Dead of Night: Hull Horror Film Festival presents: SUSPIRIA (40th Anniversary Restoration)
Dario Argento | 1977 | Italy | Cert 18 | 92 mins
At Vue Cinema Hull: BUY TICKETS
40th anniversary screening of Dario Argento’s masterpiece, back to the big screen in its newly restored version, as part of the CultFilms UK tour of SUSPIRIA 4K. A newcomer to a prestigious ballet academy comes to realize that the school is a front for something sinister amidst a series of grisly murders.
A candy-colored nightmare from Italian terror maestro Dario Argento, SUSPIRIA weaves a menacing tale of witchcraft as a fairy tale gone horribly awry. From the moment she arrives in Freiberg, Germany, to attend the prestigious Tans Academy, American ballet-dancer Suzy Banyon senses that something horribly evil lurks within the walls of the age-old institution. Ill at ease as the result of her fellow student’s peculiar behaviour and increasingly terrified following a series of gruesome and spectacular murders, Suzy slowly begins to unravel the dark history of the academy. Convinced that the occult roots of the school and the horrific tale of its founding mother may hold an unthinkable secret, she begins a hallucinatory journey into the black heart of one of the most powerful witches ever known to exist.
Starring Jessica Harper, Stefania Casini, Udo Kier, Joan Bennett, Alida Valli, Flavio Bucci
“As an appetizer to the thoroughly bizarre world of Italian horror, SUSPIRIA is the perfect antipasto.” – Adam Smith, Empire Magazine
“It’s always fascinating to watch; the thrills and spills are so classy and fast that the movie becomes in effect what horror movies seemed like when you were too young to get in to see them.” – Scott Meek, Time-Out
SUSPIRIA is rated 18 by the BBFC. For more information, please visit their website.
The film will be preceded by short films by claymation filmmaker Lee Hardcastle: Texas Chainsaw Massacre in 60 seconds with clay & Alien claymation
