Call Me By Your Name director Luca Guadagnino's unsettling and original take on the 1977 cult horror classic Suspiria.

In this riveting psychological thriller, American dancer Susie Bannion arrives in 1970s Berlin hoping to join the world-renowned Helena Markos Dance Company. In her very first rehearsal, Susie stuns the company’s famed choreographer, Madame Blanc, with her talent, vaulting to the position of lead dancer. Olga, the previous lead, breaks down and accuses the “Mothers” who run the company of being witches. But before she can flee, she is captured and tortured by a mysterious force somehow connected to Susie’s dancing. Despite these early warning signs, Susie continues her rise to the top of the dance academy at all costs. As rehearsals continue for the final performance of the company’s signature piece, “Volk,” Susie and Madame Blanc grow strangely close, suggesting that Susie’s purpose in the dance company goes beyond dancing.

Suspiria features a powerful female cast, including Academy Award winner Tilda Swinton, Dakota Johnson, Chloë Grace Moretz and Mia Goth, and haunting music composed by Radiohead lead singer Thom Yorke.
