Dario Argento’s beautifully scary Suspiria is set to receive a 4K restoration in 2017 to celebrate the films 40th anniversary. The film has been restored by TLEFilms and will be premiering at the Berlin Film Festival, before heading to other countries for a limited theatrical run.
On a stormy night, the American dancer Suzy Bannion arrives in Freiburg coming from New York to join a famous and expensive ballet school for a three years training. On the next morning, she is informed by the direction of the school that a student she met leaving the place on the previous night was violently murdered and the police is investigating the crime. She becomes friend of another student, Sara, and she realizes that the house is indeed a coven of evil witches.
Suspiria is a perfect choice for a 4K restoration, because it’s so damn gorgeous. The mind boggles trying to imagine how stunning the visuals are going to look.
The remake of Suspiria is also set to be released in 2017, so I hereby name 2017 as the Year of Suspiria! Luca Guadagnino is at the helm of the reimagining which stars Chloe Moretz, Tilda Swinton, Mia Goth, Jessica Harper and Dakota Johnson.
