January 8, 2018
Unhappily, Argento never summons the courage to abandon narrative completely, so the script is continually acting as a brake while the visuals are driving forward to the next set-piece
December 4, 2017
Suspiria is a baroque piece of esoteric expressionism that you enter - and exit - without understanding so much as feeling.
September 7, 2017
A film that has been hugely influential amongst fans and filmmakers alike for four decades now, Suspiria remains one of the greatest horror movies ever concocted, and the new 4K restoration is the perfect celebration of Argento's mad genius.

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.

Edgar Wright summed up the experience of watching Suspiria with his typical insight. "It's like a dream you've had when you've eaten too much cheese."

From stormy start to fiery finish, it's a stylish, compelling, phantasmagoric movie.

October 30, 2012
Its outlandish, confounding style [does] more than virtually any other film to create the exact sort of unsettled, panicky mood in the viewer that is at the heart of horror.
Full Review | Original Score: 10/10

Argento's masterpiece is a movie in which nothing and nobody makes sense.

April 29, 2012
There is little logic in 'Suspiria,' just the exuberance of individual scenes.
June 26, 2011
Encountered as one might a childhood nightmare or a flesh and blood incarnation of a Grimm fairy tale.

[VIDEO ESSAY] Dario Argento's sixth film is a textbook example of the horror sub-genre known as "Giallo."

February 2, 2011
Italian prog rockers Goblin's tingling, rasping, throbbing score [and] Argento's constantly gliding camera creates an almost unbearable sense of unease and suspense.
January 18, 2011
Anyone but the most hopeless addict to linear neatness and plausibility should be tastily beguiled and tantalized by Suspiria's cavalier disregard for making rational sense.
June 7, 2010
An eye-popping maelstrom of visual excess.
January 15, 2010
an extravagantly stylised Danse Macabre... a surreally demented fairytale, and one of very few films that occupies the no-man's-land between charnel house and arthouse.
September 1, 2009
A movie that makes sense only to the eye (and even then . . .).
January 1, 2009
A direção de arte e fotografia impecáveis, associadas à angustiante trilha e à direção segura de Argento, compensam as más atuações e o roteirofraco, criando uma experiência intensa e incômoda.
| Original Score: 4/5

Argento's skilful use of unsettling, intense colour and stunning set designs adequately obscure the film's numerous structural flaws.
