Suspiria

Suspiria ★★★★★

Suspiria's elegance and grandeur comes from its moderne set pieces, eerie playacts, and strange visual metaphors. Together with Thom Yorke's score, it is a performance piece of women empowerment, taking advantage of their feminine bodies and nuances which are seen through non-voyeuristic male gaze. While it doesn't rely to jump scares, its horror comes from the dreary atmosphere of the Berlin-based dance company, and the brutal consequences of witch-dancing. Suspiria is a concoction of pus, blood, and urine, a nightmare that leaves an itch, asking for more.
