One of the most stylish and artistic horror films in history is Dario Argento's "Suspiria." The Italian director is known for creating fright films that are long on style and short on substance or plot. "Suspiria" is a surreal nightmare of a movie. It is full of sensory images many of which are horrifying. It is a film that is very dreamlike in its nature. The music by "Goblin" is mesmerizing and perfectly suited for this bizarre world Argento has created. The music is chilling and it is among the best music in horror film history. There is plenty of gore and violence in this film like most of Argento's films. Argento is a master of colorful images and "Suspiria" represents the best this director has to offer. There is no horror film quite like "Suspiria." What are your thoughts on "Suspiria?"
