Luca Guadagnino’s “Suspiria” isn’t so much a remake of the 1977 Dario Argento horror classic as it is a seriously insane (and seriously serious) expansion on the original.

An unsettling, feminist expansion on the 1977 Argento cult horror classic. Luca Guadagnino’s Suspiria follows Susie Bannion, an aspiring dancer from an Ohio Mennonite community, as she realizes a forbidden and supernatural destiny within the shelter of the strangely timeless Helena Markos Dance Company. Accompanied by a dark, historical backdrop, bewitching modern dance, and an eerily beautiful soundtrack, the company’s sinister and magical secrets manifest in a manner that is both grotesque and cathartic, shocking and inevitable, revealing an ancient power behind the company’s peculiar matrons which will amaze, terrify, and hold you spellbound.
