‘Suspiria’ the Latest Film to Receive a 4K Restoration

It’s been announced that Dario Argento’s classic horror film Suspiria will be getting a 4K restoration next year as a way to celebrate the film’s 40th anniversary, according to DarkHorizons. German lab TLEFilms restored the film, which is said to be making its premiere at the Berlin Film Festival. It will then travel to other countries for theater runs.

Argento has stated, “I can’t wait to see it at the movies again with all the young people who will see it for the first time.

On a stormy night, the American dancer Suzy Bannion arrives in Freiburg coming from New York to join a famous and expensive ballet school for a three years training. On the next morning, she is informed by the direction of the school that a student she met leaving the place on the previous night was violently murdered and the police is investigating the crime. She becomes friend of another student, Sara, and she realizes that the house is indeed a coven of evil witches.

A remake of Suspiria is currently in production with director Luca Guadagnino. It will star Dakota Johnson, Tilda Swinton, Chloë Grace Moretz, and Mia Goth as well as original film star Jessica Harper. It is being produced by Amazon Studios.

I’m going to take a second to gush here because I love Suspiria. Can you imagine how gorgeous this film is going to look with a digitally remastered 4K edition? God, those colors are going to be absolutely stunning! No matter what, I will find a way to make a theater visit happen!

    So, how is this going to affect Don May, Jr.’s release of Suspiria? I wonder if people are going to skip his upcoming release and just go for the 4K version? He’s been working on the Blu-ray restoration for 2 or 3 years, hasn’t he?

    • I was going to ask the same question. The time and care they put into their releases is unparalleled, I really hope this doesn’t outshine their hard work. But considering the fact that Suspiria is my all time favourite film, I am happy to see that a 4k transfer is in the works.

    This is one movie that begs to be seen on the big screen and with great sound.
    I was lucky enough to catch it on a big screen and with good old dolby stereo many years ago ….it was just astounding .

    Woohoo!! I was just thinking the other day thatI’d love to get to see this in the theatre and I happen to live in Berlin 😉 tick tock waiting!

  • Thank god, I tried watching this one a few weeks ago & the format on the DVD was mind boggling. The disc came from Netflix & the movie was separated into 4 different sections on the one disc with some awful transitions. It had to a VHS copy or something because the amount of grain & terrible audio made it unwatchable. Don’t recall the company names physically printed on the disc. If it’s a classic like some make it out to be I want to watch this one for sure. preferable before the remake hits.

  • I think this pathetic movie should rank up there with ‘Don’t Look Now’ as one of the most overrated horror movies ever made. Not only is this movie overrated, Dario Argento is overrated as a director as well. I have seen some of his movies and the only one I liked was ‘Demons’. ‘Suspiria’ is always called ‘visually stunning’ when there is nothing stunning about using bright colors in sets. I look forward to the reboot, it can’t be much worse than the original… X-D
