Closing Night
Da non perdere perché è un classico dell’horror che ha elevato Argento a maestro del genere.

In 1977 Suspiria terrified audiences worldwide. Now, just over forty years later, Dario Argento's neon-soaked nightmare returns to the big screen in dazzling 4K, showcasing the film’s vibrant Technicolour palette in all its deep red (and green, blue and gold) glory.

Ballet student Suzy Bannion (Jessica Harper) arrives at a prestigious dance academy in Freiburg, a school plagued by gruesome and supernatural happenings. Soon students begin to die in horrific circumstances – is Suzy next, and can she uncover the academy’s sinister secret before it’s too late?

Italian horror (‘giallo’) auteur Dario Argento’s visionary symphony of terror, Suspiria (co-written by his then-girlfriend Daria Nicolodi) abandoned the traditional conventions of giallo in favour of a witchy brew of magic and mystery. A ground-breaking masterpiece beloved for its bravura use of colour and hallucinogenic storytelling, Argento’s masterpiece is the most famous Italian horror film of all time. This year, before you see Academy Award-nominated director Luca Guadagnino’s (Call Me By Your Name, A Bigger Splash) hotly anticipated remake, give yourself over on Closing Night, to the incomparable beauty and horror of Dario Argento’s Suspiria.

Dario Argento

For nearly 50 years the ‘Master of Horror,’ Dario Argento, the Roman-born-and-raised auteur, has defined the parameters of the stylistically dazzling and gory giallo genre. He is largely responsible, together with Sergio Leone, for the rediscovery of Italian cinema as a rich basin of fantastic populist movies that go way beyond the borders of their genre bounds. His films include classics like The Bird With the Crystal Plumage (1970), Profondo Rosso (1975), Inferno (1980) and Opera (1987). 

Please note, while the trailer may not include subtitles, the film will be screened with English subtitles.
