A darkness swirls at the center of a world-renowned dance company, one that will engulf the artistic director, an ambitious young dancer, and a grieving psychotherapist. Some will succumb to the nightmare. Others will finally wake up. (2018, Luca Guadagnino, U.S., English, 152 min, R, DCP)
“SUSPIRIA is a gorgeous, hideous, uncompromising film, and while it seeks to do many things, settling our minds about the brutality of the past and human nature is not one of them.” — Emily Yoshida, New York Magazine/Vulture
“It’s impossible to ignore how skillfully Guadagnino dove into the material and came up with something all his own.” — Alissa Wilkinson, Vox
“You will stagger out of the theater wondering what exactly you just saw, but you will not easily forget it.” — Christy Lemire, RogerEbert.com
