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
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 »

I really love the original Suspiria. It is my favorite Argento film. Its visual style and music are great. It really introduced me to Italian horror. When I heard of this remake I was reluctant as I always am about remakes. The truth is that it is a complete reimagining, not really a remake. But it is way too long, pretentious and slow for me to recommend it. I admire that something different was tried with this film, but on the other hand why call it Suspiria?
I will not go into any plot details but needless to say it is a mess of a movie. It is supposed to be a horror film but has no real suspense. In fact it is so over the top that it is actually funny.
The last 30 minutes are especially unintentionally funny.
Stay away. Go see the original masterpiece.
