Suspiria Trailer

"Do you know anything about witches?" Even though it's no longer October, that doesn't mean you can't still appreciate great horror movies. Dario Argento's Suspiria is one of the best horror films ever made, a hyper-stylized thriller about a dancer who discovers her ballet school in Germany is actually a coven of evil witches. There is already a remake in the works, which we'll ignore for now, but in the meantime Italy has restored the film for its 40th anniversary. Suspiria is being re-released in 4K in Italy starting next January for a couple of days. There's a short new trailer for the restored version to watch below, but I'm just happy to hear this is getting a re-release. Maybe it'll hit US theaters sometime in 2017 before the remake comes out? We can only hope. For now, we just have to be jealous of all the moviegoers in Italy who get to see this.

Here's the new Italian restoration trailer for Dario Argento's Suspiria, direct from YouTube:


In a stormy night, the American dancer Suzy Bannion arrives in Freiburg coming from New York to join a famous and expensive ballet school for a three years training. On the next morning, she is informed by the direction of the school that a student she met leaving the place on the previous night was violently murdered and the police is investigating the crime. She becomes friend of another student, Sara, and she realizes that the house is indeed a coven of evil witches. Suspiria is directed by Italian horror master Dario Argento, and was first released in 1977. Starring Jessica Harper, Stefania Casini, Flavio Bucci, Miguel Bosé, Barbara Magnolfi, Rudolf Schündler, Udo Kier, Alida Valli & Joan Bennett. From the news story on Variety: "Videa hired German lab TLEFilms to do digital restoration on the damaged 35mm celluloid original… The original Suspiria screen titles have been also been restored, as they appeared in Argento's original cut."

This could be the offspring of David Lynch and Don Coscarelli.

I remember seeing this in the theater... the first five minutes was really intense... then not so much. Loved the music though.
