Dario Argento's 'Suspiria' (45th Anniversary Screening)
9:00pm - Saturday, Oct 29, 2022
Join us at the Rio Theatre this October as we continue our annual deep-dive into some of our favourite seasonal fare, which would be incomplete without director Dario Argento's giallo-infused, "candy-coloured," phantasmagoric nightmare of a horror icon SUSPIRIA ("the most terrifying movie ever made!").
This genre-defining cult-classic has been lovingly restored and remastered in glorious 4K - the film's bizarre colour schemes come alive in a whole new way. Buoyed by a phenomenal soundtrack from the Italian band Goblin, SUSPIRIA is "nightmare fuel" for the senses - and can only be truly enjoyed on the big screen... If you dare!
Suzy (Jessica Harper) travels to Germany to attend ballet school. When she arrives, late on a stormy night, no one lets her in, and she sees Pat (Eva Axén), another student, fleeing from the school. When Pat reaches her apartment, she is murdered. The next day, Suzy is admitted to her new school, but has a difficult time settling in. She hears noises, and often feels ill. As more people die, Suzy uncovers the terrifying secret history of the place...
"It's always fascinating to watch; the thrills and spills are so classy and fast that the movie becomes in effect what horror movies seemed like when you were too young to get in to see them." (Time Out)
"The blood pours freely in Argento's classic SUSPIRIA, a giallo horror as grandiose and glossy as it is gory." (Rotten Tomatoes)
"From stormy start to fiery finish, it's a stylish, compelling, phantasmagoric movie." (The Observer)
