Dollar Bin Film - "Suspiria"


A newcomer to a fancy ballet academy gradually comes to realize that the staff of the school are actually a coven of witches bent on chaos and destruction.
Thank god for yard sale movie boxes! Known as Dario Argento's masterpiece, this film is stunning to look at. The colors and set is absolutely stunning. The musical score by Goblin is beautiful. The first 15 minutes of the film are, in my opinion, the best opening of any film. Period. I do wish the ending was a bit longer and more detailed, but the simply fact that the look of the film is so beautiful gives this eerie feeling as you watch the death scenes, as if the beauty covers the evil. Every horror fan should see this at least once.

***On a side note, I am going out of town for the weekend to celebrate Orthodox Christmas with my Bubba and Pappy (yeah were a little late lol). I will be back on Monday or Tuesday with my splurge of the week, a new Spotlight, and more of the Dollar Bin Films that started it all....Plus my take on I spit on your Grave.

I just saw this within the last year. I was never a Giallo fan. It is a beautiful movie, but I had some trouble following the story at times (had at least one "wasn't she killed already" moments).

Wow, if you found Suspiria in your basement who knows what's next....Lucio Fulci perhaps? Goody.

One of my all time faves. Check out INFERNO next if you haven't already. It is part 2 of Argento's "Three Mothers" trilogy and it is wonderful as well.
