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.
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.
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.
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
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 »

Amazing, artistic , disturbing
This film is a piece of art. Please ignore the negative reviews and judge for yourselves. It is a complete contrast from Dario Argento's movie and is best viewed as a separate piece of work. While Argento's masterpiece is rich in colour this is the opposite and very muted throughout. Thom York's soundtrack is haunting next to the stunning visuals and works perfectly. Dakota Johnson and Tilde Swinton stand out with a bubbling tension between them throughout. If you are a Fan of art house horror films then this movie is for you !
