A New York ballet student (Jessica Harper) enlists with a renowned German conservatory and before she even steps out of the taxi on its way from the airport, it is clear that something is off about the place.  Dario Argento's film is a highly held horror offering, mainly due to some gruesome bloodletting effects (which are sparse in an otherwise surprisingly tame slasher flick) and impressive camerawork which disguise a barebones, virtually nonexistent plot.  Suspiria proves that all it takes is a little blood and gore and not much else for horror fans, the least discriminating of all moviegoers, to soak it up.
