Suspiria

Suspiria ★★★★½

Entry number 17 in Shocktober 2014.

Holy wow! Those first and last 15 minutes are some of the most spectacular things I've seen in a while. The colors, the rain, the architecture, and the creepy creatures all mesh together into two giant monstrous scenes. Fantastic stuff. The rest of the movie is fine. You'll never be bored looking at the film or listening to it, since the colors and score by Goblin are always interesting and super strange. There's another great scene in the middle involving a blind guy and some sound effects. None of this takes place in the real world, but of course, that's kind of the point, so I loved it. For an all out assault on the senses, give me this over Cannibal Holocaust's faux-provocateur nature any day of the week.
