Cinematographer: Luciano Tovoli
Dir. Dario Argento. 1977, 92 mins. Imported 35mm print of uncut UK version. With Jessica Harper, Alida Valli, Joan Bennett. Director of Photography Luciano Tovoli brings a feverish color palette to Italian horror maestro Dario Argento’s most beloved film, set in a gothic ballet school for girls that turns out to be run by demonic witches. From the gory and gorgeous Art Deco-inspired dazzler of an opening, it’s clear that Suspiria offers a thrilling visual treat, so spectacularly designed and shot it sometimes feels like the most twisted Technicolor musical ever.
