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 »
Really......How dare someone remake a classic like this!
First of all, to anyone who saw the original Suspiria directed by Argenta...what did you think?
It isn't that I have anything against remakes as a whole, IF the writer or director can make a better version or improve the original in ANY form or perhaps even bring it up to date.
In this situation, you have the original Suspiria movie, which let's face it, the plot isn't that great. However, as filmmakers and theater actors all know, a plot is only one part of the whole of the movie. The main value that the original Suspiria had going for it is called "spectacle", "original sound" and originality.
The beginning of the original Suspiria starts with showing scenes in extremely bright colors, strange situations and obnoxious and at times very unnerving music. You are literally stressed as soon as the movie begins and it's hard to explain why. That is it!! That is what made Suspiria a Classic! Period! So, I found it extremely unusual that anyone would find it necessary to recreate this movie for the plot alone and just try to "refresh it"! Nice TRY!! Marvel comics wants you to write for them next time and to please stay away from the Horror genre and please stop butchering the classics that believe it or not, someone that was around before you and actually knew what they were doing has already done and did extremely well. Thanks!
