Thrilling news for Dario Argento fans! His timeless masterpiece of glamorized violence, visual hysteria and a deadly coven is getting a 4K restoration over at Synapse Films. That’s right, Suspiria is coming home in a master-class Blu-ray that no fan will want to be without.
Upon it’s earliest announcement, we’ve been craving this exclusive release, and at long last, come December 31st of this year, it’s finally happening.
This edition will be a steelbook release and features some breathtaking artwork befitting to the ethereal style of this imaginative horror classic.
The story of Suspiria is about a promising student who has just been accepted into a prestigious school of dance in Germany. This is the chance of a lifetime, and one Suzy Bannion (Jessica Harper) could not refuse. However, from the very start, weird and macabre oddities plague young Suzy as she slowly finds herself more entwined in a deadly web that ensnares all who fall prey to the coven.
One by one, grizzly murders occur in and around the elite academy. Suzy is confused by the odd things she hears whispered in the walls. She is often ill, and begins to suspect that something unearthly has besieged her surroundings.
Praised for its striking use of visuals and off-putting colors, Dario Argento bewitched audiences and solidified his place in horror history upon this movie’s release. Added to the graphic scenes of violence and chaotic sights is the brilliant score performed by Goblin. The combination of what we see and hear makes the entire film feel as though we are locked inside an unshakable nightmare.
