Suspiria ★★★½

There are parts of Suspiria that really work, including two you-have-to-see-it-to-believe-it scenes of terror that may send unsuspecting audience members fleeing to the lobby. But this is also one of those movies where I fear the whole ends up being less than the sum of its parts. Suspiria contains images that will stick with you for a long time, but it also fails to blend its many interests into a movie that feels like a unqualified success. That puts it a notch below the far shorter original, which managed to stay laser focused on its bizarre dream logic and was all the better for it.
