Dario Argento’s phantasmagoric gothic nightmare blends operatic violence, disorienting dream logic and hyper-real visuals to create a horror classic.

Horror 1977 101 mins

Director: Dario Argento



Dario Argento’s phantasmagoric journey into the occult is Gothic at its most vibrant. Aspiring ballerina Suzy Banyon enrols at a prestigious European dance academy, only to uncover the terrifying mysteries kept hidden by its faculty.

Co-written with actress Daria Nicolodi, the plot follows a disorienting dream logic that is perfectly complemented by a hyper-real visual style, blending operatic violence with a fairy-tale twist. Argento's classic is now available in a new presentation from its definitive recent 4k restoration. Ranked joint 221st in the 2022 Sight and Sound Great Films of All Time poll
