I am compelled to write this review because this movie gets an awful lot of flowery praise. To set the record straight, the movie does LOOK fantastic,, very vibrant colors, incredible lighting and sets that are perfect for a great horror film. Such an incredible production when put together with the great sound of the film.. the surround will blow you away on this movie especially hearing the footsteps around the academy. Now, the real nail in the coffin of this movie is the absolutely sophomoric plot that you are driven to stick with, given such a great looking movie. the story is slow, insipid and completley predictable, with one of the worst hurry-up endings since the original Hellraiser. So much time of this film is devoted to making you "feel" like you're watching a great horror movie, that the climax & deneumont seem as if the creators siad "oh crap, we have to wrap this up in about 5 minutes"..
so virtually NO scares, some decent gore for the time, but very few and far between, hackneyed story, awful ending that will make you feel like you really did waste about 2hrs of your life.
but, great looking movie, that hardly looks dated at all and great sound..

i gave this film two stars only because of its stylized camera shots,and the use of the creepy music was a good choice but it all leads up to a bunch of nothing.
one over the top bloody death at the begining and a dog that turns on its owner by tearing at it's neck.
only to conclude with the killing of a witch that snores real scary and is invisible!!!
this is not the scariest movie ever.
i think it just might be the worst however.

Does all of you wrote good reviews to not regret your purchase? What a dumb director! I have seen all Argentos movies and any of them has the merit to be a good film.
Don't get me wrong: As an artist and 3 years in cinema studies I have About 200 horror DVDs in my collection and love 80% of them.
Yes the colors, lightning blah blah blah but Booooring! Sloww pace and actors dance, and speak, and walk and speak and go on... Mr Argento has forgotten something: A movie is to be seen not to be told! It's not a book it's a movie... There is just about 15 minutes in the whole thing that it worth seeing and each of these minutes are really great and that's why my 2 stars are for. Prepare a pillow for over an hour.

That's a few hours of my life I won't get back, but I'm sure it was good for the time it was made.

I started this movie in the hope that it would be one of the scariest I have ever seen. I was sadly disapointed! The first kill seen was good but then the middle of the movie was slow and boring. It had a "Rosemary's Baby" feel to it. This would not even rank in the top 20 of scary movies I have seen. If you are looking for a scary movie don't choose this one. If you are looking for a ok movie with a good story this might be what you are looking for. I think the problem was I did a lot of reading on this movie and got caught up in all the hype of the movie.

I realize I am in the minority and that Suspiria is well-reviewed by many, but I found it to be a totally amateurish effort. The effects are awful (fake attacking dogs, bats on strings, and blood that looks like day-glow tempera paint.) It is stylish, but the colored lighting is overdone and the whisper and scream filled soundtrack gets annoying... The plot is disjointed and uncompelling, and the ending is unsatisfying...I can't believe that people compared this to the Exorcist and Shining.

After I finished watching this I could only wonder why "Suspiria" attained such a cult status. There were a few brief periods of suspense, and the mood and atmosphere make it somewhat interesting; however, you need more ingredients than this to come out with a decent movie. Not horrible, but mediocre at best.

and FLUNKS! I haven't seen acting this bad outside of a porn film. The plot is laughably lifted from many other films and held together by, well, nothing. It's no wonder Jessica Harper has disappeared. And Joan Bennet's performance makes her turn on Dark Shadows look award-worthy. Really!
Visually, it's wild to look at ... kind of like a whorehouse in Querelle or a Ken Russell daydream. Otherwise it does not have much going for it. The soundtrack is effectively creepy - but if you have a home theater system, be warned: it is LOUD.
And scary ... Not At All. The only frightening thing is the bizarre adoration some people have for this movie.
Artsy for those who haven't seen any real art films.

I bought this largely due to rave reviews here. What a shock
to realize I had seen this before - in its theatrical release.
Didn't like it then, don't like it now. The music's just wierd enough to be compelling, and I like Jessica Harper, it's just that the movie is less than the sum of its parts. Blurry red hallways, funhouse lighting, cliched characters (check out the Cloris Leachman-like teacher with the German accent and the vaguely militaristic outfit) - I just don't get the appeal.
Might seem raw and arty to someone who never saw a foreign film before.
