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.
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 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 »
The original Suspiria, directed by Daria Argento, was a masterpiece for a horror,suspense, mystery, fantastical film. This is a remake of it but instead of improving narrative, cinematography, character development, plot devices, script and acting, it fells short, very short. this does not scare at all nor makes you wonder what'll happen next.
I like Tilda Swindon but her acting, because of script, is extremely weird and out of place.
No redeeming value whatsoever. It's a waste of filmmaking.
