Suspiria (34)“Suspiria”Screening the Past, December 2016.

Almost four decades after its initial release, Dario Argento’s Suspiria (1977) continues to demand attention. In her contribution to the Devil’s Advocates series, Alexandra Heller-Nicholas has crafted an insightful exploration of this Italian cult horror film in Suspiria (2015). The study is divided into three sections: locating the film within the horror canon, a close analysis of the film, and its history of reception. Heller-Nicholas combines in-depth visual analysis with fascinating technical and contextual details, rendered throughout in an expressive prose that captures the entrancing quality of the film itself.
