Berlin! 31.10.18 A Spellbinding Halloween: ‘Suspiria’ (1977) + Live Ballet Performance

The Berlin Film Society is excited to announce our next event, featuring Dario Argento’s 1977 cult horror classic SUSPIRIA (arguably the most famous of all Italian horror films) over two nights on Wednesday 31st October (Halloween) and Thursday 1st November, over 40 years since the film’s original release and just before the release of Luca Guadagnino’s remake.

As the film is about an American ballerina who attends a German ballet school, the event will take place at the renowned Staatliche Ballettschule. We are also incredibly excited to announce that the acclaimed Brazilian ballerina, Aurora Dickie, has choreographed a dark and surreal piece inspired by Argento’s film, performed by dancers from the Staatliche Ballettschule.


In true Halloween spirit, this event has a recommended dress code: let yourself be inspired by the art of Suspiria, whether you go as a witch, a ballet dancer or a blind piano player. The best dressed guest will be rewarded for their efforts with a surprise goodie bag.


An innocent American ballet dancer’s excitement at being accepted to a prestigious German dance school turns to terror when she discovers that the institution is a cover for a murderous coven of witches. A nightmare fairytale etched in neon colour, Dario Argento’s witchy shocker Suspiria remains the most famous of all Italian horror movies. Suspiria is the horror movie as high art. Acclaimed for its febrile tone, experimental score by Goblin, garish lighting and baroque violence, it’s a barrage of primal terror, blood and guts, eardrum-piercing noise and dreamlike imagery.

Berlin Film Society, a non-profit organisation dedicated to showcasing the best in world cinema in Berlin, films which otherwise might not be seen.
