The theme music is one of the best ive ever heard

You should look into Argento's entire filmography if you liked Suspiria, his style is universal throughout his career, although Suspiria's sound effects and music were better than anything he ever did.

Just like to point out that the 5 disc Blade Runner Blu Ray is probably the greatest BD deal ever, only $30.00 for something that's easily worth over $100.

Check out this badass RJD2 song that heavily samples sounds and music from Suspiria: Weather People

Oh BTW I have a great one you guys have probably never seen that isn't well known. It's available on Instant queue now and I watched it last month and was very pleasantly surprised. It plays out like a Stephen King movie/novel. That kind of creepiness where you're thinking the whole time "Wtf was that!?" or "Wtf just happened". Of course it also comes with a crazy twist in the end. It creeped me the hell out lol.

It's called "Dead End" with Ray Wise as the lead.

Both are horror/suspense movies. The pacing in them is what drives you up the wall the most, and plays with your senses. By the end of the movie, you're climbing up the walls just dying to find out wtf the big deal, and or secret is because they've been putting you "on edge" the entire time. One is creepier though, and I believe its Suspiria, due to the style in which the director films.

I know! The chick in the beginning.. that they just invite into the car. You could tell that bi*** was bad news! I would of driven off as fast as possible! Did it have that Stephen King feel in your opinion? We seem to have similar taste in movies. If you see any others on Netflix bump this thread. Have you seen Invasion of body snatchers or mad max? I just saved those.

Suspiria is actually part of a trilogy, and I use the word trilogy loosely. It's not really a trilogy like say...Back to the Future, more like the Man With No Name, where the same theme or symbolism is used. It goes Suspira, Inferno and then Mother of Tears

Start off with that to finish off the trilogy if you'd like.

The chick may have been bad news, but she was hot in that movie, so I can see how someone wouldnt want to say "no" to that.

To be honest, im kind of surprised that its a King production...it doesnt have that feel at ALL to me.


Maybe im just used to his 90s shit like Pet Cemetary, the Langoliers, and Creepshow. Things that he was involved with, but the direction on the films had a cheesy feel to them. And while Dead End was cheese as well, it was pretty damn good too....not saying the others werent good, but it didnt feel the same. I dont know...

And I saw the Invasion of the Body Snatchers on there, but havent watched it yet. Mad Max...I watched that 100 years ago...I need to rewatch, because I hardly remember it.


I recently watched Jim Hensen's the Dark Crystal. Awesome.

So none of the films have really anything to do with each other?

Right, because a zombie, battling a shark is awesome. It teeters on being "epic"

Don't even get me started. The Supiria soundtrack was done by an act called Goblin, and they have made a shit ton of awesome soundtracks for Italian movies.

I just watched it for the first time and damn, left quite an impression. I wasn't really impressed until the end, then it got me. If there is a feeling like this after I watch a movie, I know it was great...
And I don't even like film noir and dystopian setting.
