Zachary’s review published on Letterboxd:
I was conflicted about giving Suspiria five stars after my first watch but my experience this time left me no doubts. I think it’s impossible to fully experience this film to its full extent the first time, at least for me. I was worried that I would feel the runtime more this time because I knew what was coming but I was even more engaged taking in all of the details I’d missed. Everything just clicked and this made it all that much more intense. I swear it felt like I was actually being possessed during the Volk dance it’s insane. Looking at reviews after my first watch, I had thought my anticipation may have caused me to enjoy it more than I actually did but this viewing put that completely to rest and is one of my favorite experiences in a theater in general. This is one of those movies that I’m just very thankful for its existence and all of the weird and wonderful things it has brought into my life. Definitely my favorite film of the year.
Also, this was the first time I’ve been carded in a theater in a long time so I (19) feel sad in this Chili’s tonight.
