One dark night, an American dancer arrives at a baroque European ballet academy, where she is greeted with students fleeing in a panic, secretive headmistresses and a series of murders and supernatural occurrences that grow increasingly gruesome. Eventually she discovers to her horror—and our frightful delight—that the school holds terrifying secrets within its walls. Almost impossibly stylized and highly influential (David Lynch, Nicolas Winding Refn and Guillermo del Toro are all big fans), Suspiria is a classic of contemporary horror, a Technicolor fever dream of stunning imagery that has recently been digitally restored to its full nightmarish glory.
