Existing somewhere in the limbo between THE RED SHOES and Rainer Werner Fassbinder's New German Cinema, Luca Guadagnino's (CALL ME BY YOUR NAME) riff on Dario Argento's horror masterpiece follows hopeful American dancer Susie Bannion (Dakota Johnson) as she joins the world-renowned Berlin-based Helena Markos Dance Company—and quickly begins to realize there may be more going on than meets the eye. A darkness swirls at the center of the company, one that will engulf Bannion, the troupe's artistic director (Tilda Swinton), and a grieving psychotherapist (Lutz Ebersdorf). Some will succumb to the nightmare. Others will finally wake up. With a score by Radiohead's Thom Yorke.
"It is impossible to discuss the rapturous, experiential masterpiece that is Guadagnino’s SUSPIRIA without dedicating this much space to its thematic density. It’s not a film one considers, but excavates, continually finding additional symbols and meaning within the deceptively simple setting." —Britt Hayes, Screen Crush "It’s only hours afterward that Guadagnino’s film will cohere for you and yield its buried treasures: the bonds of secret sorority, the strength of a line of dancers moving like a single organism, the present rippling with the muscle memory of the past. It’s so good, it’s scary." —Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out
