REVIEW ROUNDUP: SUSPIRIA

We have a single new release this week, the all new Suspiria – an homage to Dario Argento’s 1977 giallo classic starring Dakota Johnson and Tilda Swinton.

Read on for a selection of reviews, or pop in to make up your own mind.

SUSPIRIA
“Always bonkers, often brilliant and best seen in good company. Hopefully you’ll still be talking afterwards.”
4/5 – RTE

“It has a strange, blood-steeped beauty unlike anything else around, and comes slithering out into the world with transfixing sinuousness and poise”
5/5 – Telegraph

“Suspiria is a film of rare and unfettered madness, and it leaves behind a scalding message that’s written in pain and blood: The future will be a nightmare if we can’t take responsibility for the past.”
IndieWire

“Traditional horror fans won’t be pleased: Almost transgressively, Guadagnino has deprioritized the shocks, even the fear. But in their place, he’s pumped up the exotic strangeness and crafted a movie you can get lost in, which is the ultimate tribute”
5/5 – Time Out
