      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      The blood pours freely in Argento's classic Suspiria, a giallo horror as grandiose and glossy as it is gory.

      Alyx Vesey Bitch Media What makes [Suspiria] especially effective is how they use horror to make a point about educational institutions' enforcement of gender hegemony to interrogate conventional femininity. Jan 7, 2021 Full Review Adam Nayman The Ringer What lingers is not a sense of evil but exhilaration in how far Argento and his fellow filmmakers were willing to go to shock and delight; the movie's sheer exuberance is the cinematic equivalent of a blood transfusion. Oct 5, 2018 Full Review Christy Lemire ChristyLemire.com Argento accomplishes so much simply through lighting and music - which goes a long way to compensate for the stilted dialogue and awkward character interactions. Rated: 3/4 Apr 16, 2018 Full Review Sean Axmaker Stream on Demand ... a stylish, surreal, downright puzzling piece of seventies Grand Guignol weirdness ... Nov 4, 2023 Full Review Howard Waldstein CBR Suspiria is abrasive, corny in all the right ways, and a blast from start to finish. Jul 18, 2023 Full Review Steve Warren The Barb (Atlanta) Suspiria is more interesting for its style that its story. May 5, 2023 Full Review Read all reviews

      Kam P Saw this movie for the first time in 2024, the plot is not very complicated, but the lighting and music is quite effective. Worth watching, in spite of appearing dated compared to more recent scary movies. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 05/12/24 Full Review Christian K Not as insane as I would of preferred for a giallo. Has the expected incredible score and vibes. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 04/03/24 Full Review Enrico P My all time fave horror movie. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/23/24 Full Review Eeva V Absolutely a great movie! I appreciate the camera angles and the lighting of the movie. It combines my two favorite things: dance and horror.

Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/22/24 Full Review lena s that movie was great, and while it might not been scary, it was still so amazing and so beautiful.
