Edition Steelbook Blu-ray release of Dario Argento's Phenomena, aka Creepers, and if you didn't pick up the Steelbook, you'll soon have a chance to purchase the film in a standard (but still extraordinary) two-disc Blu-ray this September, along with The Creep Behind the Camera.
Featuring three separate cuts of the film, the Phenomena Blu-ray will be released on September 12th, the same day of Synapse Films' Blu-ray and DVD release of The Creep Behind the Camera, which explores the stranger than fiction story of the making of The Creeping Terror (which is included in the special features with a new 2K scan). Below, we have official press releases with full details, as well as a look at the cover art for both films.

As the summer continues to roll on, that means we have another great week of horror and sci-fi home entertainment releases to look forward to. The folks at Scream Factory are keeping themselves plenty busy this Tuesday, as they’re resurrecting both The Lawnmower Man and Island of Terror on Blu-ray, as well as their high-def The Paul Naschy Collection, and Arrow Video has put together an incredible two-disc limited Blu-ray set of Dario Argento’s directorial debut, The Bird With The Crystal Plumage, that any fan of the Master of Horror will want to add to their collections. And, if you missed it in theaters, the horror/sci-fi thriller Life will be available on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, and DVD formats, too.

This time they may have gotten it right! If a knife or a straight razor won’t do, how about killing a victim with 500-pound metal artwork studded with spikes? Dario Argento distilled a new kind of slick, visually fetishistic horror who-dunnit thriller subgenre with this shocker, aided by the dreamy cinematography of Vittorio Storaro.

The Bird with the Crystal Plumage, 1970.
Directed by Dario Argento.
A man witnesses an attempted murder and becomes the would-be killer’s next victim.
Having recently delved into Dario Argento’s back catalogue with the excellent Phenomena Blu-ray package recently, Arrow Video are at it again by re-releasing the Italian maestro’s debut directorial feature The Bird with the Crystal Plumage and, let’s be honest, there’s no real need to try and sell this to you as dyed-in-the-wool Argento fans would have pre-ordered it once it was announced as who wouldn’t want to own a dual-format 4K restoration of one of the milestone giallo movies from a legendary director, all presented in a fantastic box set with a poster, lobby cards and a 60-page booklet with exclusive writings on the film? »

“I can hear it now: ‘Go to Italy. It’s a peaceful country, nothing much ever happens there’.”
In 1970, young first-time director Dario Argento (Deep Red, Suspiria) made his indelible mark on Italian cinema with The Bird With The Crystal Plumage, a film which redefined the ‘giallo’ genre of murder-mystery thrillers and catapulted him to international stardom.
Sam Dalmas (Tony Musante, We Own the Night), an American writer living in Rome, inadvertently witnesses a brutal attack on a woman (Eva Renzi, Funeral in Berlin) in a modern art gallery. Powerless to help, he grows increasingly obsessed with the incident. Convinced that something he saw that night holds the key to identifying the maniac terrorizing Rome, he launches his own investigation parallel to that of the police, heedless »

Whether you think remaking Dario Argento’s Italian horror classic “Suspiria” is good idea or not, there’s no denying just how enticing the new version looks on paper. Not only is Luca Guadagnino behind the camera, and not only does the ensemble cast include his “A Bigger Splash” stars Tilda Swinton and Dakota Johnson, but the movie has also recruited Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke to compose his first original movie score.
Thew news of Yorke’s involvement broke last month, and it was especially exciting given how much success his bandmate Johnny Greenwood has had when it comes to movie scores. Greenwood has been behind the original scores for “There Will Be Blood,” “The Master,” “We Need to Talk About Kevin” and more, and there’s no reason Yorke shouldn’t be able to »

There’s a bit of apprehension surrounding the Suspiria remake, but you have to admit the project has attracted some stellar talent. A Bigger Splash and Call Me by Your Name helmer Luca Guadagnino is directing the film, with a cast that includes Tilda Swinton, Dakota Johnson and Chloe Moretz. As if all that weren’t enough, Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke will be providing the score.
In a new BBC 6 Music interview, Yorke spoke about his approach to the project, revealing that one of the score’s inspirations was Vangelis’ now iconic Blade Runner soundtrack: “It’s absolutely terrifying…It’s hard because I’m way out of my comfort zone, and I can’t read music so it’s not like I’m writing for orchestra. I’m building it all myself. In fact, I watched Blade Runner twice at the weekend. ‘Oh, that sound, I could do something like that, »

Thom Yorke will compose the score for upcoming remake of Dario Argento's 1977 cult favorite Suspiria. Italian director Luca Guadagnino (Call Me By Your Name, I Am Love) will direct the new version of the horror classic. These are going to be some mighty big shoes to fill for Yorke and Guadagnino as the score and lighting, respectively are arguably two of the most iconic features of the original Suspiria. Guadagnino has teased that he will be taking a different approach to the coloring, making it "cold, evil, and really dark." So what is Yorke's score going to sound like?
Yorke is best known for his work as the lead singer/multi-instrumentalist from Radiohead, in addition to his solo work and Atoms for Peace. He will be scoring the remake on his own. Though only speculation, the sounds of Yorke's Prophet 08 synthesizer will fit the bill perfectly. But Yorke is »

The reimagining of Dario Argento’s cult horror classic Suspiria, which is to be helmed by Luca Guadagnino, has found its musical muse to work on the score for the film: Radiohead’s very own Thom Yorke.
Yorke is best known as the singer and main songwriter for Radiohead, is diving in on what will be a first in his career. His fellow bandmate Jonny Greenwood has scored films such as There Will be Blood and The Master, and Suspiria will mark a new stage in Yorke’s musical career.
The remake is set in 1977 Berlin and follows a young American woman (Dakota Johnson) who joins a prestigious dance company. She arrives just as one of the members mysteriously disappears and begins to suspect that the dance troupe is harbouring a disturbing secret. Tilda Swinton, Chloë Grace Moretz, Mia Goth and Jessica Harper also star.

It looks like the Suspiria remake is getting a perfect pairing in Radiohead’s Thom Yorke! It has been revealed that the iconic songwriter/musician/frontman will be providing all of the music for the upcoming movie.
Sitting down with Variety, director Luca Guadagnino provided his thoughts on collaborating with the Radiohead frontman:
“Thom’s art transcends the contemporary. To have the privilege of his music and sound for Suspiria is a dream come true. The depth of his creation and artistic vision is so unique that our Suspiria will sound groundbreaking and will deeply resonate with viewers. Our goal is to make a movie that will be a disturbing and transforming experience: for this ambition, we could not find a better partner than Thom.”
Suspiria is considered one of the best horror movies of the ’70s. Specifically, that surreal genre of horror that came out of Italy at the time. »
