Weekly Watch is a special series for the month of October. Each Monday we’re sharing a movie, and a Frightday staffer will lead a discussion on our Facebook group the following Friday.
A newcomer to a prestigious ballet academy comes to realize that the school is a front for something sinister amidst a series of grisly murders.
This 1977 Italian horror classic was written and directed by Dario Argento, a key player in the Giallo genre (Italian horror with strong mystery, slasher, and crime elements). Argento’s other notable works in this vein include Opera and Inferno. The soundtrack was provided by Goblin, a progressive rock band also from Italy.
Suspiria is a classic piece of horror with a highly lauded commitment to being a sensory experience. It is also worth noting that there is a 2018 remake in the works starring Dakota Johnson. For all of these reasons and more, our staff feel Suspiria is well worth watching and discussing.
Suspiria is not available to stream from any major site. We advise you rent it from a local video store if possible.
