Synopsis

SUSPIRIA…like you’ve never experienced – restored in 4K!

In 1977 SUSPIRIA stunned cinemagoers around the world. Now, forty years later, CultFilms is proud to terrify audiences once again with the dazzling 4K restoration of Dario Argento’s groundbreaking masterpiece.

Italian horror auteur Dario Argento unleashed the ultimate cult film with his visionary symphony of violence, SUSPIRIA. Ballet student Suzy Bannion (Jessica Harper) arrives at the prestigious Tanz Academy in Freiburg, a school plagued by gruesome and supernatural happenings. Soon students begin to die in horrific circumstances – is Suzy next, and can she uncover the academy’s sinister secret before it’s too late?

Abandoning the black gloves of the giallo in favour of a witchy brew of magic and murder, Argento carved a Baroque nightmare, saturated with expressive colour and punctuated by shocking violence.

Considered the most famous Italian horror film of all time for its vivid, groundbreaking style and jaw-dropping bloodshed, SUSPIRIA now returns for its fortieth anniversary to assault audiences once more.

Information on the restoration:Dario Argento welcomes you to HIS Suspiria, published by CultFilms in its new restored 4K version! The new 4K scan was painstakingly restored by TLE Films* in Germany with the crucially distinct colour palette reinstated in accordance with Argento’s original Technicolor Dye Transfer specification, using period films materials as reference. The restorers also reinserted all missing frames which had degraded badly or were simply lost over the years, making this version which is premiered by CultFilms the most complete and original looking version of SUSPIRIA, finally doing justice to Argento’s original vision. *(TLEFilms’ acclaimed works include the Clint Eastwood “Dollar’ Leone westerns, Fritz Lang’s ‘M’, most Otto Preminger’s films to name a few.)
