American ballet dancer Suzy has secured a place at a prestigious German dance school. Sounds great, right? However, from the moment she arrives, it becomes clear that sinister events are unfolding. In the school's hallways, bathed in an intoxicating blood-red glow, Suzy tries to find an explanation for the strange occurrences tormenting her and her fellow dancers.
Suspiria is a film that truly shines on the big screen. The school's walls radiate deep red and toxic green, enveloping the viewer and the characters in a trance from which they won't escape for the rest of the film. This nightmare is complemented by the eerie sounds of the prog-rock band Goblin. The film reaches its peak when the assault on the eyes and the assault on the ears converge, and you can't take your eyes off the screen. At that moment, there's nothing to do but endure the nightmare.
