There are a ton of really nifty Italian horror films, but the best is still Dario Argento
's swirling, candy-colored "Suspiria
." The tale of a young girl (played by Jessica Harper
) who attends a ballet school that is secretly run by a coven of murderous witches, "Suspiria" has it all: a tremendously moody score by Goblin, some of the greatest visuals ever put to screen (in a horror movie or otherwise), questionable dubbing, and a trail of imitators a mile long (I'm looking at you, "Black Swan
"). It is unlike anything that you've ever experienced, or will ever experience again.
