One of the masterpieces from the genius of giallo, Suspiria ventures into a ballet academy, where young ballerina Suzy arrives only to discover that something bizarre is happening in this place. The school’s hallways become a nightmarish labyrinth, and dance merges with witchcraft, in one of the most categorical and aesthetically exuberant horror milestones.
Rome, 1940. Along with Mario Bava, he is the great architect of Italian horror movies, specifically, of giallo, which distinguished both of them. A regular in Sitges, where he received the Time Machine Award in 1999, Argento is responsible for masterpieces like Deep Red (75) and Suspiria (77).
