Ah, ça fait plaisir ! :)
An incredibly strange, disturbing and creepy film. Has two absolutely wonderful murder scenes that are pretty freaky. This film also has some of the best complementary production design and cinematography I've ever seen in a movie. Every image was gorgeous and completely surreal. The ending was very scary indeed. Pretty wonderful.
Quando si racconta una fiaba, si deve in ogni modo accentuare i particolari che rendono unica quest'ultima. Suspiria è la fiaba che Argento ci vuole raccontare. La racconta come se fosse lui il primo a crederci. E nel farlo, trasforma la sua fantasia nella più brutale realtà. Tra l'onirico e il drammatico, questo film è il caposaldo dell'horror italiano. Anzi...dell'horror mondiale. Dopo di lui, il nulla.
This is like the craziest nightmare you've ever experienced. It's an incredibly dodgy film, with its garishly set design, dodgy dubbing, hammy acting, and unmistakably deranged soundtrack. Don't let that fool you though - it only adds to the film's surreal charm. Baffling, skin-crawling, surprisingly entertaining.
The colors, the shapes, the lines, the doors, the music and the atmosphere, such a great film.
Ignore the laughable plot, roll with the garish, hyper-stylized visuals and the bombastic rock soundtrack, and let yourself in for a one-of-a-kind ride on the ghost train.
This movie was so good it won gold: http://io9.com/5932565/russian-synchronized-swimmers-win-olympic-gold-with-the-theme-to-suspiria
This could have gone by with absolutely no horror scenes, no blood, no death, not even a single frightening image or theme and still the visuals and score would have made me piss my pants
Took a time for me to get the morbid facet of this, but, damn, those saturated colours, those dazzling lights, that overblown soundtrack...! All of that just made the death scenes so pleasing to watch, and that's why this film is so macabre: It makes you love all that blood and screams and monsters, makes you wish death, so plastic as the interiors, so beautiful as you have never seen before.
God, Argento is such a boss. This reminded me of Rosemary's Baby in some parts . . . and the EDing was just as weak . . . but I still loved it >:D Green and red lights plus stabbing beating heart ftw!
It’s quite a bit sillier than I thought it would be given its reputation but the set designs are gorgeous, the lead actress is very charming and it has the noble distinction of having a nearly all-female cast that isn’t sexualized or made to seem inept. Recommended for some good cheesy fun for horror lovers, art deco enthusiasts and those who are interested in a rarely seen sort of female lead.
