Suspiria ★★★★½

only the fairytale lullaby dresses nightmares like this; so sweet in its violence that blood is turned pink. the real stain of horror is in the star-sprinkled vision that sets suspiria alight among the often dim and dampened genre. it’s magical to the core - be that strangled and rotting - and twists awe to repulsion to the song of a hypnotising score. truly a masterpiece of sight and sound, with a story that bleeds through through the sensory dream-land.
