Storyline

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 Domingo Alvarez

Goofs

At the end of the ritual scene, one of the deceased dancers on the left side of the screen clearly has their head showing, but in the next shot it's edited out again. See more »

Quotes

Dr. Josef Klemperer: [to Sara] Patricia wrote about "Three Mothers" lost to time, predating all Christian invention. Pre-God, pre-devil. Mother Tenebrarum, Mother Lachrymarum and Mother Suspiriorum. Darkness, tears, and sighs.

Ignore the haters!
20 January 2019 | by pjtrekkerSee all my reviews

I felt compelled to respond to the haters out there. This is a modern classic. One of the best horror movies ever made. If you do not like to think then this movie is not for you. If you liked the Shining then this movie is for you. It's not as scary as say Hereditary but it is more inventive, more compelling and will haunt you. Every adult should see this movie. If you're sick of the Hollywood typical tripe like the Conjuring, Halloween or terrible found footage films, then see something the likes of which you'll never see again.
