I've read a lot about horror director Dario Argento, but I've only seen one of his movies, and now, I've seen it twice. Suspiria (the 1977 movie, not the Cabaret Voltaire song) is so glacially slow, it became the first of a trilogy that concluded in 2007. What ties the trilogy together are witches, and, with this film, invisible witches. Jessica Harper battles an invisible witch. By "battle," I mean she walks down a hallway, see a seated old woman with a girl on her lap, then the girl pulls out a mirror and flashes light in Harper's eyes, and Harper freaks out. At the end, she enters the coven for payback, but, until then, it's death by dogs and indoor barbed wire pits for the supporting characters. Recommended.
