LA, here’s a rare chance to see a fully uncut 35mm print of Dario Argento’s classic “Suspiria”!

For many years the only version of the film screened in the US was heavily truncated; thanks to the good folks at The Chicago Cinema Society, who discovered a near-pristine 35mm print, you are now able to watch it as director Dario Argento intended.

Here’s what the Chicago Film Society had to say about the new print: After a brief inspection to assess the overall condition of the print, it appears as if it had only been screened a handful of times at most. The print is in excellent physical condition with no substantial wear, uncut heads and tails, minimal fading and no vinegar syndrome. Once we had the print in our film archive, we then made a very careful inspection to determine which version of “Suspiria” we had obtained. We were stunned to find that the print is a completely uncut 6-reel print with a run time of 98 minutes in the Italian language.”

 

Special Thanks Chicago Film Society, Dario Argento
