Dario Argento's SUSPIRIA
June 21 - June 22, 2013
The culmination of our perverse triple bill of foreigners abroad, SUSPIRIA stars Jessica Harper as a young American who has gone to Europe to attend a famous ballet academy. Once there, however, she discovers that all is not as it seems and the school hides dark and terrible secrets. This phantasmagoric, frightening film from Italy’s maestro of horror, Dario Argento, creates an amazingly palpable feeling of dread through its disorienting use of color, sound, and off-kilter performances. Not to be missed on the big screen!
(1977) dir Dario Argento w/Jessica Harper, Stefania Casini, Flavio Bucci, Barbara Magnolfi, Udo Kier, Alida Valli, Joan Bennett [92 min; 35mm]
