Suspiria (1977) – Movie Trailer
Alright, so being a big horror movie fan, as well as being just generally a true cinema fan, I have seen a ton of great movies over the years, both on the big screen and on the small… Well in horror, alot of people would agree that a part of the golden age of the horror movie was in the 1970s… Unfortunately that was one of the decades that I happen to miss! And so when I got the opportunity to watch Suspiria (1977) on the big screen and got the opportunity to watch it on the big screen with director who made it! Well of course I had to see it!
Now before I continue on, let me say this, Dario Argento (Opera), is a brilliant master of horror… As a matter of fact, if you haven’t seen any of his work, you really should, it is pretty amazing!
And as for Suspiria, this movie, which stars Jessica Harper (Shock Treatment), tells the story of Suzy Bannion who travels to Germany to perfect her ballet skills. She arrives at the Tanz dance academy in the pouring rain and is refused admission after another woman is seen fleeing the school. She returns the next morning and this time is let in. She learns that the young woman she saw fleeing the previous evening, Pat Hingle, has been found dead. Strange things soon begin to occur. Suzy becomes ill and is put on a special diet; the school becomes infested with maggots; odd sounds abound; and Daniel, the pianist, is killed by his own dog. A bit of research indicates that the ballet school was once a witches’ coven – and as Suzy learns, still is.
