SUSPIRIA is not your ordinary remake, but a smart re-writing of Dario Argento’s 1977 horror classic. Unfolding in Berlin in the same year Argento’s film was made, it finds delicate American Susie Bannion auditioning for a prestigious international dance academy. She’s untutored, but has the kind of ferocious commitment that the strange mistresses who run the all-female school are looking for. In particular, she entrances the precise Madame Blanc, who is both an exacting tutor and elegant den mother. Around the same time that Susie enters, students are disappearing and it’s apparent that some ancient wickedness lurks in the bowels of the school.

The horror of SUSPIRIA comes from the uncanny interplay between history and myth that Guadagnino brilliantly combines with his usual visual verve. Thom Yorke contributes an eerily dramatic, disquieting score to the film.

NB: This film will not be shown on a daily basis.
