Suspiria is an Italian horror and suspense film created in 1977 by Dario Argento, although at first a synopsis of Suspiria may seem somewhat cliché when saying that it is about a young American ballet dancer who is going to intern at a prestigious academy in Germany where strange things begin to happen, the film is actually surprising, I am not a lover of the horror genre but this story is not only simple terror of blood flying everywhere, it is a film that immerses you in constant tension and suspense, becoming a classic that was remade in 2018, but I didn't even want to see it for fear that it might ruin the image of the original, which not only has a story about the supernatural that catches you but which is so well done to be really scary and at the same time be a work of art.
One of the things I like the most about Suspiria is the musicalization of the scenes, I think it is very well achieved in terms of the tension that it generates in the body when listening to certain high notes at times, few horror movies that manage to stay recorded in memory thanks to music, as for example in Alfred Hitchcock's film Psychosis, most people recognize the background music when the murder occurs, in this sense Suspiria also has that magic that makes when listening to the music of the scenes become indelible.
The scenography is one of the most beautiful things that exists, the house where the ballet academy works as well as the colors of the furniture, walls, ceiling and floor, were made in a very aesthetic way where the color palette of the composition of the scenes are very well cared for, also the lights of the scenes sometimes red lights, give it a dreamy atmosphere, which could well be a nightmare. These bright colors at the same time make contrasts with the frequent dark scenes in the film, they make the dark and rainy environment of that part of Europe seem like a prediction of the horror story that takes place there.
On the other hand, I like the fact that the protagonist of the story at first does not know what she is facing, in a certain way the villain of the film is discovered almost at the end of it, that is, it is not like others films where from the beginning it is known what the protagonist is facing, likewise, such a transition of events takes place in a very organic way, because the young woman could not realize that something was wrong in the academy from the beginning, although her arrival was quite run over by the rain and the fact that they did not open the door the first night.
Creo que lo mejor de todo es que aunque el final se sabe la razón por la cual ocurren las muertes y desapariciones de la personas en la película, algunas imágenes dejan cierta duda y no se sabe exactamente la razón de algunas de ellas, creo que ese aire de misterio es necesario para poder producir la emoción que necesita el espectador de una película de terror y por eso para mí es una de las mejores.
