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.
Set in contemporary Chicago, amid a time of turmoil, four women with nothing in common except a debt left behind by their dead husbands' criminal activities, take fate into their own hands, and conspire to forge a future on their own terms.
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

After watching the original as a teen falling in love with Goblin,s soundtrack and knowing the lack of fantasy that is a reality in todays movie business ...I longed to see one of my beloved horror films been shot again with all the goodies todays tech provides......what I saw was an incoherent plot far below the unsamble of a dynamic cast and a boring reference again to the poor victims of "concentration" camps...if anything..... the dark characters would be running the camps performing whitchcraft instead of putting tortured minds at ease......what a mess...and at 2 1/2 hours...... a rather long one
