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
Luca Guadagnino told The Hollywood Reporter that Suspiria is his most personal movie, because of the way that everything started with it. See more »
The movie is set in the so called: "Deutscher Herbst", the peak of left-wing RAF-terror in 1977. This period was quite warm with fair weather. The movie however shows low temperatures, heavy rain and snow. While this was probably meant to underline the dark tone of the plot, it is historically incorrect. See more »
[about Patricia, in subtitled German]
She didn't want to be a vessel. We wanted to bring her into our power but she wanted to blow up department stores instead. What a fool, that girl.

I just didn't get this movie. I was led to watch it because I wanted to see an example of Tilda Swinton's acting. I'm sorry I picked this as an example! I never saw the original '77 movie, so I have no idea what this movie was all about. It was just a totally confusing waste of 2 1/2 hours. Many other good reviews have been posted so mine would just be redundant, and I wouldn't know what to say anyway. Just skip this!
