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.
