My Double Bills # 15 Horror double feature: Drag Me to Hell & Suspiria
If Drag me to Hell is the B Movie then the Main feature is Suspiria. Made in 1977 by Dario Argenta this movie has an incredible atmosphere of foreboding and terror; this is in part due to the strange synth score from Goblin and the rich palate of colour used in both set design and lighting. The opening sequence where Suzy Banyon (Jessca Harper) arrives at an airport in a storm and is taken to a baroque boarding school sets the tone, with its deranged score and dream like atmosphere. It has elaborate murders, witches and young women being terrorised by, among other things maggots, bats and Razor wire. But apart from it having a vein of dark humour running through it, it's a hallucinatory and disturbing movie that stays with you. Argenta is a unique filmmaker and many would say this is his finest feature.
