Suspiria (1977)

It stars an American actress and it’s set in a German ballet school, but nonetheless it’s one of the defining cornerstones of Italian cinema, so much so that acclaimed director Luca Guadagnino (I Am Love, Call Me By Your Nameloosely remade it in 2018. The original, shot in 1977 and directed by Dario Argento, Italy’s greatest master of kitschy thrills and chills, is a sordid supernatural tale of dancers and demons, maggots and murder. Of particular note is the lurid color palette and epic prog-rock score by the band Goblin. Basically, this is about as much fun as a horror movie can be. —Jesse Ashlock, U.S. editor
