“Suspiria” is arguably one of the most hallucinatory film experiences ever to be shown in theatres and Beyond Fest is about to destroy retinas and brain cells in equal measure by not only screening the film twice in one night, but also in the presence of the great maestro himself, Dario Argento.
This truly is the bout of our times: in one corner we have the newly discovered, uncut 35mm print ready to go head-to-head with the newly produced, 4 years-in-the-making 4K restoration by the mighty Synapse Films. Who will win and what will be left of them?
Let’s be honest though, there are no losers here. You get to see one of the wildest, scariest, most insane acid-drenched horror films of all time TWICE & Maestro Argento will be on hand for a post film Q&A. Prime your questions well in advance.
An assault of the senses, “Suspiria” is collectively one of the Beyond Fest crew’s favorite films; we are beyond thrilled that we get to crack skulls & stained glass windows with our film brethren as we host the mightiest of Italian horror nightmares.
Death Waltz Recording Company will also be unveiling something very special at the Mondo booth on the evening of the screening …..You have been forewarned! (Spencer Hickman)
