Suspiria: 4K Restoration


Synapse’s 4K DCP restoration of Dario Argento’s giallo masterpiece Suspiria is coming back to the big screen this October!

The 1977 chiller stars Jessica Harper as Suzy, an American dancer who travels to Germany to study ballet. She is admitted to her dream school but not before one of the students is found dead in an intricately grisly way. As Suzy explores the gorgeous but menacing house and its history, she comes across strange noises, stranger teachers, and a rapidly increasing body count…

We thank 20th Century Fox and Synapse Films for joining forces to ensure that Argento’s uncut and restored vision is shared with horror lovers as it was meant to be seen – bright, vivid, bloody, and loud!

“In Suspiria, Argento’s use of space, lighting, vivid colors, grandiose set pieces, and Goblin’s score create a masterclass in suspense and subliminal terror.” – Alex Arabian, Film Inquiry

“Suspiria is a baroque piece of esoteric expressionism that you enter – and exit – without understanding so much as feeling.” – Anton Bitel, Little White Lies

“…a feast of tension and atmosphere, deeply unsettling.” – Evan Dossey, Midwest Film Journal
