Dario Argento’s 1977 slasher has gained a reputation as one of cinema’s landmark horror films.

American ballerina Suzy Bannion arrives in Germany to study at the prestigious Tanz Dance Academy. But when a series of murders and a variety of other inexplicable events begin to pile up, Suzy realises her new school houses a terrifying secret.

A psychedelic Technicolor nightmare, Suspiria’s garish colour palette and bravura set pieces remain extraordinary, but it’s the frenzied sense of dread added by Goblin’s iconic score that arguably made the film the horror powerhouse that it is. An unrelenting cacophony of experimentation and crescendo, it simply never lets you relax. Prepare to be terrified, perplexed and astounded all over again.
