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.
