31 Days of Halloween – Day 6 – Suspiria (1977)

Dario Argento’s masterpiece is one of the finest horror films ever made – an audio and visual feast and completely, completely mad. American ballet student Suzy (Jessica Harper) travels to Munich, Germany, to attend a prestigious ballet school. The ballet school is run by – well, that’d be telling.

With the haunting soundtrack of Goblin – referred to as ‘The Goblins’ in the film’s opening credits – and some really horrible trademark Argento gory moments (he really loves lingering shots of stabbing beautiful women, often playing ‘the glove’ himself), see Suspiria before the US remake is done and dusted. Nothing can touch this classic, and a remake is sacrilege.
