“What lingers is not a sense of evil but exhilaration in how far Argento and his fellow filmmakers were willing to go to shock and delight; the movie's sheer exuberance is the cinematic equivalent of a blood transfusion.” - Adam Nayman, The Ringer

“As an appetizer to the thoroughly bizarre world of Italian horror, SUSPIRIA is the perfect antipasto.” - Adam Smith, Empire Magazine

February 9 at 8:30pm | With SUSPIRIA, Argento’s cult classic delivers a nightmarish feast of witches, the occult, and the supernatural. The innocent Suzy (Jessica Harper) travels to Germany to attend a prestigious ballet academy, quickly discovering the school - and its building - is a house of horrors, where corpses, maggots, and barbed wire serve as the decor. With the iconic, thumping score by Italian prog-rock band Goblins, SUSPIRIA is a full-body cinema experience. 4K digital restoration by Videa.
