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
Although Dario Argento gave permission to produce this remake, he was dismissive of the final results in an interview with Indiewire from August 2016: "Either you do it exactly the same way - in which case, it's not a remake, it's a copy, which is pointless - or, you change things and make another movie. In that case, why call it Suspiria ?". Argento also said that what's really absurd is that he was never asked about anything concerning the remake, nobody asked him about casting, locations or anything else. Luca Guadagnino told The Hollywood Reporter in 2018 that he's friends with Argento, who called him after he saw the film, and although he didn't want to relay Argento's reaction, he said it was a great call. In an interview with Italy's Radio Rai 1's "Un Giorno da Pecora" in January 2019, Argento said the film did not excite him: "It betrayed the spirit of the original film: There is no fear, there is no music. The film has not satisfied me so much." Argento added that it was "a refined film, like Luca Guadagnino, who is a fine person. Guadagnino makes beautiful tables, beautiful curtains, beautiful dishes, all beautiful..." See more »
The film opens in West Berlin in 1977, with protesters chanting, among other things, "Free Meinhof!" However, Ulrike Meinhof was already dead by that point. She was found hanged in her prison cell a year earlier than the film is set, in May 1976. See more »
[to Madame Blanc, communicated telepathically]
It's all a mess. The one out there...
The one in here... the one that's coming. Why is everyone so ready to think the worst is over?

i need a T-shirt that says 'I watched ALL of Suspiria".
One reviewer said that if you liked 'The Shining" you would love this film - I liked The Shining but found Suspiria to be tedious, pretentious, overlong and lacking a strong narrative. To make an effective 152 minute horror film would require a strong screenplay and a great director/editor and Suspiria is sadly lacking in these areas. Nearly every recent film could do with removing about thirty minutes and Suspiria does not have the content for more than 90 minutes but here we have film-makers suffering from the delusion that they are Stanley Kubrick but are closer to Ed Wood jr with a large budget. The only thing that impressed in this turkey was Tilda Swinton's make-up and like Vice, good make-up does not compensate for the multitude of shortcomings in these films.
