A darkness swirls at the center of a world-renowned dance company, one that will engulf the artistic director, an ambitious young dancer, and a grieving psychotherapist. Some will succumb to the nightmare. Others will finally wake up.
The enchanted lives of a couple in a secluded forest are brutally shattered by a nightmarish hippie cult and their demon-biker henchmen, propelling a man into a spiraling, surreal rampage of vengeance.
A couple travels to Sweden to visit a rural hometown's fabled mid-summer festival. What begins as an idyllic retreat quickly devolves into an increasingly violent and bizarre competition at the hands of a pagan cult.
Susie Bannion is a young American ballerina who travels to Berlin to study dancing at the Markos Tanz Company, one of the world's most renowned schools under Madame Blanc's management. On her very first day, one of the students who had been recently expelled from the school is murdered. As this appalling happening does not seem to be an isolated occurrence, the brilliant new student soon begins to suspect that the school might be involved in the homicide. Her mistrust heightens when Sarah, one of the girls at the school, tells her that Pat, before being killed, confided to her that she knew and guarded a terrifying dark secret.Written by
Jessica Harper, who played Suzy in the original Suspiria (1977), appears late in the film as Dr. Klemperer's wife Anke. In an interview with her and screenwriter David Kajganich at the film's Fantastic Fest premiere in Austin, TX, Kajganich revealed he and director Luca Guadagnino thought Anke would be the best character for Harper to play, Guadagnino contacted her and proposed the idea to her, which she immediately agreed to - and then she immediately contacted the Berlitz School to learn and practice German for her scenes, as she had lied to Guadagnino about speaking the language. For Harper, the hardest thing to do was get the dialect right while walking backward. See more »
In the Mdme Blanc (T.Swinton) initial interview scene of Susie, she is smoking, but several times her front (Susie's P.O.V) cigarette holding hand position does not match that from behind Mdme Blanc shots. See more »
The original Suspiria had a very powerful soundtrack, atmosphere, exploited architecture and most scenes were filmed during nightime with colorfull lighting and YES it was scary !!!. This new Suspiria 2018 version has nothing to do with what made the original a masterpiece. It's a total mess with hardly any music at all. A very cold and pretentious movie with laughable scenes (The 2 policemen visiting the dance school and the dance performances). It's like the producers, directors never cared or comprehended what made the original film so special. An insult to Dario Argento's original film and fans. He must not be happy about this chaotic disaster.
