| Pretentious, gross & boring.
Susie Bannion arrives in 1970s Berlin to audition for the world-renowned Helena Markos Dance Co. When she vaults to the role of lead dancer, she uncovers dark and sinister secrets as they probe the depths of the studio's hidden underground chambers.

I found this film to be a convoluted mess that is confusing, slow, and a true chore to sit through. The film is glacially slow whilst presenting very little substance and lacking interesting character development. With muddled plot lines and aggressively grotesque violence, this is a very hard film to like. The film started rather intriguing, to the point of becoming interesting, with Chloë Grace Moretz delivering a noteworthy performance as usual, until the film descends into utter farce as Johnson's character is introduced.

Overall, Suspiria is too long, too empty with false fullness - too keen on being visually and viscerally delinquent at every opportunity.
