SHEFFIELD HALLAM UNIVERSITY MIDNIGHT GALA: SUSPIRIA (40TH ANNIVERSARY RESTORATION)

SUSPIRIADirector: Dario Argento | Italy | 1977 | 97 minutes

On the occasion of its 40th anniversary, we are proud to bring Dario Argento’s masterpiece back to the big screen in its newly restored version, as part of the CultFilms UK tour of Suspiria 4K.

American ballet student Suzy Banyon (Jessica Harper) arrives in Freiburg, Germany on a dark and stormy night to join the ranks of the prestigious dance academy, but soon discovers that the school is a façade for something more sinister as a series of gruesome murders unfolds.

With a pulverising soundtrack by Italian prog-rock maestros Goblin and dazzling Technicolor visuals courtesy of Director of Photography Luciano Tovoli, Suspiria is an eye-popping assault on the senses, and its reputation as a cornerstone of European horror is thoroughly well deserved. With a remake on the way, there’s no better time to reacquaint yourself with this bona fide classic.

Screening with BIRTHDAY + BELIAL’S DREAM
